2016 Topps Legacies of Baseball Details
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 Vault Metals are found one per pack with three types of parallels — Purple Logo (/50), Red (/5) and 1/1 Black — for all 50 cards. These showcase Topps photos on a metal card. Base versions are numbered to 135.
Collectors can expect one additional insert per pack from Lasting Imprints (all-time greats) or Imminent Arrivals (top rookies). These have Purple (/50), Red (/5) and 1/1 Black parallels as well as autographed versions. Base versions have no more than 99 copies each.
2016 Topps Legacies of Baseball Autographs
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.
