2015 Topps UFC Chronicles Box Break & Review

 photo 15toppsufcchronbox_zpsqxmdsijj.jpg

You’ll need a forklift to pickup a box of this stuff.  There’s (400) cards in this box.  UFC collectors who enjoy putting sets together should have a fun time with 2015 Topps UFC Chronicles.  The base set comes in at a massive (275) cards.  That’s got to be one of the largest base sets for any UFC product they’ve released.  Throughout this product Topps will take you on a journey through the history of the UFC.

The base set design reminds me a lot of what we saw with 2015 Topps UFC Knockout.  Chronicles has a bit more of a border to them.  I’m glad to see that Topps kept with the matte background and glossy fighter photos.  That’s always been a good look.  The photos Topps used are top notch too.  Lots of action.  Parallels include Silver, Green, Black/White, Gold, Red, Sepia, and Blank Backs.

On-card signatures would make the overall look of any of the autographs better.  Pretty much everything is signed on stickers using white boxes.  From a visual perspective the best looking autographs would have to be the ones from the Octagon Of Honor insert set.  The stickers don’t stand out quite as much because of the fading effect Topps used on the photos.

I like the Victorious Debut Manufactured Medallions the most.  These come (1) per case and contain an octagon shaped medallion.  Boxes are configured in a jumbo format.  You’ll find (10) packs per box with each pack housing (40) cards.
