2018 Topps Baseball Silver Packs – Checklist, How to Get Them and Program Details

Share:

2018 Topps Baseball Silver Packs are a bonus for collectors buying 2018 Topps Series 1, 2018 Topps Series 2 and 2018 Topps Update hobby boxes. The cards are an added incentive, providing exclusive cards not available anywhere else.

2018 Topps 1983 Silver Packs Cody Bellinger

Special 1983 Topps Silver Pack cards are done in chrome. This makes different from the 1983 Topps inserts found in regular packs. The Series 1 Silver Pack versions also have a patterned background similar to last year’s cards to make them quickly recognizable. For Series 2, the background patterns give way to more traditional Refractors.

For Series 1, the checklist has 50 cards covering superstars, rookies and some big-name retired players. Refractor parallels come in Blue (/150), Green (/99), Purple (/75), Gold (/50), Orange (/25), Red (/5) and Superfractors (1/1).

Autographs are also randomly inserted. A total of 40 players have signatures in the bonus packs. Parallels for these include Orange Refractors (/25), Red Refractors (/5) and Superfractors (1/1).

This is the second year for the program. 2017 Topps Silver Packs delivered special 1987 Topps Chrome cards. Rather than keeping with the 30th anniversary theme, and moving ahead to 1988, they’re jumping backwards. Although 1988 has its fans, 1983 Topps Baseball is considered by many to not only be one of the most attractive sets of the decade but all-time.

How to Get 2018 Topps Baseball Silver Packs

2018 Topps Silver Packs are hobby-only. But it’s not a card shop-exclusive promotion. Online dealers are also eligible for the program.

Collectors buying a 2018 Topps Baseball hobby box from a participating dealer get one of the special Silver Packs. Hobby jumbo boxes are good for two Silver Packs.

Like any promotion, it’s best to check with shops and dealers to see if they’re participating in the promotion. And even if they are, it’s not a bad idea to confirm they still have the bonus packs available.

2018 Topps Series 1 Baseball released on January 31. The program continues with a second batch of exclusive cards for Series 2 (June 13 release). This year, the Silver Packs program continues all the way through to Update Series as well (October release).

    Just opened some Series 2 silver packs and pulled a Blue Wave refractor of Yadier Molina (#67) numbered to 75. Is this just an unannounced parallel?

    • Ryan Cracknell 15 June, 2018 at 18:02

      @Jason – Looks like I missed it. The rest of the parallels matched up from Series 1.

  2. Daniel D. Serrano 14 September, 2018 at 11:40
