Always check the code on the back of the card in the super tiny print to find out. But then again, sometimes even those codes are the same...

So you have to look at the visual checklists like the ones on baseballcardpedia.com to make sure you have the right versions.
I found you need about three different sources to get full lists, especially if you just collect a specific team or player. Topps really went overkill on the variations and extras starting about 6-7 years ago and hasn't let up.
