2021 Topps Pro Debut Baseball Variations Guide


The 2021 Topps Pro Debut Baseball variations list isn’t a big one. However, ten players still get the SSP treatment with inserts disguised like regular base cards. They represent some of the top names in the set including Wander Franco, Adley Rutschman, Austin Martin and Spencer Torkelson.

Spotting them is easier on some cards than others. While all of them have different photos, cards #PD-151 and up do have a different layout. In the main base set, the final 50 cards are a subset of sorts that use the 1991 Topps Baseball design. Variations stick with the flagship style design. This change applies to six of the set’s ten SSPs.

At 1:340 hobby and 1:120 jumbo packs, variations are tough finds in 2021 Topps Pro Debut Baseball. Each also has a one-of-one Black parallel (1:61,688 hobby, 1:27,432 jumbo).

Confirming with Codes on the Back
