Bike Spokes and Shoe Boxes – 2015 Topps Museum Collection ​


Per Box Items:
4 mini-boxes per master box
5 cards per mini-box
1 autograph or relic card in every mini-box
Every master box contains:
1 on-card autograph
1 autographed relic
1 quad relic
1 jumbo relic

The 100 card base set features color action shots super-imposed over gray-scale backgrounds. The border-less cards have the set name in silver foil along the top of the card fronts. The player name, position and team logo are in silver foil along the card bottom. The card bottoms are also trimmed with a corresponding team color. The card backs are photo-less. The backs contain moderate biographical information, career statistics and moderate career highlights.

What I pulled:
20 unique cards
11 base set cards, 11/100
3 beige parallels
1 green parallel #/199
1 canvas collection reproduction insert
1 on-card autograph
1 autographed relic
1 quad relic
1 jumbo relic

The Hits:


Museum Collection is Topps’ first high-end release of 2015. With only 20 cards per master box collectors buy 2015 Museum Collection for the hits. I really like the mix of retired and current stars. The card stock is thicker than standard sized cards but are not too flashy. The thickness and set name name are the only attributes that portray a premium set. The hits are definitely what collectors are busting cases of product for. I love the fact that every hit is serial numbered. The color and the patch swatches are another huge plus for me. They are a far cry form the plain what and gray swatches that dominate relic cards. The Simmons auto is a sticker while the Rivera is on-card. The sticker does not really detract from the card though. 2015 Topps Museum is a big hit hunter’s dream! Buy a box and trade your Tigers cards to me!

The Bottom Line:
I give 2015 Topps Museum Collection a shop around rating. It will take several boxes and/or trading to complete the base set. Even though I had a nice pull, you may be better off buying singles you want.

The Final Score:
Final Ratings (Out of 5):
Base set collect-ability: 1/5

Prospector Hunter: 1/5
Overall Design: 5/5

Overall: 31/40 (77%5) = C
