2016 Topps Anthology Series 1 Baseball Cards

By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

2016 Topps Anthology Series 1 Baseball offers a chronological look at Topps Baseball through the years. The online-exclusive box set includes one card from each of its first 66 years — 1951 through 2016.

For the majority of the cards in the set, it’s the most iconic one. However, this isn’t always the case. Some players appear on non-rookies at different parts of their career. This balances things out for years where there are multiple big-name rookies or key cards.

A couple of players are absent from 2016 Topps Anthology Series 1 Baseball. The most noticeable is Mickey Mantle, arguably the face of Topps baseball cards. However, Mickey Mantle doesn’t currently have a card deal. That makes it tough to include the 1952 Topps Mantle, or any other for that matter.

Cards in the set are over-sized, measuring 5 x 7. The standard version of the set is numbered to 499 and costs $99.99. Silver has 49 copies and costs $149.99 while a Gold version numbered to 10 runs $499.99.

In addition to the box set, the entire series has been printed as a poster. This also has regular ($49.99), Silver (/49, $99.99) and Gold (/10, $199.99) versions.

    For the starting price of $99, I think you could buy a real base card from every year for less than that (or if you are into reprints, you can buy one iconic reprint for each year from some of the billions of reprint inserts that topps flagship has given us in recent years).

    I’m afraid topps is killing the prestige of their history with each overdone reprint item they release.

    I’ll echo the previous comments… And add this. Where the heck is Boggs. The man put up a 3,ooo Hit HOF career, and you got four years of guys that won’t even sniff the HOF from Boggs years taking up space.

    But, I’m a Boggs collector, so I could be biased.

      Likely a contract issue. If they don’t have him signed to a deal, they can’t use him (like Mantle for 1952).
