2019 Topps Baseball Factory Set Rookie Variations Gallery
Bring home the easiest MLB image variations of the year with the 2019 Topps Baseball Factory Set rookie variations. Highlighting new flagship photos for five RC players, the bonus pack adds a little more pop to 2019 Topps Baseball Complete Set.
Issued every year, there is no shortage of flagship factory sets. As many collectors know, all the versions provide an extra incentive in addition to the full base lineup from Series 1 and Series 2. For many of the retail sets, that means a sealed pack of five rookie image variation cards included in the box.
The 2019 Topps Baseball Factory Set Rookie Variations lineup includes Eloy Jimenez, Fernando Tatis Jr., Pete Alonso and Vladimir Guerrero Jr.
Guerrero Jr. is interesting because his unnumbered SP variation in Series 2 was not part of the main checklist. However, he also makes an appearance in the factory set as card #700 with a different image along with the extra card in the rookie variation pack. So, that's two new Vlad Jr. rookie cards.
The good thing about the 2019 Topps Baseball Complete Set boxes is that they normally make note of the extra options found within. Therefore, you should double-check the outside of the box before you buy if you are uncertain about the contents.

“Too much of a good thing isn’t a good thing.” Multiple inserts, SP, SSP, Variations over the year’s is causing this collector (since 1969) to lose interest in the hobby. I don’t believe vintage rookie cards (like a Nolan Ryan) would be so special if multiple cards (SP, SSP, Variations) within the same year were printed? The hobby seems like it is moving toward the mid 80’s and early 90’s when there were plenty of cards to go around.
Keep up the good work Cardboard Connection.
Happy New Year’s everyone!
