Share:

2019 Topps 150 Years of Baseball is a weekly series of online-exclusive cards that explore the history of the game. The checklist takes a multi-generational approach and has several themes.

Each Tuesday, a new batch of three cards is made available on the Topps website. Cards are available individually for 7.99 or as a bundle with all three cards for $14.99. Similar to Topps Living Set, these three cards are available for one week. At the end of the sales window, print runs are determined and cards are sent out.

2019 Topps 150 Years of Baseball cards have a few different themes, so not every one is in play each week. They are: Historic Moments, Records and Award Winners and Rookie Campaigns.

Artist Renditions use original art featuring baseball’s greats. The first in the set came from renowned painter Graig Kreindler.

Some cards also have autographs in additional to the regular version.

This set is separate from the separate 150 Years of Professional Baseball inserts found in the flagship 2019 Topps Baseball line. While there is some overlap in themes and players, the designs and checklists are different.

    Assuming the autos sold out already? Can’t tell (at least on mobile) from Topps’ terrible new website

    Is Beckett going to include this set in its price guide or is it going to stop updating values like it did with the TBT set and Living Set? It’s impossible to find there at the moment, especially with the 150 cards from the main set.

    @Ryan – Thanks for the reply with the link to the listings. I still worry that pricing will never happen, though siting the abandonment of pricing for the other weekly online releases #TBT & Living Set.
