2016 Topps Dynasty Baseball Checklist Gets More Colorful


The first two sets of Topps Dynasty Baseball had color but much of it came from the patches found on the majority of the cards. 2016 Topps Dynasty Baseball keeps a similar configuration but the design has been given a colorful and textured overhaul.

Once again, boxes come with just one card numbered to 10 or less. Everything is either an autographed memorabilia card or a cut signature. Needless to say, it remains at the top of Topps’ high-end portfolio.

The biggest change that collectors will notice about 2016 Topps Dynasty Baseball is the general design. The brand’s 2014 debut was largely black with a single-color image of the player. 2015 switched to white but the one-tone images remained. This time around, players get a more traditional full-color shot. The card stock is done on a textured cotton and also includes some embossing. It’s doubtful many of the cards will actually be handled much, though, as they come encased.

Autographed Patch cards have roughly the same sized piece of game-used memorabilia as before. Base versions are numbered to 10 while parallels are limited to 5 and 1.

New On This Day Autographed Patch cards (/5) have swatches that can be tracked by MLB Authentication. Similar to the memorabilia cards in Topps Strata Baseball, these come with a numbered hologram that is attached to a database and the swatch can be tracked to a specific game.

For some retired stars where patch swatches might not be available, they’re featured on Autographed Dual Relic Greats. Like autographed patch cards, signatures are done on-card. These are numbered to 5 with a 1/1 parallel.

2016 Topps Dynasty Baseball has as many as 100 Cut Signature cards. All are one-of-ones. No more than ten Dual Relic Legend Cut Signature cards are included in the product. These pair the autograph with a couple of pieces of memorabilia.

    Unfortunately this is a Topps product, which means that nothing is guaranteed as being anything from anywhere.

    This MIGHT be the only product they produce without “Manufactured Relics”. At least as far as anyone knows…

      For the handful of On This Day patches, you’ll be able to look up exactly what game the piece was from on the MLB website.

    Honestly, for the cut sigs, as long as the signatures are real I don’t care that much about the memorabilia pieces. The problem is, there is zero chance I can afford the ones I’d like to get.

    Even the Spahn piece, and you can get his autograph for under $20 for an on card cert autograph. Same with the Musial.

    I’d love a Clemente, Ruth or Cobb or Jackie.
    If any of them go for under $1000 I’d be surprised.

    Purchased 2 schwarber cards numbered to 5. To only find out there are more of the same cards out there with different pieces of jerseys and a different pic out there numbered to 5. I thought there were only 5 cards produced like that. But it turns out there are more with the same numbers.

      This has been the case since Dynasty debuted a couple of years ago. The checklist we have posted here mentions that as well.
