2022 Topps Holiday Baseball Variations Guide

Share:

The 2022 Topps Holiday Baseball variations add another festive layer to an already fun set.

As has become tradition for the winter-inspired release, the product has a massive checklist of variations. Instead of the usual photo swaps found in lots of Topps sets each year, Holiday variations opt for a thematic approach. Things like presents, Christmas lights and presents are integrated into the designs. Like an ugly sweater, the emphasis is on fun over making things look just right.

All together, the 2022 Topps Holiday Baseball checklist has 100 variations. They’re split into three levels of rarity. Fifty Short Prints make up the foundation. At 1:7 packs, collectors should find one and possibly two per mega box. Rare (1:20 packs) and Ultra Rare (1:160 packs) each use the same group of 25 players.

Codes and Telling Different Tiers of 2022 Topps Holiday Baseball Variations

With candy cane bats and stacks of presents blocking base paths, spotting a 2022 Topps Holiday Baseball variation is pretty obvious. However, there is no distinct mark that differentiates a more common SP from an Ultra Rare card.

To the fine print on the back we go.

Head to bottom line of the copyright info and there’s a bold CMP code. The last three digits are the ones to go to. If you’re 2022 Topps Holiday Baseball variations hunting, these are the code endings to be watching for:

  • Base – 811
  • SP – 819
  • Rare – 820
  • Ultra Rare – 821
