Arrives: June 29, 2016
Box basics: Two hits in every 16-pack hobby box

The Basics: The standard set will include 300 cards and 25 base card variations each with parallels that combine to fall one per pack. This year, the parallels are gold foil, black foil, Black & White, Rainbow (/25), First Day Issue (/10) and Members Only (one per case). …
Among the insert sets in 2016 Topps Stadium Club are Beam Team (one per box), which will have Gold (one per case) and autograph parallels limited to only five copies. Legends diecuts will be found one per box, while ISOmetrics will be two per box. Both will have rare Gold parallels that will be limited to 25 or fall one per case respectively. … Also in the insert lineup are the familiar Triumvirates with the same formula as last year — Luminous, Luminescent and Illuminator — along with Instavision and Contact Sheet cards. Instavision will be one per case with a Gold (/25) version, while Contact sheet will have White (/99), Gold (/50) and Orange (/25) parallels. … Collectors can also look for foil-stamped buyback cards from past Stadium Club releases.
For autographs, there will be Black (/50), Gold (/25) and 1/1 Orange parallels for the standard sigs, while Lone Star Signatures will have a Gold (/10) and 1/1 Orange as well. Co-Signers return limited to only five copies and there also will be autographed buybacks limited to that same amount in 2016 Topps Stadium Club.
