2017 Topps Luminaries Baseball Box Break & Review

Ladies and gentlemen we have a new high-end baseball product that comes in the form of 2017 Topps Luminaries.  Its got style, class, and a whole lot of fun stuff to look for.  WARNING!  This product is for the gamblers and risk takers.  These are my favorite boxes to open.  They get straight to business.

At around $250 per box, 2017 Topps Luminaries is quite the roll of the dice.  Boxes contain (1) encased autograph or autographed/relic numbered to (15) or less.  The checklist is mighty extensive and includes current stars, retired legends, and Hall of Famers.  No prospects here folks.  Just the goods.

Everything is signed on-card as it should be when your spending that kind of cash for one card.  Now, not every box will have that life altering “hit”.  Nowadays all products are a gamble.  But I can guarantee that what you do find will be of a great player and serial numbered to no more than (15) copies.  If you don’t find the price of the box appealing, you can always pickup some nice looking singles on the secondary market.  That’s how I see it.  You’re never going to get a product like this for $50 per box.

Interesting note.  ’17 Luminaries has the first FULL autographed cards of Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka.  In the past, his autograph consisted of him signing just his last name.  Not all, but a few Luminaries cards have his first name.

Because my “hit” is a redemption, I have yet to see any of these cards in person.  From what I’ve seen online, they look well designed.  Despite it being a redemption, I’m very happy with my pull.  I’ve never had an issue or had to wait long to get my redemption cards fulfilled from Topps.  This is the first time I’ve broken the seal on an encased card.  It had to be done in order to get the code.

What this product has going for it are the on-card autographs, superb checklist, and low numbering.

Here is what I pulled:


  • Frank Thomas Autographed Letter Book Card Redemption #’ed 1/1

Already redeemed.  I will show it off as soon as it arrives.
