2017 Topps Pro Debut Variation Short Prints Gallery, Tim Tebow’s First MiLB Card

Share:

For the most part, the 2017 Topps Pro Debut variations short prints offer up the traditional second-photo alternate. But one of the cards isn’t a variation. Rather, it’s the first MiLB-licensed Tim Tebow baseball card.

2017-Topps-Pro-Debut-Variations-Header

Whether it’s a variation or a short print, 2017 Topps Pro Debut Baseball has ten of them total. It’s not a huge number, but it’s also not a huge base checklist to begin with.

For nine of these, they’re standard variations. Most flip between a batting and a fielding photo. For Tebow, who is also numbered differently on the back, it’s a standalone card that’s inserted at the longer variation odds (1:101 packs combined).

Tebow has appeared on baseball cards from both Panini and Leaf, but this is the first one that’s in an official MiLB uniform. It’s likely that this will be one of the hottest cards in the product. In fact, the first one to sell on eBay went quickly for $200. It remains to be seen where it will settle at (probably less than the initial sale), though, and whether this is an early outlier or a trend.

Code Confirmation

Looking for a way to confirm whether you have a 2017 Topps Pro Debut variation without having to memorize photos? The code method is in play.

As is the case with a lot of Topps sets, flip to the back and look to the fine print. At the end of the blurb, there’s a code. It’s not intended to be a tool for collectors, but it can make it easy to confirm whether you have a variation or not.

Base cards end in 204. The code for variation short prints finishes with 214. This includes the Tim Tebow SP card as well.

    Props to Topps for not making the gimmick Tebow a SP within the base set but rather an extra SP so us base set collectors can have a complete base set.

    I enjoy the MATERIAL cards of minor league stadiums pieces of bases, , pitching mounds, etc. Very nice touch! But only 3 numbered cards in 4 boxes is a little cheap.
