2024 Topps Series One: Your Comprehensive Variations And Parallels List

Have you opened a box of 2024 Topps Series One and randomly spotted a miniature Kevin Hart on a Philadelphia Phillies card? Or have you randomly found a “First Card” stamp above the team logo on a card? Your eyes aren’t deceiving you as Topps has added rare variations into this year’s set.

That’s why HobbyListings is putting together a comprehensive list of what variations Topps is offering for 2024 Series One.

The List: 2024 Topps Series One Variations And Parallels

“First Card” Stamp

These cards are literally the first ones off the press, hence being stamped “First Card.”

“Each player’s first base card printed in 2024 Series One will feature a stamped parallel,” says Topps. Essentially, they’re a 1/1 card that collectors will need to check carefully when they open packs.

Short-Print Kevin Hart Phillies Cards

No, you aren’t seeing things. A miniature Kevin Hart, a native of Philadelphia, was added to cards featuring Phillies players. These cards are short-printed (pun intended) to 52. Why that specific number, you might ask? It’s because the comedian and actor stands at a stout 5-foot-2.

Return Of Golden Mirror Variations

The popular super short-print (SSP) variation returns for a second straight year.

“The Golden Mirror Image Variations will feature all 350 base cards with a new image and all gold card backs,” writes Topps.

The best part: you don’t have to worry about looking for a code.

First Shohei Ohtani & Juan Soto Cards In New Unis

2024 Topps Series One features SSP cards of Shohei Ohtani and Juan Soto cards depicted in their new Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees jerseys, respectively. They look exactly like regular base cards, so double and triple check when you hit Ohtani and Soto cards.

These are a new SSP parallel Topps added to 2024 Series One. These cards come one per case and are easy to spot. However, they are not numbered.

True Photo Variations

These True Photo variations are new as well for 2024 Topps. These parallels removed all the base card elements to show the image in full. These SSP variations are not numbered.
