The third iteration of the flagship MLB set, 2019 Topps Update Series Baseball builds on the previous releases with roster updates and a look back at the 2019 MLB All-Star Game. Each Hobby box contains one autograph or relic and Hobby Jumbo boxes promise one autograph and two relics.

While the base design and many of the inserts are the same as 2019 Series 1 and Series 2 Baseball, new rookies, players on different teams and debut inserts dot the collecting landscape.

2019 Topps Update Series Baseball Base

With 300 cards in the base set, 2019 Topps Update Series Baseball looks to bring a sense of completion to 2019. That means mid-season rookie call-ups, traded players or free-agent signings, and key moments from the year, including the All-Star Game and Home Run Derby.

2019 Topps Update Series Baseball Inserts

Carrying over, returning inserts include more 150 Years of Professional Baseball cards and another batch of the throwback 1984 Topps Baseball set in honor of its 35th anniversary.

However, 2019 Topps Update Series Baseball also has some new choices. The Family Business covers those players that have a rich lineage of MLB history.

Est. 1869 dives into the legacy of the earliest professional baseball team, the Cincinnati Red Stockings. The set covers 150 years of the franchise that is now the Cincinnati Reds.

On top of that, each insert comes in Blue, Black (#/299), 150th Anniversary (#/150), Gold (#/50), Red (#/10), and Platinum (1/1) parallels.

The Iconic Card Reprints set continues to honor key cards from the past, adding a 150th Anniversary (#/150) parallel.

Also new, 1984 Baseball Oversized Boxtopper cards fall one per Hobby Jumbo box.

2019 Topps Update Series Baseball Autographs

2019 Topps Update Series Baseball is less about hits than many of the other Topps releases, but there are still several different autograph lines. Legacy of Baseball Autograph and 1984 Topps Baseball Autograph cards are the most common. These have 150th Anniversary (#/150), Gold (#/50), Red (#/10), and Platinum (1/1) parallels. However, for the 1984 cards, the Red parallels are only in Hobby boxes and the Platinum parallels are exclusive to Hobby and Jumbo boxes.

There are also signed versions for the 150 Years of Professional Baseball, Est. 1869, Iconic Card Reprints and The Family Business inserts. These are limited to 25 copies or less.

One-of-one Cut Signature cards are some of the toughest hits to uncover.

2019 Topps Update Series Baseball Relics / Auto Relics

The 2019 Topps Update Series Baseball checklist variety picks up a bit more with the relics. Standard memorabilia cards include Major League Material, which is also issued in the 150th Anniversary (#/150), Gold (#/50), Red (#/10), and Platinum (1/1 - Hobby/Jumbo) parallels.

As many collectors know, the All-Star Game (ASG) is a focal point of the relic cards in Update Series. ASG choices consist of All-Star Stitches, All-Star Stitches Dual (#/25), All-Star Stitches Triple (#/25) and All-Star Jumbo (#/5 or less).

Another Hobby/Jumbo exclusive, the 150th Anniversary Manufactured Medallion cards offer 150th Anniversary (#/150), Gold (#/99), Red (#/10), Platinum (1/1), and Autograph (#/10) parallels.

    I will collect this series as I like the extension of the season classic set. Though why not call this Series 3 and number from 701-1000?

  2. Author

    Taking the card numbering up to 1,000 would make more sense for continuity but that’s just not how Topps treats it.

  3. Author

    Does Update, along with series 1,2 have the same cardstock as paper Bowman? Is Bowman paper 16pt? Topps online sets are mostly 16pt as well, is that heritage or bowman pt?

  4. Author

    Topps and Bowman card stock appears to be thinner than the online cards. Heritage is thicker than the on line cards. The card stock for Gypsy Queen was lowered

  5. Author

    What is going on with pre order prices on this stuff? $100 as of 6/16, for just a “small” hobby box, and that is a cheap price from the big three online guys…come on. It’s been $60-ish a box for several years now. And there’s less cards.
    But credit Topps for now putting the silver continuity packs INSIDE the boxes…..genius!!! Prevents all these shady dealers/stores/vendors from selling them for $10 (or more…) each….it takes all the fun out of it for us little guys who only want a box or two.
    I’ve been back in the hobby for about 7 years, and this year is the beginning of the end for me….can’t afford all this stuff anymore, it’s getting out of hand…this hobby is ALL about money and profit all the way around anymore.
