Topps Traded

Topps Traded.

I’ve added Topps Traded(Update/Updates & Highlights/Traded & Rookies/whatever they’re calling it this week besides Series Three) to the ongoing card database I’m making in a Google Sheets spreadsheet. Some interesting tidbits after compiling the sets data…


There were 19 sets produced throughout the years with checklists as one of the cards(Ex. 1981 Topps Traded #132). The least represented team(Expos) had 115 cards in Topps Traded’s run. The team(Yankees) with the most had 494 cards across the set. Team USA has 95 Topps Traded cards – see 1988, 1991, 1992, 1993.

Top Fives.

Combining the two least represented teams(Expos/Nationals) leaves the Rays, and Diamondbacks as the two least represented teams. Makes sense? Duh. The next three in order were the Rockies, Royals, and Twins. The usual suspects are near the top when sorting by most represented: Yankees, Cardinals, Red Sox, Mets, and Dodgers. With that I’ll leave you with the team breakdown.
