(2) 2021 Topps Tier One Baseball Hobby Box Break & Review

Collector Type: Autograph/Relic/Risk Taker

If you’re looking for another quick break that boosts the number of hits per box 2021 Topps Tier One is right up your alley.

Forget about putting a base set together, because there isn’t one. Tier One is all about the hits. Inside each box you’ll find (1) pack housing (3) cards – (2) autographs and (1) relic. Its common for a few boxes per case to have an extra hit.

Small boxes like this focused mainly on the hits can be hit or miss. Some boxes have the potential to have major pulls, while others are a bit more down to earth. Its always a gamble, especially with today’s premium prices.

Patches, bat barrels, bat knobs, and on-card autographs are what truly drive this brand. Some cards contain sticker autographs, but for the most part they are hard signed. I’ve pulled very few paint-pen signatures in the past, and was lucky to pull one this time. When I think of Tier One paint-pen autographs are the first thing to pop in my head. Dark backgrounds, animated signatures, and color ink really makes these autographs pop.

Autographs include Break Out, Clear One, Dual Clear One, Next Level, Prime Performers, Tier One, Tier One Talent, Dual Autographs, Triple Autographs, and Cut Signatures.

Autograph/Relics include Autograph Tier One Relics, Dual Autograph Tier One Relic Book, Autographed Prodigious Patches, Perfect Contact Autographed Bat Relics, Signature Tools Autograph Relics, Tier One Autographed Bat Knobs, Tier One Autographed Limited Lumber, Tier One Autographed Uniform Button Relics, and Cut Signatures Relics.

Relics include Prodigious Patches, Tier One, Tier One Legends, Tier One Uniform Button, Tier One Bat Knobs, and Tier One Limited Lumber.

Opening Tier One by the case or joining a group break might yield the best overall results. As mentioned before, individual boxes can be hit or miss. Luckily this year’s rookie class has a lot of potential which can help balance out most boxes.

2019 Topps Tier One Baseball Box Break & Review

Why mess with a winning formula?  Topps Tier One has and probably always will be a quick-thrill break.  Some people enjoy ripping pack after pack, while others want to go straight to the hits.  Trust me.  This one goes right to the good stuff.

Packaged inside every box is one pack.  Inside that pack you should find three cards – (2) autographs, and (1) relic.  I’ve noticed that some breakers have been known to get lucky and pull an additional fourth hit.  Its not something that happens all of the time, but a possibility.

The major elements that draw collectors to this brand so much are the vast majority of on-card autographs and jumbo patches.  To be fair, there are some sticker signatures in here like when it comes to the Autographed Tier One Relics.  But for the most part, on-card autographs are what you’re going to pull.

Cards that you can find include Tier One Autographs, Break Out Autographs, Mystery Break Out Autographs Redemption, Clear One Autographs, Clear One Dual Autographs, Prime Performers Autographs, Tier One Talent Autographs, Dual Autographs, Triple Autographs, Cut Signatures, Autographed Tier One Relics, Dual Autographed Tier One Relic Books, Autographed Prodigious Patches, Autographed Tier One All-Star Patches, Autographed Tier One Bat Knobs, Autographed Tier One Limited Lumber, Autographed Tier One Uniform Button Relics, Signature Tools Autographs Relics, Cut Signature Relics, Tier One Relics, Tier One Legends Relics, Prodigious Patches, Tier One All-Star Patches, Tier One Bat Knobs, Tier One Limited Lumber, and Tier One Uniform Button Relics.

As a Phillies fan, I’d like to see the Chase Utley Bat Knob Relic.  Those Bat Knob and Limited Lumber bat barrel cards have always been eye catchers.  Phillies outfielder Odubel Herrera has a nice big signature that stands out on these cards too.

Making your money back and/or striking it rich should never be your #1 goal when opening modern day boxes of cards.  Have fun!  If a box is too expensive, pickup some singles for your collection.
