2018 Topps Inception Baseball Box Break & Review

After opening a box like Series 2, Topps Inception can be a nice switch.  Its a bit more high-end, and gets straight to the point.  Products configured like Inception are my favorite type to bust open.  Its a high-risk and reward setup.  If your opening boxes with the only thought of wanting to make your money back, your not in this hobby for the right reason.  Especially when it comes to modern day products.  These are built for fun, not investment.

If you’re looking to purchase a box of 2018 Topps Inception, it will likely cost around $76.  Housed inside each box is (1) 7-card pack.  Among those (7) cards will be (1) autograph or autograph/relic, (2) parallels, and (4) base.  The base set comes in at (100) cards with the following parallels: Green, Purple #’ed/150, Magenta #’ed/99, Orange #’ed/50, Blue #’ed/25, Inception Black #’ed/1, and Printing Plates #’ed/1.

Topps has always done a fantastic job when it comes to Inception.  The solid black card stock combined with massive color explosions in the background, and tons of on-card autographs make for some very interesting looking cards.  In fact, Topps has designed these cards so well Panini completely ripped off the look for their Origins football set.

The Silver Signings and pretty much every card containing a patch standout to me.  Many of these patches are quite colorful, and even have some awesome team logos.

Some neat looking stuff!  Here is a complete checklist.

Here is what I pulled:


  • Garrett Cooper RC Orange #’ed/50


  • Zack Greinke Green
  • Clayton Kershaw Green


  • Alex Verdugo RC
  • Keon Broxton
  • Andrew Stevenson RC
  • Lucas Giolito
