  • Topps introduced Jared Kelley as a second artist to the set in 2021. As a way to honor Mayumi Seto, the set's founding artist, he used her background from her first card (Aaron Judge, Card No.1) as the background of his first card (Gerrit Cole, Card No.377).
  • Dante's Bichette's card (card no.490) by artist Jared Kelley features netting in the background which is a continuation of the netting artist Mayumi Seto used in her portrait of Bo Bichette (card no.304), Dante's son. It was Kelley's hope that when these two cards were placed side by side, the backgrounds would appear as one continuous scene.
  • The Matt Manning card (no.498) features a partial shadow of a cross over Manning's left shoulder. The artist, Jared Kelley, was asked by an avid collector of the set if he could add a cross to the next Detroit Tigers portrait he painted in remembrance of the collector's mother, who was a huge Tigers fan and had passed away unexpectedly.
  • Card 500, of Negro League legend, Josh Gibson, was originally going to be printed without any team logos, making it the first and only card in the set without logos. Sean Gibson (great-grandson of Josh Gibson) and a handful of collectors, were instrumental in clarifying licensing rights for the Negro League emblems which convinced Topps to add the Homestead Grays logo on the card before it went to the printers.
  • Topps MLB Living Set card no. 474, featuring Triston McKenzie (by artist Jared Kelley, 2021), was the first card in any trading card product to feature a player wearing the Cleveland Guardians uniform.
