2016 Topps Now Election Trading Cards Checklist, Print Runs and Details


The Presidential Election gave us plenty of soundbites and a shocking finish. You know what else it’s provided? Trading cards. 2016 Topps Now Election cards follow in the footsteps of their other print-on-demand products, offering cards of Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and others for just 24 hours.

14 Donald Trump

The first three cards all center on their first debate. Others followed for ensuing debates as well as Trump becoming the President-elect.

Each card is available individually through the Topps site. Single cards are $9.99 each. Those looking for bulk discounts can find them in lots of five ($29.99), ten ($49.99) and 20 ($79.99). The three debate cards were also sold as a lot for $24.99, providing a discount of about $5 from ordering individually.

After the initial sales window, Topps declares them sold out. Only ordered cards are printed and print runs are released.

Leaf also produced a card for the first election as part of their ongoing Leaf Live set, although it was put up for sale before the debate started and doesn’t use images from the event. On the night of the debate, Topps also released Garbage Pail Kids cards sending up the election. On top of those, multiple sets of Decision 2016 trading cards were released.

    Is Topps kidding? Where is the secondary market for this? (I’m not even sure the primary market is very substantial.)

    I can’t find the Topps Now Election cards on their site. Did they pull it without releasing print runs?
    And no, Sliepka is not working with Topps on that. He is working on Decision 2016 Series 2.

    pass on the expensive topps now cards. I’m waiting to see if Topps will release a Trump set of cards from boyhood to president like they did with Obama in 2009.
