Within minutes of Kris Bryant tossing Michael Martinez’s slow roller to Anthony Rizzo for the final out, Topps started unrolling their Chicago Cubs 2016 World Series baseball cards. The 2016 Topps Now Chicago Cubs World Series Championship Team Sets come in a couple of different forms, one of which has an autograph.

Offered for one week through the Topps website, the bulk of the content comes in the form of a 15-card team set. The checklist consists of 14 player cards plus an additional one team card. These cards are separate from the 2016 Topps Now Postseason set.

The basic 2016 Topps Now Chicago Cubs World Series Championship Team Set has just the 15 cards. The cost $49.99. Lots of ten sets are $399.99.

A premium version that comes with the team set plus a randomly inserted autograph is $149.99. Autograph sets have no bulk discount.

The autograph checklist has eight different players including Kris Bryant, Kyle Schwarber, Anthony Rizzo and Javier Baez. Some are more common than others but not exceptionally. In addition to the regular autographs are parallels numbered to 199, 99, 49, 25, 10 and 1.

Final print runs for the 2016 Topps Now Chicago Cubs World Series Championship set won’t be determined until sales close. Cards will be printed to order.

      They’re essentially the same card but with a different colored background and a serial number. So the same picture but rarer than the normal card.

    Kyle Schwarber – 1:5

    Does this mean you have a 1 in 5 cards chance of getting Kyle Schwarber’s autograph in this set?

    Am I the only one who has one of the sentences from Rizzo’s card (ws-3) printed on the back of the Zobrist card (ws-7)? Does this make it worth more? And I’m glad that for each player, ‘x played an instrumental role…’ Pretty lame? Or am I somehow missing the ‘cool’ factor of owning these cards?

    Looks like Topps did not follow through and meet the promised odds on the Rizzo autos. There have no almost none available compared to all other players. Plus, only /49, /25, and /10 have surfaced.
