Taking inspiration from 1992 Topps Kids, Topps Big Leaguers (1:4 packs) presents playful designs from artist Drake Cereal.

The mascots get in on the fun, as well, including a standard Mascots insert (1:9 packs) to go with Mascots Mania Foil Variations (1:4 cases). These rare cards highlight the fuzzy characters in their “natural habitats.”

Other short prints in 2023 Topps Big League Baseball include Game Day Drip Gold Foil, showcasing the signature styles for select players.

Beginning with Big League, Let’s Go is a super-limited Chrome continuation insert spread across several 2023 sets. In addition, the Let’s Go cards have Red Refractor (#/5) and SuperFractor (1/1) parallels.
