2018 Topps Series 1 Breaker Breakdown

2018 Topps Series 1 baseball cards offer the extensive checklist and wide range of insert cards that has become the norm for the flagship release but, as is always the case, some teams receive more love than others. Below you will find a breakdown of each team's cards found within hobby boxes. Retail exclusives are not included in this breakdown and parallels are also excluded except in the case of clear variants which have a limited checklist.

This year's checklist does include a few cards attributed to "Major League Baseball" or "American League" but those numbers are negligible and don't skew team percentages significantly. For reference, based on 30 teams, an even distribution would be 3.33% per team. Base rookie cards are also included in the total number of base cards and are separated only for the benefit of rookie card collectors.

The percentages listed next to the total card count represent the total percent of that one category so that breakers can accurately price their breaks and collectors can determine if their team is worth buying into. For a complete checklist of 2018 Topps Series 1, please visit the associated hub listed at the top of this page.
