A new brand of baseball cards is on the horizon for 2016 and it’s one that celebrates the stars of the past as well as today. It’s 2016 Topps Legacies of Baseball, a high-end brand that arrives with two autographed cards in every pack. It’s a baseball version of Valor with a touch of Fire, which we have seen in other sports in recent years.

The autograph lineup includes on-card signatures and include Tradition autos. These are cards of players who did things “the right way” according to the company — along with Loyalty, Tenacity and Exhilaration autos. Loyalty are for players who mostly played for one team. Tenacity focuses on attitude and Exhilaration looks at young stars. All themes come with serial numbers as well as Green (/99), Purple (/50), Red (/5) and 1/1 Black parallels.

    The license still prohibits “legacies” to a small percentage of retired players. This set looks like Tier One.

    I feel like I have seen that Wade Boggs picture before. Curious, are they recycling old photos?

      The image in the mock-up was used for 1991 Topps also. Possible it could change by the time the product comes out but it’s common for images to be reused, particularly retired players.

    Too many sets like these… Tier One, Dynasty, Supreme, why? They can’t even get tribute right and Topps has been making that set for 15 years.
