2019 Topps x Vlad Jr. – The Legend Brings Another Baseball Card Collaboration

Share:

It’s probably too soon to call someone who just finished their rookie season a legend. But all legends and would-be legends need an origin story. That’s a central focus of 2019 Topps x Vlad Jr. – The Legend, a collaboration between the card maker and Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

Like other sets done in partnership with the likes of Bryce Harper and Francisco Lindor, this set is more than just attaching a name. Guerrero Jr. had a hand in selecting the designs, players and overall theme. Of course, he takes center stage on many aspects of the checklist as well.

2019 Topps x Vlad Jr. – The Legend Overview

Available in both standard and Collector versions, the foundation of 2019 Topps x Vlad Jr. – The Legend is the 40-card base set. It’s broken up into four sections, all of which revolve around Guerrero’s first season in the majors or his baseball roots. Each subset comes with its own design.

2019 Rookie Campaign showcases Guerrero Jr. along with eight other MLB freshmen. These include expected big names like Pete Alonso and Fernando Tatis Jr. as well as three of Guerrero’s teammates: Cavan Biggio, Danny Jansen and Rowdy Tellez.

With the display he put on at the Home Run Derby, it shouldn’t be a surprise that the event is part of another subset, Home Run Derby Legends. These ten cards look at some of the most notable performances over the years.

Friends/Favorites has some of the players Guerrero knows personally as well as some that he admires.

Finally, there’s Senior/Junior, which pairs up father-son baseball combos. Naturally, Vlad Jr. is joined by his father here.

Standard versions of the set include just the base set. Collector sets have the full set plus an autograph or memorabilia card plus a parallel numbered to 10 or less.

For the hits, autographs are the most common, landing every 1.2 Collector sets. These feature 11 different players from the base set using stickers for the signatures. Guerrero Jr. has on-card autographs insert 1:6.2 Collector sets.

He’s also the only player with a memorabilia card (1:5.3 Collector sets).

Sets are available on the Topps website for three weeks starting November 21. Premium sets could sell out sooner.
