2015 Topps Tier One Baseball is just my style. No base. It gets straight to the “hits”. This is actually my first time opening a box of Tier One, and man does this stuff look nice.
I wish every single product in the world could be configured like Tier One. I’m not someone that needs all that excess base which will end up sitting in a box for years collecting dust. I like cards that have some use to them. Inside each 2015 Topps Tier One Baseball box you’ll find (2) autographs and (1) relic card. One in every four packs contains an additional relic. It reminds me a lot of their Supreme brand.
Where Tier One shines the most is in it’s high-end “hits”. Prodigious Patches contain a jumbo piece of patch. Autographed Prodigious Patches have a jumbo patch and a on-card autograph. Platinum versions of these exist limited to five copies. Limited Lumber cards have a huge colorful part of the bat inside and are all numbered 1/1. Bat knobs are back too with autographed versions as well. You can even look for jumbo patch cards featuring All-Star Game relics.
The high-end cards aren’t the only good looking things in here though. Almost everything is signed on-card, except for the Autographed Tier One Relics. Those do use stickers. Where Topps really came through though are the Clear One Autographs. These look super nice!!! The layered acetate look came out well.
Boxes cost about $92.00 right now. It was a fun and fast break.
Here is what I pulled:
