2020 Topps Series 2 Baseball Variations Guide

Share:

The 2020 Topps Series 2 Baseball variations cover a lot of the same ground as Series 1. That means a variety of different photos including casual dress, formal wear and other ballpark fun.

For some collectors, more notable will be the return of more retired legends with seldom-seen pictures.

The bulk of the variations can be found in two tiers in 2020 Topps Series 2 Baseball packs: SP and SSP, which are extremely tough. We’re still gathering the odds but SP are 1:6 retail hander boxes. SSP cards are 1:175.

The 2020 Topps Series 2 SP Variations checklist is a big one with 75 cards. SSPs total 25 cards.

2020 Topps Series 2 Baseball Variations: The Return of the SSSP

Like the scarce polar bear Pete Alonso and Rob Manfred cards from Series 1, there is a third tier of variation short prints. Odds for these aren’t on the pack. And the number that exist still isn’t know.

However, they are different — and presumably the most rare — as they have a different code signifier on the back.

The first “SSSP” to surface was a “Rookie Stars” card featuring Bo Bichette, Luis Robert and Yordan Alvarez. It looks fairly inconspicuous and has the same checklist number as Robert’s RC (#392).

Mookie Betts also has one where he’s cast against an illustrated Hollywood backdrop.

2020 Topps Series 2 Baseball Variations: The Codes

With so many SP and SSP cards, remembering all the different photos can be hard. There is a simpler and faster way to confirm if you have one of the 2020 Topps Series 2 Baseball variations. It has nothing to do with the picture on the front. Instead, flip the card over.

At the end of the copyright info is a CMP code that’s meant for production, not collectors. However, these codes separate different types of cards — like variations. Regular base cards end in 099. If you have an SP variation, it ends in 115. For SSPs, it’s 116.

Different cards have all sorts of different codes but these are the ones that are relevant for variation hunting.

Codes to Remember:

  • Base – 099
  • SP Variation – 115
  • SSP Variation – 116
  • SSSP – 117
