2014 Topps Stadium Club Baseball marks the return of the name that launched the ‘premium’ brand in sports cards and we now know more about the return of a product that first made its debut back in 1991 and last appeared in 2008. Topps has offered a sneak preview at the product but you won’t find this one at your local Walmart or Target. It’ll be hobby exclusive when it arrives the first week of October. A complete, downloadable checklist is below.
The Finest base set will consist of 200 cards with each pack containing five of the brand’s signature full-bleed photo cards.
There will be three mini boxes of six packs inside each master box of 2014 Stadium Club. Topps promises an on-card autograph guaranteed in every mini-box so collectors can likely expect three signed cards inside every box at a likely cost of $100-115.
There will be 12 boxes per case.
