2018 Topps Transcendent Baseball – Japan Edition Checklist and Details

Share:

Jump to the 2018 Topps Transcendent Baseball – Japan Edition checklist and team set lists.

2018 Topps Transcendent Baseball – Japan Edition expands the luxury brand to an international level. It’s also an entirely different product from the main 2018 Transcendent Baseball release. There’s still a heavy focus on rare autographs, rarity and the experiential element that comes with a special VIP event. However, this time around the focus is on just two players, Ichiro and Shohei Ohtani.

And, yes, that means an exclusive party with the Angels rookie.

2018 Topps Transcendent Baseball – Japan Edition Overview

2018 Topps Transcendent Baseball – Japan Edition doesn’t have the 50-plus autographs of the regular version. But the focus is also much tighter. As far as cards go, there are just 12. But all have signatures from Ohtani and Ichiro.

Ten of these cards are Transcendent Collection Autographs. All are signed on-card and come with gold frames. Base versions are also numbered to 5. Parallels include Emerald (/3), Red (1/1) and Platinum (1/1). Each box has a pair of one-of-ones.

There’s also another one-of-one in each box. Ohtani is the subject of a Through the Years Autographs set. Each card puts him on a different Topps design from the past.

Not all of the autographs in 2018 Topps Transcendent Baseball: Japan Edition are cards. It doesn’t have the cut signature but there are Shohei Ohtani photos and balls. One of each is in each box. All are inscribed as well.

Base Set Overview

A 50-card base set joins the autographs. Like everything else, it’s entirely Ohtani and Ichiro. Twenty cards highlight Ichiro’s career. Ohtani’s early career gets 30 cards.

Shohei Ohtani VIP Event

One of the trademarks of the Transcendent line is the VIP experience that comes with it. In the past, it has been intimate parties with Kris Bryant and Hank Aaron. The main 2018 Transcendent set has an event with Mike Trout lined up. For this release, it’s Shohei Ohtani.

The party will be in Japan in the months ahead.
