Who Will Be MLB Living Set #400? Topps Offers Some Hints


As The Topps MLB Living Set approaches the release of its 400th card, there has been some speculation of who card #400 will picture.

It’s almost certainly will be a Hall of Fame-type player, in keeping the set’s tradition of assigning stars to significant card numbers. During The Living Set’s three-year run so far, card # 100 (Babe Ruth), #200 (Mike Trout) and #300 (Willie Mays) have all pictured extremely significant players. And there’s no reason to believe card #400 will not.

In a recent interview Beckett Baseball conducted with Topps Art Director Michael Linkens, which will appear in the May 2021 issue and on Beckett PLUS, he alluded to card #400 and said Topps was adding a “fun new name” for the card, and revealing that the player was a catcher.

In case you were wondering, Johnny Bench has already appeared in the set as card #373.

“Well, I can tell you we have a stud,” Linkens told the magazine. “And he’s a catcher if people want to speculate. It’s a fun new name for us.”

Also in case you were wondering, Yogi Berra has not appeared in the set. Not yet anyway.

    Gotta be Yogi. Although Roy Campanella would be better since he is rarely seen in modern sets.
