Topps Living Set: Checklist, Gallery, Print Runs

When Topps announced the Living Set, at first I thought it was a crazy idea. I mean, how many times can you replicate the 1953 design before it’s tiresome? Topps Heritage, 1953 Topps Archives…and I’m sure there were other releases as well.

However, after the first order arrived, I was hooked. I’ve ordered every issue they’ve released so far and I will continue to do so. I’m building this set with my son and so I don’t mind the expense given the fact that we have yet another thing to bring us closer.

If you aren’t sure what the set is about, well, I’ve copied over the official press release from Topps and posted it here for your viewing pleasure. I’ve also included scans, a checklist, and print runs announced by Topps after the end of each sale.

Topps is pleased to present the “Living Set”

A dynamic collectible trading card set that captures baseball history in a unique way.

What is a “Living Set”? It’s a trading card set that starts with Card #1, but does not have a final card. It’s not tied to any specific season or era… but lives on year after year. It’s the first cross-generational product that can be collected and traded for years to come.

As part of the Living Set program, Topps will issue one card for every player unless that player changes teams. Three new players will be offered every week and will be available for purchase for just one week.

This exciting, groundbreaking set is modeled after the historic 1953 Topps Baseball Design, the first hand-painted set. The set is one of the most popular with baseball fans even decades later as it features compelling imagery from some of baseball’s all-time greats.

The Topps living set will be created with artwork done by renowned sports artist Mayumi Seto. Seto’s art has captured the attention of baseball fans who love the lifelike rendering with a touch of flair that only Seto can provide.

Unfortunately, the cards are not serial numbered so print run totals are assumed to be correct as given by Topps. Which is a bummer, because I think it would be great to have some sort of personalization of the cards in the collection.

In keeping with the spirit of the 1953 design, I’ve also decided to keep the cards as they arrive; meaning if they’re off-centered, I’m not going to lose sleep over it. Plus, it’s a personal collection with no intention of selling later on down the road.

Enjoy!
