2018 Topps Now Baseball is the third season for the on-demand line. And like it has from the beginning, it transforms big games, events, trades and milestones into cards within hours of it happening.
In essence, it tells the story of the season from start to finish–and probably even beyond in some regards.
2018 Topps Now Baseball cards are sold exclusively through the company’s website. While there can be exceptions for special occasions, the vast majority are available for just 24 hours. The cost is $9.99 for a single card and discounted rates for orders of five, ten and 20 of the same card. Some dealers use these bulk discounts to offer cards immediately on eBay as well.
Once the initial sale time ends, cards are produced. Topps confirms print runs usually within a day or two.
In addition to the regular cards, collectors can also expect to see some 2018 Topps Now Baseball autographs and memorabilia cards pop up for major events. These come in limited numbers and can often sell out very quickly.
Like last year, 2018 Topps Now Baseball kicked off at Spring Training with some specially numbered cards. They also have a full range of Road to Opening Day team sets.
2018 Topps Now Baseball Checklist
We’ll be updating this list throughout the season including details on special sets. Print runs will be added as they’re announced.
