2024 Topps Series 1 Baseball helps jumpstart the new year of MLB card collecting with another flagship release.

While Topps declined to reveal images in the Retail solicitation, fans can count on a few new options.

*Please note that Topps has not released the Hobby details yet.*

2024 Topps Series 1 Baseball Base / Parallels
Although the base lineup has offered 330 cards for a few seasons, the 2024 Topps Series 1 Baseball checklist sees the return of the 350-card base set.

The parallels include a familiar assortment along with all-new Yellow, Yellow Foil and Yellow Crackle (#/50) editions exclusive to Hanger boxes.

2024 Topps Series 1 Baseball Base Parallel Breakdown

Exclusives noted.

Yellow - 2 per box (Hanger)
Rainbow Foil - 1:10 packs
Royal Blue - 1:10 packs (Retail)
Yellow Foil - 1:10 packs (Hanger)
Gold - #/2,024
Blue Foilboard - #/999
Purple Foilboard - #/799
Green Foilboard - #/499
Orange Foilboard - #/299
Red Foilboard - #/199
Vintage Stock - #/99
Independence Day - #/76
Yellow Crackle - #/50 (Hanger)
Mother’s Day Hot Pink - #/50
Father’s Day Powder Blue - #/50
Memorial Day Camo - #/25
Platinum - 1/1
Printing Plates - 1/1
Another change comes with the flagship variations. While 2023 featured the Golden Mirror Image Variation set, the 2024 product provides True Photo Variation cards that strip away the design and let the imagery be the focal point.

In addition, spring is in the air for the 2024 Topps Series 1 Baseball Value Blasters. Look for exclusive holiday editions that combine to average three per box. These themed cards follow the Halloween cards from 2023 Topps Update Series Baseball.

Eggs - 1:21 packs
Rabbit - 1:56 packs
Flowers - #/50
Umbrella - #/10

2024 Topps Series 1 Baseball Inserts

Standouts from the past year are honored in 2023 All Topps Team, for top players, and 2023 Greatest Hits, for top moments.

Other debuts arrive with the Grand Gamers and Superstar Blueprint. The new Topps Mega Stars (Mega Box only) cards add foil parallels.

Limited to 500 copies per card, Heavy Lumber is back to showcase top hitters on a wood-grained design.

Falling once per pack, the 30-card Stars of the MLB set returns as a Retail-exclusive continuation insert also slated for Series 2 and Update Series. Another exclusive, Chrome Stars of the MLB averages 1:10 Retail packs.

2024 Topps Series 1 Baseball Relics / Auto Relics
As for the hits, 2024 Topps Series 1 Baseball sticks with the normal mix, including autographs, relics and autograph relics.

As usual, the throwback 1989 Topps Baseball Autographs line is noted as having on-card autographs.

Chase other signed cards with Baseball Stars Autographs, Baseball Stars Dual Autographs (#/10 or less), Postseason Performance Autographs (#/50 or less), World Series Champions Autographs (#/50 or less), and Cut Signatures (1/1).

Thanks for the information. Again with the Easter theme. Just like they did with Halloween. Just surprised they did not use the Hearts! Happy New Year, David
 
Thanks for the info. Cool to see the set jump to 350. Very curious to see the box details. I'm not going to buy a hobby box this year if it's the same 20 packs from Update. Might break down and buy a jumbo though...
 
Thanks for the info. Curious that they are waiting on releasing the hobby box pack out info.

For me, if they continue with their shrinkflation as they surprised us with on 2023 Update, then I will probably just wait for the complete factory set for $50 and call it done. No sense in paying their prices for less product to chase more cards that probably will take a few boxes thanks for their great collation.

I can only hope that they pay attention to us collectors, but I am not holding my breath.

Looking forward to any new info you get.

Thanks,
 
As far as the release info, Topps has been slow on most of their products. Maybe they don't like all the release delays as in the past.
 
I like the looks of it. I wonder if the partial black border will be a problem. Probably not if Topps is using the glossy cards. The release date is now February 14th.

Hmm...let's see....romantic dinner with the wife OR busting multiple boxes of Series I????? Guess I will make it up to her on her birthday!
 
The one thing that I am happy about is that they finally scarpped the short print stuff. I was fine with it when it started in 2009 with the old time players( Ruth,Cobb,Gehrig,etc..) but it got out of hand with the SP's, SSP's,SSSSSSSSSSP's and the like. I was okay with the ones that were in the 2023 Topps Holiday boxes but I just think that they went way overboard with that stuff.

But maybe it is just me.

Completely agree! I was a huge fan of subbing in old time players as an SP. If you bought a blaster, you could tell immediately that you had an SP. The past couple years, if you didn't have another card with the same number, you would never know it was an SP without doing research, and/or getting out a magnifying glass.
 
The sp's this year are same card as the base minus the Name, team name, position, border ect.. If I understood what I read correctly.
 
Just saw over on Blowout that the jumbo boxes will only have 40 cards per pack, rather than 46. 60 less cards per box. Absolutely loving the direction that Topps is going under the ownership of Fanatics.
