2019 Topps Transcendent Baseball cards go big with the usual assortment of premium autographs, mix of one-of-ones and other rarities. There’s also the thing that makes Transcendent Transcendent — a special party with one of the game’s greats. This year’s guest? Ken Griffey Jr.
Of course, there’s also the other thing that makes Transcendent Transcendent — its five-figure price tag. While the likely $20,000-plus cost means that the average collector isn’t going to be busting a case on their own, the line has historically been biggest with group breaks where the price can be pieced out to more manageable levels for many.
Besides the party invitation, each 2019 Topps Transcendent Baseball case comes with a total of 54 autographs, at least six of which are one-ofones. While the bulk of these come from the Transcendent Autographs lineup, the majority of the unique cards come from separate subsets. A base set, sketch card and set of sketch reproductions are also inside each case.

Junk Wax Era 1988 Score
The rise in the popularity of baseball cards that would lead up to the Junk Wax Era began as early as the late 1970s, and the introduction of two new manufacturers helped spur further growth in the early 1980s. But the interest in baseball cards would reach a fever pitch by 1988, which would mark the first year since 1981 that a new manufacturer would enter the fold.
