2020 Topps Stadium Club Baseball Variations Guide


The great photographs are overflowing. As a result, there are 2020 Topps Stadium Club Baseball Variations. The SSP cards switch out one stellar picture for another. In doing so, it adds to the set’s chase for some and adds another reason to look closely for others.

Like pretty much all of Topps’ short prints, those found in 2020 Stadium Club Baseball look almost identical to base cards. But they’re not. And they’re a lot more scarce. Star veterans, key rookies and all-time greats are all on the checklist. As for themes to help recognize them right away, there isn’t one. Some players are celebrating and having fun. On others, ballparks and backgrounds are prominent. Playoff games and World Series parades are also on some. A lot of them are just great shots. It’s as simple as that. The Stadium Club base set has shots worthy of SSP status in other releases. It’s basically just more of the good stuff with the short prints.

Similar to 2019, there are a lot of SSP cards in 2020 Stadium Club — 50 to be exact. For team collectors, it could prove to be challenging as some franchises have a handful to track down. Others get off easy.

You’ll find variations in all 2020 Topps Stadium Club Baseball pack types. That said, they’re not very easy to pull. At the hobby level, you’ll find one or two per case. Here’s a full breakdown of how often (or infrequently) you can expect an SSP:

  • Hobby – 1:142 packs
  • Retail – 1:227 packs
  • Blaster – 1:227 packs
  • Value Fat Packs – 1:95 packs

2020 Topps Stadium Club Baseball Variations Code Confirmation

Not interested in memorizing a bunch of photos? As usual for Topps SPs, the production notes in the fine print on the back offer up a quick way to confirm base cards from their short print counterparts.

Flip over the card. Direct your eyes to bottom where there’s lots of small print. It’s mostly copyright info and legal stuff. But there’s also a simple trick that can help. The code at the end is meant for production. But it also has a key for confirming SSPs and various card types. Look at the last three digits. Ignore the rest. Here’s what you need to know to tell them apart.

  • Base – 357
  • Variation – 394

Basically, if the code ends in 357, you’ve got a regular base card. If it’s 394, you have a tough short print. If it’s neither, you have another insert that isn’t relevant to SSP hunting.
