The final set for 2015 Topps Baseball has been released!
I picked up my box from THREE STARS SPORTSCARDS and cracked it open yesterday. Here’s what I got!
Bryant gets the box cover. I’d have to say he lived up to the hype. Too bad the Cubs were swept by the Mets last night.
First card. Miller had a great year. I had him on one of my fantasy teams. STATS.
Rainbow foils for trade. The Pride and Perseverance insert set is an interesting take on players who have overcome certain difficulties to make it to the Show. A fellow blogger has made a callout for some of these.
Buybacks are supposed to come about 1:18 packs. I received 7 in my 36 packs. I don’t mind having them in packs since it is pretty neat to get some older cards but 7!?
Golds came in bunches as well. Almost every other pack had one. Odds are 1:3. Let me know if you’d like any of them in trade.
Highlights of the Year inserts carry over from series 1 & 2. This set has grown on me and I’m now looking to complete it.
A Black, too! Odds are 1:48 for this. I was able to watch the Blue Jays / Royals game last night. Both teams are incredible and I’ll be cheering for whichever one is able to make it to the World Series.
Rarities. I like the look and player selection.
I wish they would put the cards in order by Year. The numbering on these doesn’t make any sense.
I doubt I could hit a ball 441 feet. Compared to the others it seems pretty short, though.
Whatever Works inserts are an interesting idea. I think I’m going to try to complete all of the insert sets for this year’s update. I can feel another Hobby box in my future.
Snow Camo variants come at 1:86. My box also had one of these!
A photo variant. I’m not too impressed with this choice of photo.
People seem to be paying way too much for Bryant cards. This one will probably end up on ebay to off set the purchase of another box.
An Auto! I like these much more than a Relic. I don’t think Topps should include Minor League stats, though. This was a pretty good box since the Autos only drop 1:253 packs.
Here are my numbers –
299 of 400 base
I really like this release and will be getting either another hobby box or maybe a Jumbo. Once that happens I’ll do an update post. Let me know what you are looking for and perhaps we can do a trade! Thanks for reading!
