Topps is putting a handful of baseball lines on the shelf in 2023. During a presentation at their Industry Conference in Arizona today, they announced the following brands are not a part of their release calendar, at least as standalone products:

  • Archives Snapshots
  • Bowman Chrome X
  • Clearly Authentic
  • Fire
  • Gallery
  • Gold Label
  • Opening Day
  • 1st Edition

Of those on the list, Opening Day has been around the longest continuously. The set, which closely mimics flagship Topps Baseball, dates back to the 1990s.

Gallery and Gold Label do as well, but both have had extended breaks before being brought back.

Autograph Announcements

Among the other announcements are some notable autograph signers coming in the months aheads.

Tom Brady is getting some baseball cards. The quarterback was also drafted by the Montreal Expos in 1995. That didn’t pan out, but Topps has plans for some Expos “Cards That Never Were” — including autographs.

It’s worth noting that Topps did issue Tom Brady autograph redemptions in 2014 Topps Five Star Baseball that still haven’t been fulfilled.

Although LeBron James has never had an autographed Topps card, his son will. Bronny James’ signature will be in Topps Chrome McDonald’s All American Basketball.

On the Star Wars side, Oscar Isaac is getting his first autograph cards. He played Poe Dameron in the Sequel Trilogy. Mark Hamill is also returning with new autographs for the first time in over five years.

    So basically most of the lower end sets are leaving. What’s left for those of us that don’t care for the $1000 box with 5 cards high end sets?

    What is wrong with Gallery or Fire,to me this is ominous for the hobby, maybe Panini will fill in the gaps,prepare to change your buying habits

    Bummer about Opening Day, it was always a fun rip and I once pulled a massive Yordan Alvarez rookie auto.

    How are they going to say 1st Edition won’t be coming, when it’s already here?!

    Why is the primary news writer for Beckett putting up quotes from someone else that was at the Industry Conference instead of just reporting the news directly?
