2022 Topps Now Turn Back the Clock Baseball Checklist, Team Set Lists and Details

Share:

Normally, Topps Now sets highlight things in the moment. 2022 Topps Now Turn Back the Clock goes in the opposite direction. It looks back across the decades to highlight day-specific moments from history.

The model is similar to other Topps Now products. A new card is available on the company’s website each day throughout the season. The event on the card matches the date of the highlighted moment or milestone.

2022 Topps Now Turn Back the Clock Baseball 2 Clayton Kershaw

Print runs are based on what’s originally sold. It’s typically 24 hours but sometimes weekend cards are available for longer.

Cherry (/7) and White Ash (/3) parallels are randomly inserted in orders as bonus cards.

Single cards cost $9.99 with discounts for bundles of five, 10 or 20. Collectors can also look to eBay where they’re likely to find pre-sale cards available for significantly less than the Topps site. Some dealers buy bulk lots and offer singles at a discount. After the sales window closes, this can change based on print runs, availability and secondary market activity.

This is the third year for Topps Now Turn Back the Clock Baseball. Like 2020 and 2021, the design is based on 1987 Topps Baseball.
