2016 Topps Apex Soccer Checklist and Details

Share:

2016 Topps Apex Soccer is a little bit wild with its designs. But what will stand out even more for some collectors is the fact that this is the first Topps MLS product to include on-card autograph.

Like its debut release in 2015, each 2016 Topps Apex Soccer hobby box is packaged as a pair of mini-boxes. These have 32 cards each. A master box has a pair of autographs and a Crest Jumbo Relic.

Base Set

2016 Topps Apex Base Drogba

2016 Topps Apex Soccer has a 100 base cards. It’s on the small side so expect to find top players, key rookies and not much else. Jack Harrison, the first pick in the 2016 Superdraft is among those making the cut.

Cards have a colorful and textured look. Plenty of lines, patterns and color splashes make it bolder than a lot of other sports card sets.

Hobby packs have four types of parallels, all of which are serial numbered: Green, Red (/5), Printing Plates and Purple (1/1). Red parallels are exclusive to hobby.

Expanding on the base set slightly are ten Rookie Short Prints that are numbered 101-110 on the checklist.

Inserts

2016 Topps Apex Global Influence

2016 Topps Apex Soccer has a pair of regular inserts as well. Global Influence looks at players who have come to MLS from other parts of the world. These also have signed versions.

Golazo! is an insert centering the emotional side of soccer. Parallels come in Green, Red (/5), Printing Plates and Purple (1/1).

Autographs

2016 Topps Apex Base Autograph

While 2016 Topps Apex Soccer does have some on-card autographs, it’s not the case for most of the signed cards. Base Autographs, which use the same general design as the base set, still have stickers. Parallels are Green, hobby-only Red (/5) and Purple (1/1).

The hard-signed content comes in the form of 2016 All-Star Autographs. The checklist is limited to MLS players who played against Arsenal in July, 2015.

Match Day Die-Cut Auto Relics are a case hit and only in hobby packs. These combine a die-cut design, sticker autograph and a larger-than-normal swatch. Red (/5) and Purple (1/1) versions make up the parallels.

2016 Topps Apex Soccer also has randomly inserted Dual Autographs.

Relics

2016 Topps Apex Crest Jumbo Relics Collar

Crest Jumbo Relics are the only unsigned memorabilia cards in 2016 Topps Apex Soccer but they come in many forms. All are serial numbered, even the base versions.

Although parallels have only two colors (plus Printing Plates), each has a few different styles. Red Collar parallels come with a premium piece from the top part of the jersey. In addition to these are Red Patch (/5) versions.

Purple parallels come in three versions. Each has a distinct patch and each is a one-of-one. Patch pieces include multi-color team logos from the collar, the ADIDAS logo and the MLS Shield from the backs of jerseys.

Printing Plates all have multi-color swatches.
