Sports Cards and Non-Sport Card New Release Calendar


Looking for a quick way to see what cards are on the way and when they’re expected to arrive? Look no further. This 2020 sports card release calendar has a schedule for all the baseball, basketball, football, hockey, racing, soccer cards and more that have been announced so far.

Are non-sport and entertainment cards your thing? You’ll find a separate tab for those, too.

And if you’re looking for what has already been released this year, there’s also a section for that.

Sports Card Release Calendar: This Week’s Sets

Here’s a quick glance at what’s out this week.

2020 Topps Archives Signature Series Baseball

Release Date: Wednesday, January 29
1 card per pack, 1 pack per box

The first set of 2020 baseball cards isn’t necessarily 2020 cards. Topps Archives Signature Series is all about buybacks — cards from the past — that now have autographs. Each box has one signed card.

Checklist and Set Details

      @Ryan – It’s priced online so I’m guessing it should be in the next issue.

    • Ryan Cracknell 1 April, 2019 at 17:46

      @cam – It hasn’t been announced yet, but it’ll likely be similar to last year (assuming it’s returning).

  1. Veronica 2 October, 2019 at 21:51

    Hey! Any word on 2019 Topps MLB Gallery? I know it is the Walmart exclusive and it was released in November last year. I can’t seem to find anything about it as of this date.

    • Ryan Cracknell 8 October, 2019 at 09:49

      @Veronica – When it’s announced, it’ll be added. Pretty safe bet, though, as there were Preview inserts elsewhere this year.

    • Ryan Cracknell 17 October, 2019 at 21:39

      @dorianhood – You can find card boxes and sets at hobby shops and several online retailers as well.

  2. Dave 23 January, 2020 at 16:11

    Hi Ryan,

    Any ideas on when 2019-20 National Treasures and 2019-20 Flawless basketball will be released in 2020? Thanks in advance!


    • Ryan Cracknell 23 January, 2020 at 22:32

      @Dave – Details and dates haven’t been announced yet. Likely to be similar to last year, would be my guess. We’ll add them here as soon as they’re announced.
