(2) 2015 Topps Five Star Baseball Box Break

While attending the Central PA Sports Card Show yesterday I picked up two boxes of 2015 Topps Five Star Baseball.  This was the first time I ever opened a box from the Five Star brand.  In the past, this was a brand that was well out of my price range.  Spending $400.00 – $500.00 for a box of cards was well out of the question.  Topps reconfigured the Five Star Baseball brand for 2015.  The high-quality on-card autograph content is still present, but the amount of “hits” was cut down.  As a result, the price dropped dramatically.  This made the Five Star brand much more affordable to collectors.

These two boxes delivered some great looking cards.  Topps did an awesome job with those Golden Graphs autographs.  The matte black background really makes that gold paint pen signature stand out.

Here is what I pulled:

Autos

  • Jorge Soler RC Auto
  • Micah Johnson RC Auto
  • Roger Clemens Golden Graphs Green Parallel Auto #’ed/15
  • Frank Robinson Gold Parallel Auto #’ed/50

The Five Star brand from Topps is the model that all card products should take after.  At least when it comes to design.  It really doesn’t get much better than Five Star.  I’ve never opened a box of Five Star though mainly because of the price.  Boxes usually cost well into the hundreds.  This year though, Topps has decided to make Five Star Baseball a little more affordable.  Boxes will only have (2) autographs, but the price will be cheaper.  It will probably feel like a high-end version of Supreme.  Look for it in September.
