2018 Topps MLS Variations Gallery

Share:

2018 Topps MLS Variations are out there. They might not be as plentiful or generate as much buzz as their flagship baseball counterparts, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be watching for them when you’re busting packs.

These 2018 Topps MLS short prints carry the same design as the base set but have a different photo. So it’s pretty easy for one to slip by.

The checklist has a total of 14 cards highlighting some of the top MLS stars. A couple come from the 24 Under 24 subset. Variations for these don’t have the 24 Under 24 logo on the front like the base versions.

You can use the back of the card to confirm whether you have a 2018 Topps MLS Variation short print. At the end of the fine print, there’s a code. Regular base cards end in 615. Variation SSP cards end in 625.
