Topps Supreme is coming to the United States
After a Japan-only MLB release last year, Topps announced on Friday that Supreme is coming soon, bringing its simple high-end approach to collectors in this country when 2014 Topps Supreme arrives on Oct. 8.
With just two autographed cards per box and 20 boxes per case, this is a high-end brand.
All autographs in the product will be numbered to 50 or fewer copies with dual- and triple-auto cards among the offerings along with jumbo patch autographed Relic book and “a multitude of 1/1s” according to the company. The autographs will be a mix of current veterans and retired stars with Simply Supreme autos, Supreme Styling autos and falling one per case will be Supreme Scope auto Relics.
Autographs will have nine parallels — all will be serial-numbered but most quantities were not announced. There will be Green, Sepia, Purple, Blue, Orange (/15), Red (/10), Black (/5) and 1/1 Supreme and printing plate parallels.
Supreme Scope auto Relics will be numbered (volume not announced) with Patch parallels limited to 10 and 1/1 Supreme Patch cards to chase as well. Auto Patch Relics will be numbered to 25 with Platinum parallels limited to five and 1/1 Supreme versions, too.
Dual auto jumbo patch Relic booklets will pair players and be limited to just 10 copies.
