2021 Topps Throwback Thursday Baseball Checklist, Variations and Details

Share:

2021 Topps Throwback Thursday Baseball keeps with the online brand’s focus on repurposing old designs. At the same time, it’s making several changes to its delivery and adding some new elements.

Instead of putting out a new theme and design each week, things are spreading out more. Each week there’s a new group of three cards. But the theme continues for four weeks (12 cards).

The approach is similar to the one that Garbage Pail Kids Bizarre Holidays has been using. There, it’s new cards each week with numbers resetting at the start of a new month.

Besides the more drawn out approach to each theme, 2021 Topps Throwback Thursday Baseball has a couple of new chase elements that weren’t used in previous installments.

This year, there are a couple of chase elements as well. Parallels are randomly inserted in Blue (/10), Pink (/5) and Gold (1/1). Every week, one of the three cards has a Photo Variation. These land 1:20 sets. Parallels and variations are bonus fourth cards.

Weekly sets cost $14.99 each on the Topps website. Bulk discounts are also available for lots of five and ten sets.
