2022 Topps X Naturel 1952 Baseball pays tribute to the infamous history of 1952 Topps Baseball.
As many collectors know, excess cases of the '52 product were reportedly dumped into the Atlantic Ocean. This artistic release imagines what the recovered cards might look like with an assist from Lawrence Atoigue (aka Naturel).
Topps gave collectors an early peak at the cards via the 2022 ComplexCon packs.
2022 Topps X Naturel 1952 Baseball Set Details
1952 Topps Baseball has one of the most iconic designs in hobby history and 2022 Topps X Naturel 1952 Baseball showcases an artistic take on the cards, as though they were "salvaged from the ocean floor."
Offering a more traditional style, the base lineup includes 52 cards with spots for current stars and rookies along with past legends. Look for multiple foil parallels, including several nautical-themed editions. Collectors Edition boxes are the place to find exclusive Red/Green Foil cards.
Every box also contains one Encased Art Card from the 12-card set. These dive headfirst into the '52 lore, complete with a variety of underwater elements. Similar to Project100, each card arrives sealed and the themed design is presented on 130-point stock.
Check out the backs for additional options, including Silver Foil + Puzzle Back (#/150) for the base set and Silver Foil + Gum Back (#/199) for the Encased Art Cards.
The completed base puzzle features the card recovery ship.
Chase inserts include a Naturel self-portrait card, falling 1:12 packs, and an on-card Naturel autograph (1:50 packs).
Release Date: November 28, 2022
