We’re just one week away from the return of baseball, well not Spring Training exactly but we are so close! I’m talking about the release of 2018 Topps Series One baseball cards and Topps has just revealed the bonus promo packs’ content. It is a chromed 1983 Topps homage with some modern touches that will arrive along with the hobby’s flagship product next Wednesday, January 31st.
Collectors that buy a hobby box (36-pack boxes) will get one silver pack. Those who buy a jumbo box (12 Jumbo packs) will get two silver packs. Retail boxes are not included in this promotion. Each pack contains four cards highlighting the memorable 1983 design for its 35th anniversary. The big changes found will be in the refractor finish and the different parallels and autographed copies.
It’s a 50-card base set and there are seven distinct parallels in the set at the following scarcity levels: Blue (/150), Green (/99), Purple (/75), Gold (/50), Orange (/25), Red (/5) and a 1/1 Superfractor. Among the signers for the autographs are Clayton Kershaw, Cal Ripken Jr., Derek Jeter, Wade Boggs, Hank Aaron, Kris Bryant, Mike Trout and a number of other young stars and veterans.

These cards are sure to be a favorite with collectors so don’t delay place your order now for 2018 Topps Series One Baseball.
