2015 Topps Baseball Series 1

2015 Topps Series 1 Break

I didn’t open a lot of 2015 Topps baseball. For some reason it wasn’t on my collecting radar. So I recently decided to open a hobby box of 2015 Topps Series 1. Let’s see what I got.

See you later, white borders

Topps decided to add color and detail to their 2015 flagship design; a busy color on the bottom that gradually fades to the top of the card. Definitely different from their recent white border designs, but I don’t mind it.

Loaded with inserts

Another Topps flagship product packed with inserts and parallels. No complaints here– I like inserts. Although, that Polio Vaccine card is odd…

The Gallery of Greats inserts look really nice. These are dual-layered with a rainbow foil background and printed on a nice paper stock.

All the parallels

Tired of parallels? I’m not.

Buybacks? Yes, please!

Collectors either love or hate buybacks. I love them, but only when I get my Minnesota Twins. Hey, I actually got a Minnesota Twin!

I Finally pulled a short print… or two

This is another gimmick that collectors either love or hate. I lean more towards “dislike”. Besides being too rare at times, they can be annoying to find. To find both of these, I had to look at the tiny number of the back of all the cards after sorting.

The money cards

Well, maybe not so much “money”… Honestly, I would prefer less “game used” and autographed cards at a reduced product price.

Thank you for reading. Everything but the Twins is up for trade. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in anything.
