2019 Topps Luminaries Baseball Hobby Box Break & Review

How could I possibly forget the day when Luminaries arrived on the scene.  It was during the fall of 2017.  Upon opening my box I found a redemption card waiting for me.  That redemption card was for a Frank Thomas Autographed Letter Patch Book #’ed 1/1.  One of the best pulls of my life.  I immediately redeemed it, and within a matter of weeks it arrived.

In 2018 Luminaries moved to a summer release.  From that box I pulled a Ozzie Smith Autograph #’ed/15.

Sticking to a late summer release, Luminaries makes it’s return for 2019.  This product is for the real gamblers out there.  Packaged inside each box is (1) card.  That card is guaranteed to be an autograph or autograph/relic numbered to (15) or less.

As of this writing a box will cost $220.

Hits come in a variety of forms – Hit Kings Autographs, Home Run Kings Autographs, Masters of the Mound Autographs, Lighting the Way Dual Autographs, Hit Kings Autograph Relics, Hit Kings Autograph Patches, Home Run Kings Autograph Relics, Home Run Kings Autograph Patches, Masters of the Mound Autograph Relics, Masters of the Mound Autograph Patches, Lighting the Way Dual Autograph Relics, Hit Kings Autograph Patch Dual Book, Hit Kings Ultra Book, Hit Kings Ultimate Book, Home Run Kings Autograph Patch Dual Book, Home Run Kings Autograph Patch Triple Book, Home Run Kings Ultra Book, Home Run Kings Ultimate Book, Masters of the Mound Autograph Patch Dual Book, Masters of the Mound Ultra Book, The Greatest Book, Letters Autograph Book, Cut Signatures, Cut Signature Relics, Cut Signature Bat Knob Book, and Lighting the Way Autograph/Cut Signature Book.

Its quite the gamble for $220.  Then again, if all you’re doing is opening these boxes for the money you’re not in this hobby for the right reasons.  If the box price is too high and you’re a player collector picking up singles on the secondary market might be your best way to go.  Quick-thrill.  Lots of potential big hits.
