Here’s What the Year in 2019 Baseball Cards Looks Like from Topps


For the most part, the hobby release calendar for 2019 Topps baseball cards is similar to 2018. Most of the same brands are returning for another year. Topps gave card shop owners a glimpse of what to expect at their Industry Conference in Arizona.

The biggest change is on the Bowman side. Bowman High Tek is being dropped. In it’s place is the return of Bowman Sterling, which will have one autograph per pack and five total per box.

Here’s a breakdown of what the 2019 Topps baseball release calendar looks like right now. It’s worth noting that things can change. Retail- and online-exclusives are not included, either.

      @Jeremy – It really depends on what you have. The vast majority, you’re not going to get rich off them. There’s so much of it out there. Exceptions exist, but not for the vast majority.

      @Matt — Ah, not sure on that. Usually around Opening Day is when they roll things out if I remember correctly (I haven’t figured out how to log-in since they removed Twitter log-ins).

      @Eric – If it’s coming back, it’ll likely be a retail-exclusive like past years. This was a conference for hobby dealers so it covers hobby releases.
