Topps-Series-1_header

2016 Topps Series One is going to be a definite change of the norm. Expected in February 2016, the base cards lose the white border and the number of cards will go back to a happy 350.

The hit collation will remain the same though; one auto/relic in a standard hobby box, and one auto and two relics per hobby jumbo boxes.  That being said, there are some fun new insert subsets including: Persepctives Insert, Topps Laser Insert, and Berger’s Best which will celebrate the legacy of Topps’ progenitor, Sy Berger.

Here’s the breakdown:
