2015 Topps APEX Soccer Box Break & Review

I don’t care if you’re a soccer fan or not.  I think we can all agree that $45.00 for a hobby box which guarantees (2) autographs and (1) relic is a darn good deal.  Most of us have spent much more on other products and have received a lot less.  Just for the average box breaker looking for something to open, 2015 Topps APEX Soccer is one option they should look into.  Not only do I like the price, but the way the product is configured is attractive too.  Boxes only contain (2) packs each housing (32) cards.  It gets straight to the point quite fast.  I wish more products were configured like this.

From a design perspective, the base set looks like a cross between Topps Fire and Valor.  I’d like to see Topps make the player’s picture a bit more artistic rather than just the background.  The painted look has always been a winner for me.  The overall set consists of (110) cards.  The last (10) are short prints.  I think the only drawback is that the autographs are on stickers.  Out of all the autographs, relics, and parallels, I enjoy the look of the Match Day die-cut auto/relics.  The soccer balls used for these cards offer some nice looking multi-colored pieces.  Plus for any of you math nuts out there you’ll realize they look like a parallelogram.  And yes.  There are parallels of these tiny parallelograms.  Its parallelception!

I’m not a huge soccer fan, but who could pass up a deal like this.  The price is what really drew me to 2015 Topps APEX.  For the low cost you get some high-end looking stuff.
