Today is the official release day of 2018 Topps Series Baseball and collectors have already identitified many of the short printed variations within this set.
With those early finds, collectors have begun finding the image and legend variations that exist and we’re here to provide an image gallery so that you can easily recognize whether or not you have a short-print in your hands.
To identify your cards without using the image gallery, you can check the CMP codes on the back of the cards.
