2017 Topps Inception Baseball Pivots the Brand from Prospects to Rookies and Veterans

Share:

Baseball has had Bowman Inception for a few years now. But like other Bowman products, the focus has been primarily on prospects. 2017 Topps Inception Baseball sees that focus shift a little. There’s still the similar look and attention to autographs but the checklist is centered on veterans and rookies rather than those working their way up through the minors.

2017 Topps Inception Baseball Header

Like Bowman Inception, each box has just one pack. In it is either an autograph or an autographed relic card.

Base Set

2017 Topps Inception Baseball does have a base set. This is another shift from past Bowman versions. It features 100 current players with an emphasis on the game’s younger stars. Four base cards are in every box.

Joining them are two numbered parallels from a list that includes Green, Purple (/15), Magenta (/99), Red (/75), Orange (/50), Blue (/25), Printing Plates and Inception (1/1). Yes, that makes the toughest base parallels Topps Inception Inception cards.

Autographs

Base Rookie and Emerging Stars Autographs make up the bulk of the signed content in 2017 Topps Inception Baseball. These are signed on-card. Like the base set, young players get the spotlight.

Parallels come in Magenta (/99), Red (/75), Orange (/50), Blue (/25) and Inception (1/1).

The product has a couple of additional signature inserts. Inception Silver Signings are hard-signed using silver ink. They look similar to the Bowman Black Autographs from a couple of years ago. These are a case hit with all versions being numbered including the Gold and Gold Inscription (1/1) parallels.

Inception Legendary Debut Autographs show players from early in their career. Also signed on-card, all are numbered. Parallels come in Orange (/10), Blue (/5) and Inception (1/1).

Autographed Relics

Inception Autograph Relic cards fall approximately 1:4 boxes. The jersey swatch is on the large side and all come numbered. Parallels all have premium swatches: Magenta Patch, Red Patch, Orange Patch, Blue Button and Inception Majestic Logo.

Inception Autographed Jumbo Patch cards are another case hit. As the name suggests, the patch piece is big. The design is somewhat similar to the Silhouette cards from Panini. Parallels are available in Orange, Blue and Inception (1/1).

2017 Topps Inception Baseball has a few premium autographed relic book cards, although they’re extremely tough. These include Inception Autograph Team Logo Patch Books (/2), Inception Autograph Letter Patch Books (/2), Inception Autograph Laundry Tag Books (/2) and Inception Autograph MLB Silhouetted Batter Logo Patch Book (1/1).

It is worth noting that it appears that the focus of the jersey and patch cards in 2017 Topps Inception Baseball is on player-worn gear versus game-used items.

    Good. Let’s keep pivoting towards more and more veterans on some of these higher value brands. I like being able to look at my cards 5-10 years later and see recognizable major leaguers, especially if those cards cost serious money. Rookies, prospects, and retired players have been so overused that all of them are less exciting to me. Getting an auto or nice patch from an actual active all-star is thrilling and seemingly rare. Too rare.

  2. Kevin Robinson 29 November, 2016 at 11:13

    Bowman Inception was one of my favorite sets, and now it’s just another mid-range, thick card set with an auto or relic per box. Isn’t this what 5-Star was about 3-4 years ago?

    Oh well, I guess I won’t have to buy any of this next year.

  3. Simon 13 May, 2017 at 10:06

    Look at that checklist. You could buy a case of this stuff and be lucky to get one decent player. No thanks.

  4. Scott Newton 18 May, 2017 at 16:00

    If there ever was a product that proved you could care less about the Blue Jays this is it. Way to alienate an entire country Topps. You couldn’t throw us a bone and at least have some Donaldson autos? Brutal.

    • Ryan Cracknell 18 May, 2017 at 16:06

      As a fellow Canadian, I feel ya, but this product is focused primarily on younger players and rookies. The Jays have some of those, but not as many as some other teams. The checklist has some long-time vet autos but not a lot as a whole.

  5. Robert B.Jones 20 May, 2017 at 09:40

    Cannot believe there is NOT 1 single TB Ray
    in the line-up. Was this done on purpose???
    or there jus not good enough?

    • Ryan Cracknell 22 May, 2017 at 11:04

      There are three Rays on the checklist (still not a lot, but something):

      Base 44 Chris Archer
      Base 97 Blake Snell

    She many dud hits in this product. I don’t think a box should be more than 30$ but I know they will sell for 60$ and higher.

  7. Will woolsey 27 May, 2017 at 10:20

    I like this product. But it could be that i got a Bryce Harper redemption #/5. Can’t find a value on it. And I got a nice urias double patch auto to.

    Check out the Holy Grail I just pulled from this “dud” product: Andrew Benintendi Autograph MLB Logo Man Patch Book 1/1.
