2022 Topps Museum Collection inserts

There are a number of inserts included in the 2022 Topps Museum Collection, including the return of popular artwork-based Canvas Collection.

Canvas Collection Originals & Canvas Collection Originals Shaped Sketch

Featuring custom artwork printed on real canvas, these art cards return for another go-around in 2022.

The checklist for this insert sets are not available pre-release, so it will be interesting to see what artists and players are highlighted.

Canvas Collection Reprints

This 50-card offering features a checklist of the biggest stars of today and yesteryear, with the canvas treatment.

Parallel “Artist Proof” versions are available and limited to print runs of 50 copies.

2022 Topps Museum Collection Memorabilia

With one memorabilia card or autograph (or autographed memorabilia) card per pack, it’s unsurprising that there are a myriad of memorabilia sets in this product. Let’s explore the different offerings.

Single-Player Primary Pieces Quad Relics

These relics feature one player per card, with four pieces of memorabilia per card. There are 98 cards in the set, each numbered to 99 copies or fewer. The checklist features mostly current players, but there is a spattering of former stars as well.

You can find Copper (/75), Gold (/25), and Emerald (1/1) parallel versions as well.

Single-Player Primary Pieces Quad Relics Gold Parallel

Single-Player Primary Pieces Quad Relics Legends

This 26 card set is numbered to 25 copies or fewer. Like the quad relics above, it features a single player and four pieces of memorabilia. Unlike the above, which is heavy on current players, this set features iconic stars of the past, including many Hall of Famers and future Hall of Famers.

Gold (/10) and Emerald (1/1) parallel offers are also available.

Meaningful Material Relics I & II

Single-player relic cards all numbered to 50 copies or fewer. These two 100 card sets have checklists that feature a mix of current stars and former players, including Hall of Famers.

Parallels include Copper (/35), Gold (/25), Ruby (/10), and Emerald (1/1).

Dual Meaningful Material Relics

The Meaningful Materials line, but with double the fun! This 28 card set, all serial numbered to 50 or fewer, feature two players and two relics.

Players are paired up as current teammates, same team, same position, and other “meaningful” pairings.

Parallels include Copper (/35), Ruby (/10), and Emerald (1/1).

Four-Player Primary Pieces Quad Relics

If one player on a relic is good, and two is better, than clearly four players is the best of all, right? This 26 card offering, which are numbered to 99 or fewer, offer a lot of goodness on a single card. Players are grouped again as current teammates, same team, and same position.

Parallels include Copper (/75), Gold (/25), and Emerald (1/1).

MLB Authenticated Base Relics

This 10 card set is numbered to 10 copies per card, and include a piece of MLB authenticated base. The checklist consists of current stars.

Parallel versions include Ruby (/5) and Emerald (1/1).

Momentous Material Jumbo Patch Relics

Featuring a jumbo-sized patch, these are numbered to five copies each or less. There are 70 cards in the set. The checklist consists of a mix of current and former players, including some current and future Hall of Famers. 1/1 Emerald parallels are also available.

Museum Memorabilia Relics I & II

These two sets contain 97 and 94 cards, respectively. All cards are 1/1, although most players have two cards in the set, so while they are 1/1 they’re not necessarily the other example of that player in the offering.

Jumbo Lumber Bat Nameplate

Featuring 75 cards, all 1/1’s, this set features large pieces of bat nameplates. The checklist is made up of current stars, former players, and a number of Hall of Famers.

2022 Topps Museum Collection Autographs

As with most ultra-modern products, the autographed hits (including signed relics) are the ones people really want, and demand the highest prices upon resale. Let’s look at some of the autographed offerings in the 2022 Topps Museum Collection boxes that collectors will be chasing.

Archival Autographs

The largest autograph offering is the Archival Autographs, which is made up of 89 cards, all serial numbered to 299 copies or fewer.

The larger checklist means that while there are a number of big names, both current and retired, there are also some more mundane names, which may not thrill collectors if they are the “big hit” from the box.

Copper (/50), Gold (/25), and Emerald (1/1) parallels are available.

Framed Hall of Fame Autographs

Single-Player Signature Swatches Dual Relic Autographs

Single-Player Signature Swatches Triple Relic Autographs

Triple Relics Autographs is made up of 34 cards. Like the dual-relics, these are numbered to 399 copies or fewer. Copper (/50), Gold (/25), and Emerald (1/1) parallel versions are also available.

Atelier Autograph Books

These books open up to display an ultra-wide photo of the featured player in their home ballpark. The set is made up of 24 cards, all numbered to 25 copies or fewer.

The checklist features all current players, a mix of future Hall of Famers, young stars, and others. No parallel versions exist for this offering.

Superstar Showpieces

This 30 card set is limited to 25 copies each or fewer. The “superstar” title is mostly accurate, although there are a few names here (Jarren Duran?) where we’ll have to wait and see.

Triple Autographs

This 9-card set offers three autographs per card. Serial numbered to 5 copies each, these cards have some great themes. Team themes give us Tom Glavine / Greg Maddux / John Smoltz and Andy Pettitte / Derek Jeter / Mariano Rivera.

Autographed Jumbo Lumber Bat Relics

The Jumbo Lumber Bat Relics memorabilia offering gets the autographed treatment. The 24-card set is limited to five copies each.

The checklist is an impressive one, with most of the biggest names in Jumbo Lumber included. A 1/1 Emerald parallel version is also available.

Canvas Collection Originals Player Autographs

20 select players from the Canvas Collection relic offering also gets autographs. These 1/1 offerings offer a nice mix of all-time greats (Ichiro, Jeter), today’s biggest stars (Judge, Freeman), and rising stars (Witt Jr.).

Dual Autographs

As the name suggests, these offer two autographs of players who share something in common. Usually this is that they are either teammates or played for the same team, but there are also at least one that is “shared positions” (Rollie Fingers / Dennis Eckersley) and a father/son (Vladimir Guerrero Jr. / Vladimir Guerrero).

The set consists of 21 cards, each limited to 15 copies or fewer. The checklist is a who’s who of big names from the last few decades.

Museum Framed Autographs

Sixty-five cards make up this offering, which isn’t serial numbered. Additionally, Silver Frame (/15), Gold Frame (/10), Black Frame (/5), and Wood Frame (1/1) parallels can be found.

Momentous Material Jumbo Patch Autographs

Momentous Material Jumbo Patch relics get autographs. These are limited to 15 copies or fewer, and the checklist is actually slightly larger than for the unsigned versions, with 83 cards.

Gold (/5) and Emerald (1/1) parallel versions are also available.

Framed Hall of Fame Autographs

As the name suggests, these cards are framed and contain autographs of members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The 41 card set is limited to ten copies or fewer.

MLB Authenticated Base Autograph Relics

10 cards, each limited to 10 copies or fewer. The checklist includes Hall of Famer Derek Jeter, future Hall of Famer Buster Posey, and eight current stars. Ruby (/5) and Emerald (1/1) parallels are tougher pulls.

A 1/1 Emerald parallel is also available.
