2020 Baseball Cards at a Glance

When it comes to MLB-licensed baseball cards, Topps continues to hold the exclusive license. That means that they’re the only company that can product cards of players in their major league uniforms and use MLB logos and trademarks.

But that doesn’t mean Topps is the only company making baseball cards.

Panini has a deal with the MLBPA so they make sets with major league players past and present. The big difference is that these cards aren’t affiliated with MLB so the logos and trademarks are not there. Panini does have exclusive deals with the vast majority of NCAA teams as well as USA Baseball.

Leaf and Onyx Authenticated are among the other companies making cards. These sets center primarily on prospects.

The first set of baseball cards for the year is 2020 Topps Archives Signature Series: Active Player Edition. However, all of these cards are ones from the past that have autographs added. For most, the 2020 baseball card season kicks off with the release of 2020 Topps Series 1 Baseball on February 3, 2020. Dozens of new sets will continue to come out throughout the calendar year.

Key Rookies

Thanks in large part to the deep rookie class that 2019 brought, there are several key players getting Rookie Cards from the outset of 2020. Yordan Alvarez, Bo Bichette, Gavin Lux and Aristides Aquino are among those who will have their first base RCs on 2020 baseball cards checklists.
