2016 Topps Update Baseball Box Set Mock-Up

By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

No, 2016 Topps Update Series Baseball is not returning to those brightly colored factory sets. Sorry, if it got more than nostalgia running for a second. But what the product does do, like old-school Topps Traded, is offer players in new uniforms and rookies who made their debuts too late for the 2016 Topps Series 2 Baseball checklist. It also has a mix of new and ongoing inserts as well as some Update Series continuity of its own in the form of All-Star-themed memorabilia cards.

Base Set

2016 TU 292 Aledmys Diaz

The 2016 Topps Update Series Baseball base set has 300 cards. This is down significantly from the 400 cards that made up the 2015 set. It’s also 50 cards smaller than both the Series 1 and Series 2 sets. Still, it’s enough to capture key rookie debuts from 2016 as well as key players finding themselves in new uniforms. 2016 All-Star Game and Home Run Derby participants also figure into the base set.

Parallels start with the moderately easy-to-pull Rainbow Foil (1:10 packs) and Gold (/2016). On the tougher side are Black (/64), Pink (/50), Printing Plates, Platinum (1/1) and Silver Frame (1/1). Black, Silver Frame and Printing Plates are all exclusive to hobby and hobby jumbo packs. On the retail side, Purple cards return to Toys ‘R’ Us packs.

Variations come in a couple of forms. A total of 25 rookie have photo variations with candid shots. There are also All-Star Photo Variations that are much tougher to pull.

Autographs and Memorabilia Cards

2016 Topps Update Series Baseball All-Star Stitches Manny Machado

The base set isn’t the only place where the 2016 All-Star Game in San Diego is prominent in 2016 Topps Update Series Baseball. All-Star Stitches and its various versions make up a significant portion of the hits in the product.

As it has been for years, All-Star Stitches comes with swatches from All-Star workout jerseys. Parallels for the basic cards comes in Gold (/50) and Platinum (1/1).

All-Star Stitches Duals and Triples mix up different combinations of players from the Mid-Summer Classic. Both of these are numbered to 25. The triple-swatch cards can only be found in hobby and hobby jumbo packs.

On the premium side are All-Star Jumbo Patches (/6), All-Star Stitches Autographed Relics (/25) and All-Star Jumbo Patches Autographs (/6). Both styles of jumbo patch cards can’t be found in retail packs.

Own the Name relics return for another year. These have a letter from the nameplate from the back of a game-used jersey. Although each is a one-of-one, players will have multiple cards as they spell out their last name.

2016 Topps Update Series Baseball has a couple of manufactured relic sets as well.

500 Home Run Club Same cards have a stamp issued the year they hit their milestone homer.

3,000 Hits Club Medallions come with a specially designed coin embedded in them. Parallels come in Gold (/25), Platinum (/10) and Platinum Autograph (/10).

For those looking for additional signatures, there’s Scouting Report Autographs. These cards combine ink and advanced analytics.

Inserts

2016 Topps Update Series Baseball First Pitch Brady Kahle

Inserts are highlighted by the first-pack inserted Fire cards for baseball. After debuting as a standalone set in football a couple of years ago, Fire arrived in baseball as online-exclusive prints in 2015. Now the cards, which have standout designs by digital artist Tyson Beck, are getting a more traditional release. These land 1:8 packs.

Chasing 3000 (1:8) carries on from Series 2, highlighting key hits for Ichiro as the future Hall of Famer approached the major milestone.

Continuing with a similar theme is 3000 Hits Club (1:6), which spotlights players who have already made it.

First Pitch (1:6) comes back for a third round of celebrity and other notables throwing out the ceremonial toss. This time, they come from the 2016 season. In addition to the regular First Pitch cards, there are relic versions that come with a ticket stub from the featured game embedded in them.

2016 has seen Topps partner with several other companies. There was the Marketside Pizza cards found at Walmart. Then Topps worked with New Era on some limited edition Bryce Harper cards. 2016 Topps Update Series Baseball features Team Franklin (1:8), an insert that highlights players who are sponsored by the batting glove company. This is the second set of Franklin inserts in 2016 Topps products. 2016 Topps The Mint has cards with game-used batting gloves made by the company.

Select players in all of the basic inserts except for First Pitch have autographed versions as well. Fire, Team Franklin and 3000 Hits Club Autographs are all numbered to 25. Chasing 3000 Ichiro autographs are each one-of-ones.

500 Futures is exclusive to retail. These carry a theme of players who might reach the 500 home run milestone over the course of their careers. Parallels come in Silver and Gold. There are also medallion versions, autographs and relics for select players.

Target and Walmart each have their own group of rookie inserts where players are featured on card designs from their birth years.

    They cut the base set from 400 to 300 but still found the room to put in the superfluous “Rookie Debut” cards along with regular base cards? I enjoyed the fact that the set was bumped to 400 last year because a lot of lesser-known guys were able to get cards. But I guess collectors like me lose out to the star collectors once again. Can’t wait for the 50 “new” Harpers, Bryants, and Trouts in this set.

    I agree JD……since Topps has an exclusive, they sb mandated to produce at least one card of every player on the Opening Day roster + Rookie call ups + traded players. Cut back on an insert set or two of the older players whose picture has been used to death.

    I myself always like update and the Fire cards look awesome….I’m down for a couple of boxes plus some manufactured relics.

    I always put together the Topps Update set each year, so I got excited when I saw the old factory boxed set at the top. Any idea as to if they will be making a Chrome version, and if so if it will be in the “holiday mega boxes” that are retail exclusives.

    Nothing has been announced as far as Chrome Update. It seems to have been successful in its current format so I suspect that will likely continue.

    Yeah update is a very fun set to collect as always with all the new rookies and all star cards

    I agree with the first 2, please Topps get rid of the “rookie debut” cards. While I like having all star cards I wish they would bring back the old style all star subset with a different design. Either way it is a cool set to put together.

    Do away with the all-star cards and home run derby cards and the rookie debuts as has been already posted.

    Instead, starting with 2017 flagship series 1 and 2, put in the bio box the players MLB debut date (and even highlight some of the stats of that debut), and find a space on the card back for resume info such as “All-Star in xxxxx, xxxx, xxxx”, “xxxx ROY”, “xxxx ERA leader”, “xxxx Batting Crown”, etc. so you can eliminate the wasteful cards for all-star, league leaders, etc. and put in more cards of people who haven’t had an official Topps RC yet or people who don’t get cards very often like middle relievers, DH, or excellent pinch hitters.

    Reducing the set size eliminates too many players from having a card. We don’t need the all star, combo cards, etc. Placing 2 rookies on a combo card means that neither player has a real card. How I miss the days when there was competition in this hobby.
