2015 Topps Museum Collection Football Box Break & Review

 photo 15toppsmcfbbox_zps9uyo7gma.jpg

Museum Collection has always been a nice looking product.  That goes for both the baseball and football versions.  Its the product that introduced us to those classic metal framed autographs.  Many collectors consider their metal framed autographs from Museum Collection to be the centerpieces of their personal collection.  Other manufacturers have ripped off this feature since its inception, but nobody pulls it off better than Topps.

Ornate black borders cover a majority of the set.  Its a bold new design for this year.  Obviously when you have black borders you need to be concerned about chipping.  Luckily I haven’t seen too much of this.  For most of the cards the ornate design works well, but there are a few photographs that look a little cluttered.  Its nothing to fuss about though.  Picky people like me see aspects of cards like that.  I actually enjoy last years design a little better than this year’s.

I’m a sucker when it comes to anything art related to cards.  Artist Brad Utterstrom returns for another round of his Canvas Collection inserts that you should find (1) per box.  Its funny to see a congratulatory message on the insert’s back considering 99.9% of them won’t be the original piece of artwork.  Brad Utterstrom has worked on past Museum Collection releases along with Gypsy Queen.  He even did the artwork for the box cover.

The greatest thing about Museum Collection is it’s configuration and on-card autograph content.  Now not everything is signed on-card, but a lot is.  Even the sticker autographs were done correctly so they don’t stick out all that much.

Price can be the one thing that might stop someone from buying a box.  Boxes cost around what Triple Threads would be.  I’d take Museum Collection over Triple Threads any day.
