2018 Baseball Cards: Who Made Them

Topps continued to hold an exclusive deal with Major League Baseball in 2018. That meant that they were the only company that could put out cards of players in MLB uniforms and use the league’s logos and marks. Panini has a deal with the MLBPA, which means they can make sets with current and retired players, just not with any MLB marks.

Other license holders include Topps with Minor League Baseball, Panini with USA Baseball and Mickey Mantle’s estate, and Leaf with the Perfect Game Showcase.

2018 Baseball Cards Overview

The 2018 baseball card season kicked off with the release of 2018 Topps Series 1 Baseball on January 31.

Not all 2018 baseball cards were found in hobby shops. Some releases come out in specific forms like retail exclusives, online-only products and print-on-demand releases like 2018 Topps Now and the Topps Living Set.

Perhaps the defining feature of the 2018 baseball cards lineup is the rookie class. It’s one of the deepest in recent history. Ronald Acuna Jr., Juan Soto and Shohei Ohtani are among the headliners with a tier of potential perennial All-Stars sitting just below with Gleyber Torres, Rafael Devers and more.
