1984 Topps Traded Tiffany Baseball Checklist, Team Set Lists and Details
1984 Topps Traded Tiffany Baseball puts a more limited spin on the late-season box set. It’s the first such year for the Tiffany line, a run that would last through 1991 and result in some of the most valuable baseball cards of the 1980s.
1984 Topps Traded Tiffany Checklist Details
At a glance, 1984 Topps Traded Tiffany Baseball is the same as the regular Traded set. The checklist has the same players and the dual-photo-front design remains. But there are differences.
Tiffany cards are essentially like parallels. Instead of different colors or foil changes like we’re used to today, it’s all about the glossy front. That makes them smooth to the touch. It’s hard to tell from a photo, but when you have a regular 1984 Topps Traded and a Tiffany card both in hand, the difference is easier to spot. Both the regular and Tiffany Traded sets have similar white backs. Some Tiffany sets have easily distinguishable features, but this isn’t one of them.
It is believed that 10,000 sets of 1984 Topps Traded Tiffany Baseball were produced. In order to get them, dealers had to have ordered regular 1984 Topps Tiffany sets as well.
Like all Topps Tiffany sets, cards only came in special factory sets. You won’t find them in any packs. Here, it’s a small red box marked “Limited Edition Collectors ‘Traded’ Series.” Boxes also have a gold seal, although it’s possible they were carefully peeled and then reapplied. For those concerned about sealed sets, look closely at the edges of the sticker to see if there are any marks caused by lifting.
