2019 Topps Big League Baseball Cards
Although kids and budget collectors are not normally a focal point of the modern hobby, 2019 Topps Big League Baseball is a reminder that there are some options out there that are both fun and inexpensive.
The low-cost brand returns following a 2018 debut that was relatively well received by many collectors.
2019 Topps Big League Baseball Base
One clear change from 2018 is the base design. Instead of a simple frame, 2019 Topps Big League Baseball has a layered-photo effect with a wood background. The nameplate is also more ornate with a wavy team pennant graphic.
The 400-card set offers rookie and veteran subjects, plus subsets for Award Winners, Highlights and Stat Kings. "Rare variations" were also mentioned, but no specific details were provided.
Parallels include Gold (1 per pack), Blue Border (4 per Value Box), Rainbow Foil (#/100), and Red Foil (1/1). The all-new Artist Rendition (#/50) parallel is particularly eye-catching.
2019 Topps Big League Baseball Inserts
Returning inserts include Players Weekend Nicknames and Star Caricature Reproductions / Originals.
The 2019 Topps Big League Baseball checklist tosses in several new inserts to chase, as well. Ballpark Oddities turns the focus to atypical events on the field. The home run-heavy Blast Off! celebrates the longest-hit bombs of 2018. On the flip side, Wall Climbers documents the impressive grabs at or near the wall, especially those that prevent a home run.
2019 Topps Big League Baseball Autographs
Signed cards remain rare in 2019 Topps Big League Baseball, but there are still some choices. The Big League Autographs line promises "MLB veterans, baseball personalities, retired greats, and more."
Rookie Republic obviously features key 2019 rookies. Both autograph sets include numbered Gold Border, Black & White Image (#/25), and Red Foil (1/1) parallels.
