Jackson Holliday wasn’t included on the 2024 Topps Series 2 Baseball checklist released by the card maker. It’s understandable considering he made his debut on April 10 and most of the set has probably been planned, approved and printed for some time. Still, Topps took the surprise approach, getting him in under the wire as a short print variation.

The first copy of the card has surfaced and is making the rounds on social media and Reddit.

While notable on its own, there’s a nod to one of the most famous — and notorious — baseball cards of the 1980s.

Check out the bat knob. That’s a family-friendly nod to the 1989 Fleer Bill Ripken.

Holliday isn’t the only rookie to get the surprise SP-only treatment in 2024 Topps Series 2. Jackson Chourio, Jackson Merrill and Wyatt Langford also have cards despite being left off the company-released checklist. It was a similar case a couple of years ago with Julio Rodriguez, Bobby Witt Jr. and Spencer Torkelson.

No details on print runs or odds for any of the short print rookies has been announced.
