Just released

2014 Topps Allen & Ginter's, a 350-card set, was released to the hobby on July 9th and to retail outlets a few days prior. Similar to prior years, hobby boxes contain 24 packs and include autographs and relics from athletes, celebrities and notable personalities.

2014 Panini Golden Age is a 150-card set, released in July, 2014. Each pack will contain one mini-sized parallel, and each 24-pack Hobby box will yield one Autograph, one memorabilia card, and one over-sized box topper.

2014 Bowman Inception was released the week of June 18, 2014. As with the previous year's version of the product, there is no base set in the traditional sense. Each five card pack contains four autographs and an autographed relic card.

2014 Topps Series Two, a 330-card set, was released to retail outlets on or near June 9, 2014.

2014 Topps Archives is a 250-card set released the week of May 28th, 2014. As in previous years, the product recycles Topps designs from the past in both the base set and inserts. The product is notable for the inclusion of cards and autographs from cast members of the 1989 film Major League.

2014 Panini Prizm is a 210-card chromium stock set released May 22, 2014. The product includes significantly more Prizm parallels that in year's past, and the odds of finding an autograph have been reduced to 1:6/packs. The last ten cards in the base set make of a "Highlights" subset, and are all short-printed. Each 12-pack Hobby box is expected to yield six Prizm parallels (at least three being serial-numbered) and two autographs (one of which is signed on-card).

2014 Bowman was released on April 30, 2014. Similar to previous Bowman releases, the base set contains 220 cards, the Propects insert set contains 110 cards and there are the usual slew of colored parallels. Hobby boxes contain 24 10-card packs. Jumbo boxes yield 12 32-card.

2014 Topps Gypsy Queen, a 350-card set, was released on April 10, 2014. Each 10-card pack will contain one mini parallel and each 24-pack Hobby box is expected to yield two autographs, one standard-sized Relic, a mini-sized Relic, and a 10-card box of additional minis.

2014 Topps Opening Day, a 220-card set, was released March 18, 2014. Like previous years, the 2014 Opening Day base set mimics the 2014 Topps Series One design at an affordable price. Each 99-cent pack contains seven cards, one of which is an insert. Added this year are relic cards of ten different players.

2014 Topps Heritage is a 500-card set released March 14, 2014. In its 14th year, 2014 Heritage is based on the "pennant" design of the 1965 Topps set. Each 24-pack Hobby box should yield one autograph or Relic card, one over-sized box topper, eight short-printed base cards, and nine inserts.

2014 Donruss is a 200-card set released February 26, 2014. This was the first "Donruss Baseball" set in nine years; however, bears little resemblance to the "flagship" brand it had been. Instead, Panini decided to reconfigure Donruss into a "retro" style product. Each 24-pack Hobby is expected to yield two autographs, a game-used card, and an over-sized Diamond Kings box topper.

2014 Topps Series One was released, both to retail outlets and hobby shops, during the last week in January 2014. Each hobby will yield an autograph. Similar to 2013, short-printed and super short-printed variations exist along with the slew of inserts, relics and manufactured patch cards.

2013 Topps Supreme, released in mid-December only in Asia, promises two autographs per box.

2013 Topps Five Star is a 100-card set released on December 5th. Similar to the previous year's product, each six-card box will yield: One base card or parallel, one Relic, two autographs, either a third autograph or an autographed patch card, either an autographed "book" card or a Silver Signatures card.

2013 Topps Heritage High-Number Series, a 100-card factory set, was released during the last week of November 2013. Each factory set, which were sold directly from for $100 each, contains 100 base cards and one autographed card.

2013 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects was released the week of November 13, 2013.

2013 Panini Prizm Perennial Draft Picks is a 148-card set released November 8th, 2013. Each 20-pack Hobby box will yield six Prizm parallels, three inserts, and four Prospect Signature autographs. This product does not feature any active Major League players, and is not licensed by either MLB Properties or the MLBPA. Prizm Perennial does contain the first autographs of Mark Appel, the first overall pick in the 2013 MLB Draft, and Cuban refugee Jose Abreu.

2013 Triple Threads is a 171-card set released by Topps the week of October 25, 2013. The product's format is familiar: Each pack containing one "Relic" and one autographed "Relic".
