2022 Topps Archives Baseball Variations Gallery and Checklist

The 2022 Topps Archives Baseball variations feature several short-printed options in the throwback MLB card series.

Refer to the guide below to learn how to distinguish the different versions.

2022 Topps Archives Baseball Variations Set Details

Within the 2022 Topps Archives Baseball checklist are multiple short prints that tie into the base set numbering.

Showcasing top rookies, the Image Variations are the toughest, falling 1:429 Hobby packs or 1:414 Blaster packs. Pulling names from each of the three base designs, collectors can find posed base cards and limited action variations for most of the 1963 and 1978 subjects. However, for the 1987 players, the variations highlight more casual moments.

There are also Design Variations to chase. These open up a larger assortment of players, pulling a total of 100 cards from the base set. It seems Topps has lumped all these together in the odds, which works out to 1:72 Hobby packs or 1:69 Blaster packs. The Design Variations also come as limited parallels.

2022 Topps Archives Baseball Variations Odds Breakdown

Hobby Pack Odds

  • Image Variation - 1:429
  • Design Variation - 1:72
    • Silver Foil - 1:326
    • Red Hot Foil - 1:155
    • FoilFractor - 1:32,082
Blaster Pack Odds

  • Image Variation - 1:414
  • Design Variation - 1:69
    • Silver Foil - 1:313
    • FoilFractor - 1:31,265

For each base subset, there is a group of Design Variations. With the 1963 design, look for a background that has been filled in with a solid color. Another trick for these variations is that the smaller image in the circle shows a black-and-white photo without a color background. Please note that the filled-in colors change depending on the player.

The 1978 Design Variations are the most subtle since these cards only swap the colors between the team name and interior color frame. This is another instance where the color combinations are different depending on the subject.

On the other hand, the 1987 Future Stars Rookie Cup Variations are hard to miss given the large "Future Stars" text that accompanies the added Rookie Cup logo.
