2020 Topps Now Baseball Checklist, Team Set Lists, Print Runs and More

Share:

It’s a few months later than expected, but the MLB season is officially started. Some things are different this season, like cutouts replacing fans in the stands, but the games go on. And with that comes 2020 Topps Now Baseball cards highlighting key moments as they happen.

The print-on-demand set returns for a fifth year. Its checklist will evolve throughout the season with dramatic moments, key highlights, record-setting achievements and pretty much anything deserving of a headline. Taken together, it’s the story of the season.

That comes through in the first cards offered commemorating Opening Day. Sure, there are some players. But that doesn’t tell the entire story. The checklist starts before the official first pitch of the first game.

Card #2 features Dr. Anthony Fauci making the ceremonial first pitch at the Nationals-Yankees game. He has been the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease and has been in the news helping direct the United States through the COVID-19 pandemic. The Fauci card set a Topps Now record, selling 51,512 copies.

Given the structure of the set, 2020 Topps Now Baseball is able to chart notable MLB debuts as they happen. Within the first few days, the checklist reflected this with cards of Luis Robert, Brady Singer and Yoshi Tsutsugo.

2020 Topps Now Baseball: How to Buy

Cards are available through the Topps website for just 24 hours. Once again, individual copies are $9.99 with discounts available for bulk orders. Some take advantage of the bulk price and offer discounts on individual cards through eBay for closer to $5-$6 per card.

After the sales window closes, Topps announces print runs. This makes for a pendulum of sorts for production numbers. Naturally, some of the biggest moments and rookie debuts traditionally get bigger numbers while cards that likely appeal mainly to a specific team’s fanbase tend to seller fewer.

Randomly included in the print run are parallels numbered to either 49, 25, 10, 5 and 1. These replace the regular cards ordered.
