2019 Topps Archives Baseball Variations Guide

2019 Topps Archives Baseball Variations Guide

The retro-inspired MLB card brand already has a lot going on but the 2019 Topps Archives Baseball variations add one more element to the nostalgic set.

There are a total of 10 image variations spread across the 2019 Topps Archives Baseball checklist. Collectors can find a few names from each base subset design, including a rookie photo variation for Vladimir Guerrero Jr. on the 1958 design and an image swap for Babe Ruth on the 1993 design.

Falling 1:207 packs for Hobby, these are fairly difficult to uncover. Put another way, that works out to about one SSP variation in every nine boxes.

2019 Topps Archives Baseball Subset Parallels

Another aspect of 2019 Topps Archives Baseball is the base subset parallel that applies to all 100 cards falling under the same design.

These combine to average 1:207 packs, which is the same Hobby pack odds as the image variations.

1975 Topps Signature Omission (#101-200) 

Basically a planned error, the Signature Omission cards remove the facsimile autograph from the front of the card.

    i have a degrom 2019 archives (card #199) that appears to be a variation in that the signature is missing on the front but the code looks to end in 058 and not 070. ???????

  2. Author

    That’s the 1975 Signature Omission Parallel noted in the guide above.

  3. Author

    Nope. Image variations are the only thing that ends in #70. What you have is technically a subset parallel.

  4. Author

    I have a #133 Senzel that’s numbered to /175… any idea what subset it belongs to? Thanks!

  5. Author

    That’s the base high-number card for Alonso. They all have that same code.
