2019 Topps Baseball Factory Sets Combine Series 1 and 2, Add Exclusives
As usual, there’s some added incentive as well in the form of exclusive cards not available in packs.
For the hobby edition of the 2019 Topps Baseball factory set, it’s a pack of five parallels. Covering the full 700-card checklist, these parallels come numbered and are done on foil stock. Traditionally, these cards show up as singles in much smaller numbers than their serial-numbered print runs suggest. A lot of factory sets stay sealed or end up in the hands of collectors who tuck them away rather than break down their parts.
Although details have not been announced, retail versions that come with a different colored box and separate exclusives are the norm for Topps complete sets. Over the past several years, these have included packs of rookie variations.
Stores like Target and Walmart usually get some addition exclusive additions that sprinkle in other exclusives cards.
