Why Topps Update is so Fun

2020

Topps

Update.

Learn more about why Topps Update is always a fun set to break!

2011 Topps Update is now iconic because of a few players; Trout, Altuve to name a couple off of the top of my head, but to this day it’s a great opportunity to include a few players that were yet to be called up earlier in the season. 2020 Topps Update should be just as exciting.

Because of the delay in the 2020 MLB season due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there’s no telling what the call-ups this year may look like, or who will be the additional prospects coming to ‘The Show’, but Topps Update is always a fun set to grab either way.

Here’s the latest product information for 2020 Topps Update
