2015 Topps Field Access Football Box Break & Review

During the 2016 Industry Summit in Hawaii, we learned that Topps doesn’t plan to make any physical NFL cards this year.  The main reason for this is because of Panini’s new exclusive deal with the NFL.  Its something I wish wasn’t happening because the products Topps makes are far superior to anything Panini craps out.  Panini makes one after another cookie cutter stamped out products, that are incredibly difficult to really tell the difference between.  Trust me.  I’m not the only one who feels like this.  Its been almost two years since I’ve opened a Panini product.

Seeing that Topps doesn’t plan on making physical NFL cards for awhile, it makes perfect sense for them to clear out some old sticker autograph inventory.  That’s where 2015 Topps Field Access comes in.  This product is loaded with a lot of players you may not have seen autographs of in some time.  For those very specific player collectors this can be a good thing, because it gives you the opportunity to add to your collection.  And it probably won’t break the bank either.  High-dollar “hits” of superstars and Hall of Famers can be found, but its not the easiest thing.

For a product that you can tell was made to clear out old inventory, it came out well from a design perspective.  Topps focused on full-bleed action shots for the photos.  Having on-card autographs is really the only thing I can think of that would’ve made them look better.  But even the stickers don’t stand out that much.  I’m glad Topps went with a clear sticker and no white box for it to be placed in.  The card stock is thick too.  Almost like what Topps Prime use to be.

Collectors on a budget might enjoy picking up a box.  They’re very affordable at around $60.00.  Like I stated before you’re most likely going to pull autographs of players that haven’t seen too much new content for awhile.  You’re either going to like it or hate it.  It all depends on what you’re looking for.  There are (4) packs per box with (1) autograph inside each pack.

Here is what I pulled:
