Without much fanfare, 2021 Topps Fire Baseball arrived at Target stores this week–or at least to the company’s website. Once again featuring cards from Australian artist Tyson Beck, Fire has been around for a few years now.
This year’s product offers two options: Hobby and Blaster boxes, both of which feature Mets slugger Pete Alonso on the front.
2021 Topps Fire Configuration and Base Set
Hobby boxes contain 20 packs with six cards per pack and two autographs per box. The $19.99 Blaster version offers the usual seven packs of six cards, with no guarantee of an auto. There’s also a bonus four card pack for a total of 46 cards.
The base set consists of 200 cards featuring mostly active players with a few Hall of Famers sprinkled in.
There’s a rookie dominated checklist of 70 base card autographs that make up the bulk of the signed content in Fire.
Other autographs can be found in the Scorching Signatures subset, which features 18 different players, six of whom are rookies.
There are ten different dual autographs and five different triple autos.
Inserts include a 25-card Rookie Ignition set, 20-card sets called We Have Liftoff and Smoke ‘n Mirrors, a 15-card Flame Throwers set focused on pitchers and a 15-card set called Fired Up.
Boxes were available on Target.com for a while and may return there but they are readily available on eBay from re-sellers who jumped on them early.
