What’s inside a 2021 Topps baseball factory set depends a little bit on where you shop.
The 700-card boxed set is a simple way to own the company’s complete flagship set without opening a bunch of packs. Of course, you won’t get any autographs, relics or variations, but you will get all 660 base cards from Series 1 and 2 in a tidy, colorful package.
The factory sets are set for release July 14.
Depending on whether you buy the “hobby” or “retail” version, the five-card bonus that’s inside will once again be different.
The hobby version will include a bonus pack containing five random serial-numbered foilboard parallel cards, like the Mike Trout card below. The best price online right now is around $52 per set.
The standard “retail” version is sold in similar, but different colored box and contains five exclusive rookie image variation cards as a bonus. Those have traditionally been hot sellers online.
Topps will also partner with Walmart and Target stores for these set:
- Walmart Special Edition with exclusive full parallels of the base set
- Target Special Edition LTO with 1 of 10 Chrome Rookie Relic cards
- Target Special Edition with 1 of 5 Exclusive Chrome rookie image variations
There’s also a factory set in the works that will be available exclusively to Topps Montgomery Club members later this year, with each card carrying a special foil stamp.
