Featuring many of the budding MLB stars, 2019 Topps Inception Baseball works with a "less is more" mindset. In this case, the format sticks with the seven-card boxes of past years. Of course, each box has one autograph or autograph relic.
Those buying cases can expect four autograph relics, one autograph jumbo patch, and one Silver Signings card per case.
2019 Topps Inception Baseball Base
The first thing many collectors will notice with 2019 Topps Inception Baseball is the design. Seemingly switching back and forth each year, 2017 had a lighter color scheme while 2018 went a bit darker. For 2019, we head back to the light.
Inside the 100-card base set is a roster of rising talent. The players can also be found in several parallels, including Green, Purple (#/150), Magenta (#/99), Red (#/75), Orange(#/50), Blue (#/25), Inception (1/1), and the one-of-one Printing Plates. Parallels combine to average two per box.
2019 Topps Inception Baseball Autographs
The 2019 Topps Inception Baseball checklist also promises many on-card signatures. The numbered Base Rookies & Emerging Stars Autographs subset uses the base design as a canvas for hard-signed content. Parallels include Magenta (#/99), Red (#/75), Orange(#/50), Blue (#/25) and Inception (1/1).
Focusing on the league standouts, the Short Print Inceptions Autographs lineup is limited to just 10 copies apiece. More stars enter the mix in Inception Legendary Debut Autographs (#/20). These hard-signed cards showcase the veteran players during their MLB debuts. There are also Orange (#/10), Blue (#/5) and Inception (1/1) parallels.
Contrasting with the lighter designs, the case-hit Inceptions Silver Signings cards use a black scheme and silver ink to really pop. These come as Gold (#/25) and Gold Inscription (1/1) versions, as well.
2019 Topps Inception Baseball Autograph Relics
Giving even more attention to the up-and-coming names are the numbered auto relic inserts. Averaging 1:4 boxes, the Inception Autograph Patch cards offer top 2018 rookies and other young subjects, while the one-per-case Inception Autograph Jumbo Patch cards look to the 2019 rookies and additional notable players.
The standard patch set has numbered Magenta, Red (#/25), Orange (#/10), Blue Button(#/6) and Inception Majestic Logo (1/1) parallels, and the jumbo edition adds Orange(#/10), Blue (#/5) and Inception (1/1) parallels.
There are also the all-new Inception Autograph Jumbo Hat Patch cards that display player-worn MLB Silhouetted Batter Logo (#/5), New Era Logo (#/5), or Team Logo(#/5) patches.
Very rare booklet cards finish off 2019 Topps Inception Baseball with several choices. This includes on-card Inception Autographed Team Logo Patch Book (#/2), Inception Autographed Letter Book (#/2), Inception Autographed Laundry Tag Book (1/1), and Inception Autograph MLB Silhouetted Batter Logo Patch Book (1/1) cards.
