Series 1 will include Wander Franco rookie cards, and the jumbo boxes have three hits on average, with at least one autograph, according to Topps. The jumbo boxes have ten packs with 46 cards and two silver packs.
Topps says the silver packs include MLB vets, rookies, and retired greats on chrome cards. Collectors should look for numbered autos and parallels in those packs.
