2018 Topps UFC Museum Collection Box Break & Review

Happy Holidays!  This time of the year can be very stressful for some people.  Friends and family are coming together.  It can sometimes lead to a lot of clashing.  People you only see once or twice a year may not always get along.  You could build an octagon in the backyard and let them go at it, or simply open a few boxes of 2018 Topps UFC Museum Collection.  Walking away with some nice hits always makes things better.  What better way to bring people together than the memory of an awesome pull.

If you’re a fan of Museum Collection Baseball this year, the UFC counterpart should be right up your alley.  That’s of course if you’re into UFC.  The design from the baseball set carries right over to this one.  The overall layout is similar, but you’ll notice that the cards from the UFC set have a refractor-like finish.  Not something you see done much outside of chrome-stock products.

A nice group of fighters make up the base set and various hits.  The base set consists of (50) fighters.  Parallels include Copper #’ed/159, Gold #’ed/75, Sapphire #’ed/25, Ruby #’ed/8, and Emerald #’ed 1/1.

Lets face it.  Hits are 100% what drive this product.  Its a quick thrill for UFC fans.  Every box comes with (1) pack.  Inside each pack there should be (1) relic, (1) on-card autograph, and (1) autographed relic.

UFC products can offer some interesting looking hits.  The on-card autographs, metal-frame, and patch cards are top notch.  I specifically enjoy the Signature Reebok Logo Signatures.

At around $70 for a box that offers (3) hits, its not that bad.  Longtime UFC collectors, new UFC collectors, and/or those just looking to give a UFC box a try should have fun.

Here is what I pulled:

Auto

  • Henry Cejudo Museum Autograph Redemption

Relic

  • Rose Namajunas Primary Pieces Single Quad Relic #’ed/50

2018 Topps UFC Knockout Box Break & Review

Its been three years since I’ve gotten my hands on a box of UFC Knockout.  The first box of this stuff I opened was in 2015, and I pulled a monster hit.  That Ronda Rousey/Miesha Tate Auto/Relic Booklet #’ed/5 was insane.  It is also one of only a few booklet cards I’ve pulled.  Topps has done really well with it’s line of UFC products.  Boxes of their first UFC product, Round 1, continue to sell for a decent amount.  Upwards of $250 to $300 in most cases.  For a premiere flagship product nine years after it’s debut, I consider that very good.  Sometimes this can happen with new products.  The same thing happened to 2006 Allen & Ginter.

If you’re a UFC fan or just want to open a box full of hits, Knockout is totally the product for you.  Each box comes with (4) packs.  Inside every pack you’ll find (2) hits.  That is a total of (8) hits per box.  A master box goes for about $130.  Considering all the hits you’re guaranteed, that isn’t too bad of a price.

When a product is configured like this, the base set isn’t what most box breakers are after.  With that being said, there is a base set to put together.  It consists of (100) cards.  Parallels that you can pull include Green #’ed/199, Blue #’ed/99, Red #’ed/8, and Gold #’ed 1/1.  You should get (8) parallels in every box.

Outside of the base set and it’s parallels, there is one insert.  These come in the form of Notable Knockouts.  There are (10) cards in this set.  Although they aren’t serial numbered, only (100) copies of each card were printed.  The photos Topps used for these are fairly intense and show a lot of action.

Hits!  Hits!  Hits!  That certainly is the focus of UFC Knockout.  I enjoy the Tier One Autographs signed in gold paint pen.  The AKA Ink set is nice looking too.  I’m a big fan of cards featuring dark backgrounds and paint pen signatures.  Lots of big names.
