2023 Topps Series 2 Baseball Variations Checklist Guide 5Making purchases through affiliate links can earn the site a commission
Trey is a lifelong sports fanatic. He is a huge fan of the NBA and NFL, as well as soccer, college basketball and college football. As a kid, he collected football and basketball cards. In more recent years, he started collecting basketball cards again on a whim and has since expanded to other sports and entertainment options.

Kevin and Brian, I for 1 agree with what you 2 are saying. The variations as well as the massive amount of sub-sets are a joke. These are the reasons the product is becoming almost impossible to build the base set which the collector wants too do. When you purchase a box of cards you end up with a pile of variations and sub set cards no-one wants unless it’s that one of the few big names the rest are garbage yet these cards drive the prices up, specially if that card has a name on it like Mantle also there are the famous “prospects”,some selling for hundreds to thousands of dollars on a whim that they may be great. Do the math 90% plus of these players will never see a major league field unless they buy a ticket to a game somewhere,it’s not easy to make the show. So in the end it’s all about the DOLLARS,make the cards and they will buy. SAD

WELL SAID!!! I’m glad someone finally says it. For me personally, I’m just buying the singles I want. I don’t even buy boxes anymore and it’s a shame. Boxes are fun, ripping packs with the kids but Topps is all about business now so it’s no longer able to be a hobby as well as a business. For a while it was both. We could go into Walmart at 2am and find a few blasters to open on a whim. But nowadays everything is scalped by flippers or breakers. Breakers really ruined the ‘hobby’ part. And now Topps is issuing the death blow with all these junk variations. I’d rather see just the few stars everyone wants but come on, they made a Christian Arroyo SSP? When we stop buying this garbage, they’ll improve the product. Until that happens, they’ll keep making junk. And for those reasons, I’m out.

I know that Topps, Fanatics, or whatever else these inconsiderate idiots would like to call themselves can run their company however they wish. That said I am PISSED OFF with these 2023 Golden Mirror variations. As a passionate Atlanta Braves fan 15 years ago I went back and put together the Topps Braves team sets for EVERY year all the way back to 1951. Not an easy task when you were working part time. All of my cards are raw and in near mint condition with the exception of a few of the older ones like the 52 Mathews rookie of course. Either way I am very proud of what I achieved and it was a labor of love for sure. Fast forward to today and unless you are a millionaire can you dare participate in completing a team set of your team. There are many folks like myself that do consider the variations as part of a team set. Shame on you Topps for continuing to ruin the hobby. Notice I did say hobby since it will always be a hobby for the true collector. I do not enjoy paying exorbitant prices for cards that don’t really do anything for me. My 1991 Topps Ernie Whitt #492 card is far more dear to me than any Golden Mirror card ever will be. This is because it can be afforded by anybody that would like to have one. That’s the way it should be. Not every card has to have great collector value. I know many people didn’t love that cards were being mass produced back then but going to the extremes that they do today is not just absurd but down right cruel. What are you going to do next Topps? Might I suggest that you go back in time with your time machine only to make 2 or 3 cards in all of you former sets 1 of 1’s so that no set can be completed. I hope you have some kind of idea the damage you have done to the hobby throughout the years. And each year it gets worse and worse. I believe that your base Topps Baseball card set to be the most sacred and widely collected trading card set in the world. WHY WOULDN’T YOU WANT EVERYONE TO ENJOY IT????????? Look if you want to make photo variations by all means do so. But I do think your product would be much stronger if you let everyone join in your reindeer games. Another idea that would float my boat would be to make the variations insert cards and not an unattainable higher end version of the base set. If these had true defining characteristics that clearly made them inserts then I wouldn’t care if they were all 1 of 1’s. Now as for the base set it sure would be nice to see a greater selection of players in the team set. A true team set does not need 10 Acuna’s, 5 Michael Harris’s. It needs a card of everyone that played on the team for the season. And I mean everyone or as close as you can get. And for crying out loud would you please bring the manager cards already? I am ok with there being high end products for those who can afford such things but I believe there should always be some products too that should be just collectible for all. I believe if it ain’t broke don’t fix it but this model is wayyyyyyyyyyyy broke. Please give it the makeover it deserves. Please give it the makeover every collector deserves.


Sorry, not buying into Topps’ latest chase ripoff. I didn’t mind chasing a few of the photo variations of past, especially when they were switched for veteran legends of the past, but an expensive variation card of every single player is both ridiculous and prohibitively expensive. No more legend variations either.
