2017 Topps Tier One Box Break & Review

Don’t you hate it when you keep pulling cards of that amazing rookie?  This dude Aaron Judge keeps following me.  I guess there could be worse problems to have 🙂  I’ve never pulled so many cards of a hot rookie in my life.  My jaw literally dropped after opening this box.  Another awesome pull from a Topps product.

Tier One doesn’t mess around with base cards, short prints, and photo variations.  It gets straight to the point quickly.  Boxes are on the high-end costing about $140.  Inside each box you should find (2) autographs and (1) relic.  Some boxes will come with a bonus “hit”.

Given that there really isn’t a base set, 2017 Topps Tier One is broken down into the following areas:

  • Tier One Autographs
  • Dual Autographs
  • Triple Autographs
  • Break Out Autographs
  • Clear One Autographs
  • Cut Signature
  • Cut Signature Relics
  • Prime Performers Autographs
  • Prodigious Patches
  • Prodigious Patches Autographs
  • Signature Tools Autographed Relics
  • Tier One All-Star Patches
  • Tier One Bat Knobs
  • Tier One Autographed Bat Knobs
  • Tier One Limited Lumber
  • Tier One Autographed Limited Lumber
  • Tier One Relics
  • Tier One Legends Relics
  • Tier One Autographed Relics
  • Tier One Dual Autographed Booklet Relics

For the most part, autographs are on-card.  Cards signed in paint pen continue to be my favorite.  All of these cards look really great.  Many products on the market today are high risk and reward.  Tier One is probably at the top of that list.  The 2017 rookie class is packed with fantastic players.  Some of the best we’ve seen in years.  Box prices this year are reflecting that.

Here is what I pulled:


  • Aaron Judge Break Out RC Auto #’ed/140
  • Mark Mulder Prime Performers Auto #’ed/300


  • Albert Pujols Tier One Jersey #’ed/331
  • Luke Weaver Tier One Jersey #’ed/331

2016 Topps Tier One Baseball Box Break

Yet another box break from the 2016 National.  I purchased all my boxes from Marty’s Sports Card Exchange.  His prices were the most reasonable, and he always knocks a few more dollars off.

Here is what I pulled:


  • Aaron Nola Breakout Auto #’ed/299
  • Lucas Duda Prime Performers Auto #’ed/249
