2021 Baseball Cards – What’s In Store

The MLB exclusive with Topps continues for another year. That means the only place you’ll find baseball cards with team logos and trademarks this year is in Topps products. Topps also has an exclusive with MiLB for minor league cards.

But that doesn’t mean they’re the only ones producing cards. Panini holds a license with the MLBPA. This means they can produce sets with MLB players. Panini’s deals with USA Baseball and virtually every major college in the United States puts a different spin on some of their products.

Leaf and Onyx Authenticated are among the companies making cards as well, with sets largely centered on either prospects or retired players.

Key Rookie Cards

The 2020 baseball season was strange. There’s no other way to put it. Because of the late start, virtually every rookie debut — and there were a lot of them — was held out of the main 2020 baseball card sets. While that made the traditionally loaded late-season releases pretty barren in the RC department, it means a bounty in 2021 baseball cards.  Jo Addell, Casey Mize, Joey Bart, Alec Bohm and Ke’Bryan Hayes are some of the Rookie Cards to watch.
