Fans and collectors will be hoping things are back to normal in the sports world by the time 2020 Topps Gold Label baseball is scheduled to reach the market. Set for release the week before Labor Day, Gold Label makes its annual return about a month and a half earlier than last year’s product.

Each pack will have five cards with seven packs per hobby box and 16 boxes per case.
