2016 Topps Santa Claus Holiday Set Checklist and Details


Even Santa’s going online exclusive. The 2016 Topps Santa Claus Holiday Set is a tribute to the chimney magician and a couple of his friends.

2016 Topps Santa A

Each set includes a full nine-card base set plus one of eight different autograph parallels.

Similar to the 2007 Topps Santa Claus set, cards use past Topps designs. Think of it as a Christmas-themed version of Topps Archives. The majority are from before 1980 although they do go up to 2016.

Although Santa is the namesake of the set, he’s not alone on the checklist. Mrs. Claus, a reindeer and an an elf who curiously looks like he belongs on a shelf are also present.

All of the base cards except the reindeer have an “autographed” version (hoofs make holding a pen difficult).

Individual 2016 Topps Santa Claus Holiday sets are $19.99 on the Topps website. Lots of three sets are $49.99.

    As a Christmas nerd, I already ordered. These look to be way better than the ones Topps did like 10 years ago.

    These would be fun for my son’s Elf on the Shelf to bring him when he arrives next week. Especially the Elf “autographed” card. :)
