Lowest Print Run Topps Now Cards...So Far



Last week, I highlighted the highest print runs through the 2021 season. This week, we'll focus on the lowest print runs. These are strictly base cards, so this omits the "Turn Back The Clock" runs as well as any parallels, autos, and relics.

 

#10: Baltimore Orioles - Card 73 - Print Run: 220


Thanks to a career first walk-off single by Ramón Urias, the Baltimore Orioles split an exciting early season doubleheader against the Seattle Mariners.




 

#9: Eduardo Escobar - Card 217 - Print Run: 220


Eduardo Escobar's All Star season started up back in May with a crazy 7 RBI game versus the Nationals. Escobar hit two homers in this game as well with both coming in the late innings putting the game out of reach for Nats.

 

#8: Jake Fraley - Card 333 - Print Run: 218


No words, just watch:



 

#7: Travis Shaw - Card 161 - Print Run: 213


The Mayor of Ding Dong City won the game with a home....nope he didn't. It happened to be a stung single into the shift that led the Brew Crew to winning in the bottom of the 11th versus the Dodgers.



 

#6: Jesús Aguilar - Card 476 - Print Run: 213


Jesús Aguilar cranked a walk off home run versus the Dodgers (again?) right before the All Star break. This HR measured 398' with an exit velo of 103.6mph.



 

#5: Tampa Bay Rays - Card 262 - Print Run: 209


This win versus the Toronto Blue Jays gave the Rays a share of the AL East at the time. This win was attributed to a four walk ninth inning which put them up by two. Unfortunately, they weren't able to crack their team record of 12, even though Rich Hill struck out 13.

 

#4: Ryan McMahon - Card 45 - Print Run: 207


MLB The Show players know this card extremely well. This stayed in most lineups for a while. McMahon smacked three homers in a game against the Arizona Diamondbacks, giving him four in the past five games.

 

#3: Manuel Margot - Card 272 - Print Run: 205


Another walkoff, thanks to Manuel Margot's bat, makes the Topps Now list. This was against the Royals in the bottom of the tenth.



 

#2: Corbin Burnes - Card 522 - Print Run: 203


Corbin Burnes is having an incredible year. He broke the record for most strikeouts without a walk with 58. Along with that, this performance was the longest of his career, striking out 12 Reds on the way to an 8-0 win for the Brew Crew.

 

#1: Adam Duvall - Card 385 - Print Run: 191



With only 191 of these produced, here we have the lowest print run card of 2021, so far. Adam Duvall went on a tear, running into four homers in two games, which gave him seven in the past nine games. This was the third time this year he's had a two home run game. He's no stranger to these streaks, having a three home run game to his name.
