Packing an old school look with some new school content, 2020 Topps Museum Collection will make its annual return on July 29. A full checklist is available for download below.
2020 Topps Museum Collection Configuration
The configuration remains the same as it was in 2019. Each hobby box will have four packs (mini boxes) with five cards in each: three base cards, a base parallel and one hit. Those hits will include one Autograph Relic, one on-card autograph, one Quad Relic and one relic card per box. Each case will have 12 boxes and the case hits will include pne Framed Autograph card and one Jumbo Relic Autograph.
Base and Insert Cards
Museum’s base set is usually on the smaller side with a total of 100 cards planned again this year. The parallel possibilities aren’t too hard to digest with five slated to be on the checklist including:
