The Ultimate 2023 Topps Stadium Club Review

From the very start of its history, when it shook up the collecting world way back in 1991, Stadium Club has been a photograph-first issue. Full-bleed photos and minimalistic design elements let the photos take center stage. 2023 Topps Stadium Club continues in this proud tradition.

2023 Topps Stadium Club has been delayed until January 2024. Collectors who preordered a box from Topps have had their orders canceled and given a $35 credit.

But what will collectors find in 2023 Topps Stadium Club? What are the release formats? And when does the product drop? And are they worth ripping?

2023 Topps Stadium Club base set & design

The 2023 Topps Stadium Club base set consists of 300 cards. The checklist consists of a mix of current MLB veterans, stars of the past, and rookies.

From a design standpoint, 2023 Topps Stadium Club stays true to the long history of Stadium Club. It’s all about the photography here. Full-bleed, borderless design makes the player photo the main event.

Other elements, such as logos and player names, and kept fairly minimalistic. If you are looking for a newer release with less history, the Topps Bob Ross Joy of Baseball release is worthy of a look.

2023 Topps Stadium Club value

By now, it should be clear that the 2023 Topps Stadium Club is a reasonably priced, photo-first product with lots of chase cards. But how do they hold their value unopened? Let’s look at recent sales comps for standard hobby boxes.

Shop for boxes of 2023 Topps Stadium Club on eBay

YearRecent Hobby Box Comp
2023$110
2022$100-130
2021$100-125
2020$150-160

These prices suggest that while Stadium Club holds value solidly, it perhaps is not the best “buy and hold” candidate, as the price gains are very slight if they exist at all (based on prior year prices upon release). These look like a fun break, and perhaps that’s how they’re best enjoyed.

In terms of singles, we can look at recent sales of 2022 Stadium Club cards in PSA 10 slabs for some reference. Doing so, we see a good number of the rarer autographed parallels selling in the $500-$1,000 range.

That’s a solid high-end upside for a box at this price point. Of course, the majority of PSA 10 sales for the product are way below that level, with a good number under the price of grading. This suggests that there’s some potential here, although be smart about what you grade to maximize returns.

Final thoughts on 2023 Topps Stadium Club

With stunning photographs, a bunch of interesting inserts and parallels to chase, and a variety of reasonably-price configurations, there’s a lot to like about 2023 Topps Stadium Club.

With buy-in points at very reasonable $25, $75, and $110 price points, these feel like a fun break that mitigates risk and should provide a bunch of great-looking cards.
