1951 Topps by Blake Jamieson Baseball Checklist and Details


It might not get as much love and attention as the 1952 set but 1951 Topps Baseball is still an important release. It has been reinterpreted a few times in recent years, but nothing like 1951 Topps by Blake Jamieson.

The online release takes the foundation of the 70-year-old set and flips it with an artistic spin. Players, a mix of past and present stars, are all painted by Jamieson who many collectors got to know through his work in Topps Project 2020. Mimicking the original cards, each measures 2″ by 2 5/8″.

Sold through the Topps website, the full set arrives in four waves. Each is available for one week. Once complete the full set will have 52 cards, 13 per wave. Each mini box, which costs $19.99, has all 13 of that wave’s cards. Boxes will also be marked on the outside so it’ll be easy to identify sealed product on the secondary market.

Parallels are randomly inserted: Blue Back (/51), Green Back (/25), Black and White Player Photo (/10), Wrapper Back (/5) and Gold Back (1/1).

There’s also a rare Artist Card with a portrait of Jamieson. These are limited to 100 copies.

Select players have autographs as well. However, these aren’t available in packs. Rather, they’re sold directly by Topps.

      @Randy – Multiple sets each year, different themes, styles of sets. Yes, some do. Like everything else, not for everyone.
