 OK GUYS this is like my favorite type of product.. loaded with photo variations, short prints, crazy rare cards!!!! Take a look at this, we are going to have a blast breaking this at Friendly Box Breaks!!!!

The 2019 Topps Walmart Holiday variations go all-in with the set’s festive theme. If you’ve ever wanted MLB cards with snowmen making like President George W. Bush on the 2007 Topps Derek Jeter or dreamed of Albert Pujols in a Santa hat, the expansive SP and SSP checklist has them.

There are a lot cards on the 2019 Topps Walmart Holiday variations checklist — 100 to be exact. Many players have multiple variations. This is because of how they’re structured. Variations have three tiers. SP are the most common, landing 1:7 packs. So they’re fairly easy to pull with at least one per ten-pack blaster-style box. With 50 cards, this is the largest group of variations.

Next up are Rare variations, which are 1:20 packs. Finally, there are Super Rare Variations that land 1:161 packs, or right around 1:16 boxes. Rare and Super Rare variations both have 25 cards. All match up with players from the SP checklist.

For the most part, you should know pretty quick if you have one of the short prints. They add things like Christmas gifts, candy canes, strings of garland and other items that fit with the Walmart-exclusive set‘s holiday theme.

But even if you know you have a variation, being able to tell them apart is important given how tough some of them are to pull. There is a way to do so by flipping the card over.

Confirming Variations and What Type They Are

With so much going on with the 2019 Topps Walmart Holiday variations and multiple types, a simpler confirmation might be helpful. And there is one in the form of the codes on the back.

As usual for most Topps variations, you can direct your eyes to the fine print on the back. Specifically, go right to the end and the CMP code. This code changes depending on the card type. It’s not intended for collectors, but it is useful.

These are the code endings to know to separate base cards from variations:

  • Base – 057
  • SP – 063
  • Rare – 064
  • Super Rare – 065

2019 Topps Walmart Holiday Variations Checklist

Here’s a quick checklist with all the 2019 Topps Walmart Holiday variations. It’s broken down by player and notes which type they have in the same spot. SP represent the easiest to pull then Rare and finally Super Rare.

2019 Topps Walmart Holiday Baseball brings the festive Mega Boxes back to the retail giant. And while there are a lot of similarities to past years, some new additions make for a noticeably bigger checklist.

2019 Topps Walmart Holiday Box

2019 Topps Walmart Holiday Base Set Basics

The base set has 200 cards, which is inline with the last couple releases. Collectors can look for a new spin on the 2019 Topps Baseball flagship design, this time with wintery accents.

The checklist includes lots of rookies including Pete Alonso, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Fernando Tatis Jr., Keston Hiura and Eloy Jimenez.

Something else that’s notable is the fact that a couple of late-season trades are reflected on the 2019 Topps Walmart Holiday that aren’t in 2019 Update Series. For example, Zack Greinke is on the Astros and Trevor Bauer has a Reds card.

Metallic parallels are once again 1:2 packs. However, this year, the snowflakes have been dropped for other festive design embellishments.

Perhaps the biggest change in 2019 Topps Walmart Holiday is the addition of variation short prints. And there are a lot of them, landing in three different tiers of rarity. The most common variations have the largest checklist with 50 cards. Rare and Super Rare Variations each have 25 cards. There is a lot of overlap with many players having SP and SSP cards.

Autographs and Memorabilia Cards

Every 2019 Topps Walmart Holiday Mega Box has one autograph or memorabilia card.

Sixty-four players have traditional Relics. This year, there are also separate Holiday Relics, which highlight 25 players and have pieces of Santa hats worn during spring training photo shoots. Select cards for both of these have autograph versions.

Also new are Faux Holiday Relics that imagine if Christmas icons like Santa and Mrs. Claus, elves, Frosty the Snowman and Ebenezer Scrooge had items that were embedded into baseball cards.

Rounding out the 2019 Topps Walmart Holiday Baseball checklist are more than 40 regular autograph cards.

While the product has no official release date, the Walmart website has a shipping date of October 30 for those ordering Mega Boxes online.

2019 Topps Walmart Holiday Baseball cards at a glance:

Cards per pack: 10
