What’s in the Box: 2022 Topps Inception Baseball

There’s a lot to be happy about if you are a lover of America’s Pastime; the once threat of canceling the upcoming MLB season has been neutralized with a new CBA agreement. As a result, players on the free agency wire are making moves to new destinations and we’re only about a week from the new season starting. There’s something to look forward to this week too, as 2022 Topps Inception Baseball releases this Wednesday, March 30.

Base Set

Find some of the MLB’s biggest names going into the new season from Fernando Tatis Jr, Ronald Acuna, or even a gem like a Wander Franco rookie card. The 100 base card set will have 4 base cards and 2 base parallels in each box. With six different parallels to land:

  • Green – Limited
  • Purple – #/150
  • Magenta – #/99
  • Red – #/75
  • Orange – #/50
  • Blue – #/25
  • Inception – 1/1


There are seven cards in each box of 2022 Topps Inception, and that seventh is a guaranteed auto. Rookie and Emerging Stars Autographs feature on-card signatures of today’s stars and rookies in the majors.

Next up is Inception Dawn of Greatness Autographs, where Topps highlights some of MLB’s brightest stars and takes us down memory lane by looking back at their rookie seasons.

We also get an opportunity at grabbing a shortlist of stars in the MLB to have with Silver Signings and an even shorter list with Inception Short Print Autographs (/10). 

Autograph Relics

Finally, we have the autograph relics, and Inception was sure to give us every bit of the uniform they could get their hands on. Game Socks, Batting Glove, Patch, Jumbo Patch, and Jumbo Hat Patch are all featured in this year’s release of Inception Autograph Relics, but it doesn’t stop there.

Topps also has a slew of autograph relic books featuring Gameday Gear and Inception’s Laundry Tag, MLB Silhouetted Batter Logo Patch, Team Logo Patch, Letter, and Dual Autograph inserts.

With the various ways to land some quality hits, from top-tier base cards to super rare autographs, you can understand why this release is anticipated to get a lot of love from MLB fans and collectors alike. And what better place to start than right here on the Loupe app. So dive in with us, and please share your success on the app with us so we can celebrate with you on your wins.
