Product Highlight: 2002 Topps Commemorative Packs Collection

To quote the great Anchorman Ron Burgundy – “I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.”  This is exactly what comes to mind when I think back to the 2002 Topps Commemorative Packs Collection.

Topps consolidated all of their baseball products they released that year into a single product – 2002 Topps Commemorative Packs Collection.  Housed inside this fancy red binder is one pack of each baseball product Topps released in 2002.  That’s (27) total packs which include:

  • 2002 Topps Series 1
  • 2002 Topps Series 2
  • 2002 Topps Traded & Rookies
  • 2002 Topps Chrome Series 1

Each binder is limited to (500) copies.  Binder pages hold up to (4) packs.  A detailed write-up about each pack is also supplied.

The two most valuable packs would be 2002 Topps Tribute: Milestones & Memories Edition and 2002 Topps Pristine.  Those guarantee a relic in every pack.

2019 Topps Museum Collection Baseball Hobby Box Break & Review

BIG HITS!  BIG HITS!  BIG HITS!  That’s what Museum Collection is all about.  Over the years I’ve pulled some incredible looking cards from this product.  2019 Topps Museum Collection did not disappoint.  What a great box!!!

Museum Collection is a high-risk, high-reward product.  That’s of course if you’re thinking solely about making money.  When it comes to modern day cards, making money should never be your #1 concern.  Today’s cards should be thought of as fun, not investments.  Too many products receive an unnecessary bashing because the people opening them didn’t get a high-dollar hit.

At about $200 per box, Museum Collection may not fit everyone’s budget.  Some may settle for just a mini-box.  Every box comes with (4) mini-boxes.  Inside each mini-box you’ll find (1) hit.  (1) on-card autograph, (1) autograph relic, (1) quad relic, and (1) prime relic can be found in every master box.

A 100-card base set is there to put together.  It consists of a mixture of rookies, veterans, and Hall of Famers.  Parallels include Copper, Sapphire #’ed/150, Amethyst #’ed/99, Ruby #’ed/50, and Emerald #’ed 1/1.

This brand is really known for only having one type of insert – Canvas Collection.  For the most part, you’ll likely get (1) Canvas Collection Reproduction insert.  If you get really lucky, there are Canvas Collection OriginalsCanvas Collection Original Player Autographs, and Canvas Collection Originals Shaped Sketches.

Hits that you’ll find include Archival Autographs, Museum Framed Autographs, Superstar Showpieces Autographs, Dual Autographs, Triple Autographs, Single-Player Signature Swatches Dual Relic Autographs, Single-Player Signature Swatches Triple Relic Autographs, Momentous Material Jumbo Patch Autographs, Momentous Material Dual Jumbo Patch Autograph Book, Museum Framed Autograph Patch, Museum Framed Dual Autograph Patch Book, Single-Player Primary Pieces Quad Relics, Single-Player Primary Pieces Quad Relic Legends, Four-Player Primary Pieces Quad Relics, Meaningful Material Relics, Dual Meaningful Material Relics, Momentous Material Jumbo Patch Relics, Museum Memorabilia, and Jumbo Lumber Bat Nameplate Relics.

The Museum Framed Dual Autograph Patch Books are very well done.  I like the look of the metal hinges that hook the cards together.  They remind me of how book cards originally were made when they were first introduced to the hobby.

FYI – The Juan Soto and Pete Alonso cards were in the same pack.  Second pack in from the right.  That’s where all of the good stuff is.
