In Focus: A Review Of The 2022 Topps Clearly Authentic Release

The formula for Topps Clearly Authentic 2022 is simple. One pack per box, one card per pack. That one card? Made of acetate, autographed on-card, and encased.

This premium offering cuts out the fluff and brings just the hits. While clearly an ultra-modern, high-end product, the product does pay homage to two vintage Topps sets, which is a nice touch.

2022 Clearly Authentic Topps Rookie Autographs

2022 Topps Clearly Authentic Rookie Base autographs match the design of the 2022 Topps Flagship product. Some of the Clearly Authentic cards have different photos than the Flagship product, and the acetate stock is definitely an upgrade.

The set offers 40 cards of some of the hottest rookies available in 2022 Topps, including Bobby Witt Jr., Julio Rodriguez,  Oneil Cruz, and more.

Add in an on-card autograph and encase the whole thing in a protective plastic slab, and you’ve got an impressive offering.

In addition to the “base” autograph offering, there are several serial numbered color parallel versions available.

These include:

  • Green /99
  • Black /75
  • Red /50
  • Blue /25
  • Purple /10
  • Orange /5
  • Gold 1/1

See the bottom of the article for a checklist of the 2022 Topps Clearly Authentic Rookie Base Autographs (as well as the other offerings from this product).

2022 Topps Clearly Authentic 1955 Reimagining Autographs

Beyond the base offering, you’ll find several other autograph offerings, including 2022 Topps Clearly Authentic 1955 Reimagining Autographs.

These pay homage to the classic vintage design of 1955 Topps, which featured a memorable horizontal design and both a portrait and “action” shot.

With 48 cards numbered to 199 or fewer, this set features Hall of Famers and franchise icons as well as some of the biggest stars of today.

1/1 Sepia parallels offer another level of chase.

2022 Topps Clearly Authentic 1987 Topps Autographs

While perhaps not the classic vintage set that 1955 Topps is, 1987 Topps is a classic in its own right.

Released in the junk wax era (maybe someday we’ll argue about whether 1987 was the start or middle of that particular time period), it featured an easily recognizable woodgrain design and a lot of rookie cards, some of which have aged better than others since its release 35 years ago.

The 2022 Topps Clearly Authentic 1987 Topps Autographs pays homage to this design, in a set that features 45 cards and a checklist that features big names past and present.

Parallel versions include:

  • Green /99
  • Black /75
  • Red /50
  • Blue /25
  • Purple /10
  • Orange /5
  • Gold 1/1

Parallel versions include:

  • Green /99

  • Purple /10
  • Orange /5
  • Gold 1/1

The final word on Clearly Authentic 2022 Topps

Topps Clearly Authentic 2022 is a premium product that offers no base set, just autographs. The price of admission for a single card is not inexpensive, but with some interesting checklists, cool parallels, and hat-tips to great Topps sets of the past, Clearly Authentic has a place under the 2002 Topps Umbrella.
