2019 Topps Transcendent Collection Baseball CardsBrand: Transcendent
It's time to dust off your checkbook for 2019 Topps Transcendent Collection Baseball. The "pinnacle of high-end collecting" offers quality, exclusivity and steep box prices. In addition to 54 autographs, each box contains an invitation to a VIP party featuring Ken Griffey Jr.
Running $20K+ per box in 2016, 2017 and 2018, pricing is expected to be in the same range for 2019. While the production is always very limited, 2019 marks the highest number to date, with 100 boxes available. In comparison, 2016 had 65 boxes, 2017 went with 87 boxes, and 2018 totaled 83 boxes.
2019 Topps Transcendent Collection Baseball Base / Sketch
Although many ultra-premium brands feature just a handful of cards per box, 2019 Topps Transcendent Collection Baseball fills out the product with two complete sets in addition to the hits. The Transcendent Icons base cards are limited to 100 copies and the entire set is found in every box.
Collectors also receive the full 100-card run of Transcendent Franchise Favorites Reproductions (#/100). These are reprints of the sketches. Each box has one hand-drawn Transcendent Franchise Favorites Sketch (1/1) card, as well.
2019 Topps Transcendent Collection Baseball Autographs
Promising "the company’s most notable signers," the 2019 Topps Transcendent Collection Baseball checklist offers 50 cards from the Transcendent Collection Autographs set. These hard-signed collectibles come in a metallic gold frame. All cards are numbered to 25 and add Emerald (#/15), Purple (#/10), Red (1/1) and Platinum (1/1) parallels. Each box has at least two of the one-of-one editions.
There is also a full selection of Image Variation Autographs with the same print runs and parallels as the base autograph subjects, but on a different design.
Another box hit is from the one-of-one Derek Jeter Autograph line. The set revisits flagship designs and inserts from 1952-2019 with DJ as the sole option.
Moving on from 2018's 1952 throwback, the retro design of choice for 2019 is found via Autograph 1953 SuperFractor (1/1). Each box has one of these shiny cards.
On top of this, all boxes feature one Autographed Patch card or a new Cut Signature Bat Knob Book / Cut Signature Nameplate Book card. These are all one-of-one versions.
And the final 2019 Topps Transcendent Collection Baseball hit has a larger layout in mind. More specifically, each box works in one Oversized Cut Signature (1/1) or Oversized Letter Autograph (1/1) card.
2019 Topps Transcendent Collection Ken Griffey Jr. VIP Experience

Letting collectors rub elbows with elite stars, these events have proven to be very popular in the past. Prior attendees include Mike Trout (2018), Hank Aaron (2017) and Kris Bryant (2016).
