Program Details

Topps National Baseball Card Day returns in 2018. Set for August 11, it’s a day to head out to your nearest participating card shop and get free baseball cards. As with past years, 2018 Topps National Baseball Card Day comes with its own exclusive set of cards.

2018 Topps National Baseball Card Day Program Info

Exact details of the promotion and the cards connected to it have not yet been announced. But the main part of it is that anyone can go to a participating shop and get a free pack of cards. For some, it’s a reason to go to the store they already frequent. For others, it might be an introduction (or reintroduction) to the world of baseball cards.

The free pack comes with six cards. Autographs are randomly inserted.

To complete the full 2018 Topps National Baseball Card Day set, collectors will have to make a qualifying purchase at a participating shop. Card #1, Aaron Judge, is available on August 11, like the packs. To get it, you have to buy $10 worth of Topps products. That said, you may want to check with your local shop first to see that they are involved.

Topps is making one change to the program to send collectors back to hobby shops a second time. On August 25, a special Rhys Hoskins will be made available. Like the Judge, it requires a $10 purchase.

Once again, Major League Baseball and the players are getting involved. Topps has baseball card giveaways scheduled for every baseball stadium this summer. All told, Topps estimates they will be giving away more than 1.2 million packs.

The dates vary from stadium to stadium, but many of them are around the actual 2018 National Baseball Card Day. MLB will also help promote the event and the industry with things like video ads to be played in stadiums beforehand.

This is the third year in a row for National Baseball Card Day.

    This is the third “consecutive” year for National Baseball Card Day. Topps and Upper Deck did smaller five card sets for a few prior years, with NBCD logos.

      @Mark – Every game I’ve been to with giveaways, you get them as you walk in.

  2. Kris 7 August, 2018 at 16:48

    Can you only get one pack per person? I have probably 50 insert cards from series 2 that say bring this card and get one pack?

    • Ryan Cracknell 9 August, 2018 at 12:09

      @Kris — It will likely vary from shop to shop, but it’s probably one per person.
