2020 Topps Black and White Baseball Checklist and Details


Most sports card sets are brimming with color. 2020 Topps Black and White Baseball does not. For the most part, the online release abandons color all together, at least on the front, opting for the drama the comes in the grayscale.

Released under the Topps On-Demand banner through the company’s website, all base cards use striking black and white imagery. Similar to Stadium Club, the design is full-bleed, further emphasizing the photography.

Packs, which originally run $60, come with 30 cards. Twenty-five are base. But it’s not a complete set. It has 75 cards. It’s primarily veterans using 2019 images. However, some rookies and retired stars are also on the checklist.

The remaining five cards are a mix of parallels and inserts.

Base parallels start with Sepia. Others bring in color with Color Background (/25), Color Player (/10) and Full Color (1/1).

There are also three different insert sets, each with ten cards: 2019 Champions and Awards, Baseball Headlines and Historical Duals.

Every other pack has an autograph. These are essentially base cards with the added signatures, which are with stickers. Autographs have a couple of parallels as well.
