Topps Living Set Baseball CardsBrand: Online Exclusives
A new concept from the card maker, Topps Living Set Baseball takes an open-ended approach to collecting. Instead of a standard release that lasts for one year, the online-exclusive Topps Living Set Baseball has no end in sight.
While not confined to one specific duration or even a certain period of collecting, Topps Living Set Baseball pays tribute to the 1953 Topps design using high-resolution images of hand-drawn artwork from the legendary artist Mayumi Seto.
Of course, there are some rules. Printed on 16-point vintage stock, each card is sold for one week and three new cards are announced every week. Single cards sell for $9.99 and three-card sets go for $14.99.
Also, the Topps Living Set Baseball checklist only includes one option for each player, unless that player is traded. So, there is no need to worry about a new Aaron Judge card every week of the set.
Card backs note the batting and fielding stats for the most recent year (when issued) and the lifetime stats from the same point in time, just like the 1953 set.
