2019 Topps Gallery was released Wednesday, once again as a Walmart and Topps online exclusive. The post-season product features this past season’s rookies, along with veterans players and a dose of former greats, all portrayed by artists commissioned by Topps for the product..

I also contributed sketch cards to this year’s Topps Gallery set and did something different: used a shiny silver paint on the backgrounds. 😀 pic.twitter.com/E8Ghuobnji

2019 Topps Gallery Configuration and Base Set
Gallery comes packaged in two ways: “Monster Boxes” which carry 20 packs of five cards with the promise of two autographs per box at a retail price of $69.99 and Blaster Boxes which carry seven standard packs with four cards in each plus an eighth pack that has four Artist Proof parallels for a cost of $19.99.
The base set consists of 200 cards, with the last 50 short printed. You’ll generally find four SPs per Monster Box. There are over 70 rookies in the first 150 cards (none are SPs).
A full checklist is below.
Serial numbered parallels can be found throughout the product with Green, Blue, Orange and Red as well as “Private Issue” parallels numbered to 250 that are exclusive to the Monster Boxes.
Inserts and Autographs
In addition to base card autographs, 2019 Topps Gallery will have autograph parallels for some of the various insert sets which include:
- Impressionists (30 card set)
- Hall of Fame Gallery (20 card set with 8 players featured on autographed versions)
- Masterpiece (30 card set with 19 players featured on autographed versions
- Heritage (40 card set based on the 1965 Topps baseball design)

Gallery includes one Relic card component, a ten-card set of former stars with a relic piece from each.
There are also oversized box topper cards available inside the Monster Boxes.
Some single cards, sets and boxes have also been listed on eBay.
