2019 Topps 52-Card Baseball Are Cards You’re Supposed to Play With


2019 Topps 52-Card Baseball is essentially a deck of cards with baseball players on them. More than that, it’s also game that’s meant to be played. The set, which is an online-exclusive available through the Topps website, is a collaboration with ESPN’s Kenny Mayne.

MLB players are on the cards. But rather than traditional baseball card numbers, they’re made to be part of a traditional card deck. Every box has a full set of 52 base cards.

2019 Topps 52-Card Baseball also has a chase element. Two of 26 variations are also in each box. Rather than simply using different images, these opt for other players.

A play mat is also included with each set.

    There are some obvious things wrong with this set. Garrett Cole is the only pitcher on an Ace. The Hank Aaron variation should be on a ( home run) King.
