First look: 2013 Topps Mini baseball cards (with full final checklist; updated with images)

2013ToppsMini2

By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

The Minis are back.

Topps unveiled the first glimpses at its second online-exclusive product of the year to Beckett Media on Thursday as it’s readying 2013 Topps Mini for release with its first public arrival at the National Sports Collectors Convention starting on July 31 in suburban Chicago.

While the cards inside the packs of this one are small — just 2 1/4 by 3 1/8 inches — versions of the cards you have already seen, there’s one big inclusion among those on the autograph checklist.

That’s Los Angeles Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig. It will be his first MLB autograph to arrive live into packs when this one arrives. (His other autographed cards from Topps have been redemptions.)

As with the standard-card release, there are 660 cards to be found in this one — this time, all under one type of wrapper — but there will be just one insert set (Chasing History), one autograph set and one Relic set. It also should have parallels and printing plates as last year’s did.

There will be 10 cards per pack and one autograph or Relic found in every 24-pack box. Boxes will be $52.99 on the site and $50 at the show.

The autograph checklist includes 35 players, a mix of stars from the past and present. Joining Puig are Sandy Koufax, Nolan Ryan, Mike Trout, Yu Darvish, Cal Ripken Jr., Buster Posey and even the late Duke Snider and Johnny Podres. 

Over on the 50-card Relics checklist, notables include Ken Griffey Jr., Justin Verlander, Mike Mussina, Fred McGriff, Posey and Alex Rodriguez. It’s a list that includes many younger players from today.

We’ll have more details on this one soon.

I have a question. So when will they make binders, sheets, penny sleeves and top loaders for the 75 minis, and last year and this years mini cards? Lil help Chris. Thanks.

They won’t make them for one product. They will fit in standard nine-pockets, too. There would need to be a lot more interest/demand first.

@BallCard_Blog

I will definitely be buying if they are as short printed as last year.

Will Topps be giving away the 5 card promo pack with purchase at the National?

Any chance Puig slips into the base set as an SP?

Is Topps doing the 5 card promo pack again this year at the National with purchase?

My gut feeling says no on base card.

We’ll know more about promo plans soon.

I’m with Rick on this one. I think Topps would do well to work with Ultra-Pro for a package that includes a box of Minis, an album and enough sheets to hold 1/3 of a set (since it would take at least 3 boxes to complete a set). Topps would make money, Ultra Pro would make money, and collectors would be happy. I can’t believe that there isn’t enough demand for sheets (at least) even if there isn’t enough demand for top loaders, penny sleeves, etc. Especially since Topps is regularly including minis in their flagship.

JASON K, thank you so much for your thoughts. I agree one hundred percent with you. I have the 75 mini set and then some. Considering it is one of the most popular sets of the 70’s I thought they would have made them already. And now the popularity of this year and last years minis! It is time Ultra Pro and topps. Get this done!!!!

Guess what Chris,I think there will be a Puig #662,just like they added Harper to last years set.In fact you can bet on it.

Not everyone puts every card they get in a plastic sheet, either. If I’m collecting a full 660-card set I tend to just use cardboard trading card boxes, which work just fine, cost much less, and take up less space.

Harper was an SP in last year’s regular set and a regular card in the mini set.

Paul Angily: And some people do. So because you and others put them in boxes means they can’t make the products other want??????????????

Would be more interested if PUIG was a regular card, like Harper was last year.

Mini Madness!

Soon all Topps products will have minis…….If they flood the market with to many minis they won’t be fun any more.

But this looks Good. I’m in.

Peace

I am not sure what to think about these mini’s. I would like to get some idea of a print run before making a decision. Anyone have info on last years print run?

Also Chris this wasn’t “Topps first online-exclusive product of the year”. Remember they offered Turkey Red baseball and football and an online-exclusive.

By pack odds and inserts last year, many of us figured out somewhere in the neighborhood of 2000-2400 per regular card.

Their are mini’s in every sport now & several years of the in some products. I also have several boxes of Mid 80’s Topps & Fleer, plus a few dozen Fleer Boxed Mini Sets. I have several boxes of mid to late 80’s of Hockey Mini’s which have some expensive cards (they could also be called Stickers). My point, I will not touch any of it nor sell any cause there is no decent way to protect these “Cards/Mini’s”. I’d say the demand of maybe over 10,000 + others like myself would make any product being discussed here extremely profitable, even if the product costs a bit more than standard size products. Isn’t it about time???

A final thought. I see some of ya talking about an SP Puig added to the checklist. My opinion is I am sick of SP’s in what should be the ultimate baseball set of simplicity…. Topps base set. Too many SP’s, far too many parallels & far too many sets/subsets of prospects. No variety to choose from. Same products every year. The hobby needs to give companies like Upper Deck & Fleer or Donruss a full License. Thats when collecting was great. 1989 & 2007 are great example of years for great products via competition for Baseball. I hate the idea behind Bowman. Because of giving 1st or RC’s to players still in diapers, I have no clue what a RC is anymore. I will not even start on SP’s needed to complete basic sets. BLAH! Ty for reading my rant, guess I miss the simplicity of card collecting thru the mid 80’s. Ya had variety & knew a RC when ya opened a pack. Comments are welcome :)

Puig sticker auto = no thanks…

Bought them last year and they were okay. Nothing spectacular. Mini versions of the same ol’ same ol’ . If the design and/or the photos were different than Topps Series 1 & 2 and Opening Day, that would be more exciting. Instead it’s just a 3rd repetitive reprinting of the same cards.
The only exciting thing last year was that they changed the design of the mini relic and mini auto, but it basically comes down to getting one new auto or relic for $50 a piece …. no thanks. I know I would never be lucky enough to get a Puig auto, but knowing how my typical box break works, I’m guaranteed to get a $3 relic card. :) again … no thanks.

I bought these last year. I think 2 boxes at National and 2 online. I really liked them, Here’s why.. Not the sticker auto’s or very boring relics but the gold and platinum cards. Gold numbered to 61, and platinum to 5! They actually sold well on ebay and i kept all my autos and relics and sold just a few of the parallels for good money.
Of course i considered the gold and platinum’s as hits, not just the autos and relics.

For $50 bucks you got about 4 hits (hits = relic or auto & 3 or more cards #’d to 5 or 61) per box, pretty good compared to every other topps products.

Ill get a few again this year, why not…

I think this is a great product. I love the mini look and looks like Heyward is in it :) it would be a nice rainbow to put together. But I plan on buying a box, not neccessarily for the hits but for the fun and the color you get in the box. Can’t beat $50 for a 24 pack hobby box!!! Thanks for the post Chris

To those who guaranteed a Puig Base/SP/SSP card being in this product…

Well, WHERE IS IT? :-)
