2021 Topps Gold Label Baseball Hobby Box Break & Review

Collector Type: Set/Autograph

The base set consists of (100) players. Those (100) players are spread across three different classes – Class 1, Class 2, and Class 3. Class 1 being the easiest cards to pull, and Class 3 being the most difficult. Each Class has the same (100) subjects. The only difference are the photos. If you put the entire set together it would technically be (300) cards.

Class 1 Parallels:

  • Black 1:2
  • Blue #’ed/150
  • Purple #’ed/99
  • Red #’ed/75
  • Gold #’ed 1/1

Class 2 Parallels:

  • Black 1:6
  • Blue #’ed/99
  • Purple #’ed/75
  • Red #’ed/50
  • Gold #’ed 1/1

Class 3 Parallels:

  • Black 1:20
  • Blue #’ed/50
  • Purple #’ed/35
  • Red #’ed/25
  • Gold #’ed 1/1

Autographs include Framed Autographs, Framed Dual Autographs, and Auric Framed Autographs.

Autographed/Relics come in the form of Golden Greats Framed Autograph Jumbo Relics.

Relics include Gold Prospect Relics, and MLB Legends Relics.

Lots of foil and on-card autographs. The metal-framed cards which have been a staple to this brand for some time continue to look great. Every hobby box should contain at least (1) autograph.

One thing I noticed is that the Black parallels seem to be losing their ink. Its really noticeable on the Class 1 Black parallels. Not so much on Class 2 and Class 3. The ink on the front seems to easily leak on to the back of the other cards. Perhaps the ink wasn’t dry enough before the pack out. If picking up singles (especially online) be sure to see all sides of the cards.
