Lost in last week’s release of Heritage was the return of the 2016 Topps Sticker set. This season’s collection marks the 35th anniversary of its debut when Topps ventured beyond its flagship brand to produce several new products to compete with its new rivals at Fleer and Donruss.
While aimed primarily at getting youngsters interested in collecting, the relatively low price and unique photos in the sticker set do tend to attract some adult collectors as well.
Each box of 2016 Topps Stickers will contain 50 packs with eight stickers per pack. Online pricing generally falls between $35 and $45.
The 32-page album, sold separately, has a page for each MLB team and a section that commemorates the 2015 post-season.
This year’s edition will again include a 301 piece set with nine stickers for each team as well as some mascots. Only four rookies are represented in the set, which opens with a Topps logo. Mike Trout, card #1 in the Topps card set, is #2.
