2016 Topps Strata Baseball will once again offer pieces of game-used material that can be pinpointed to the date of use through the MLB Authentication program.
Due out August 10, Strata will have just two cards per box, with boxes containing an autograph and relic and every other box surrendering two autographs—one on a relic card. A full checklist for the product is below.
