This article is about a set that was just released.
Some information may change as more facts become known.



2016 Topps The Mint was released August 10th, 2016 -- a week earlier than previously announced. Each box will yield five serial-numbered on-card autographs with a limited checklist. On a box-per-box basis, this is the most expensive trading card product Topps has produced to date.

The Mint will feature the first fully-licensed autograph of Vin Scully.


Five cards per box (MSRP: $899). Four boxes per case. Hobby only.
