2017 Topps UFC Chrome Box Break & Review

A new product walked into the octagon this year in the form of 2017 Topps UFC Chrome.  Never before have UFC cards received the Topps Chrome treatment, and man do these cards look great.  Lets see what I found inside.

The first thing you’ll notice is that the 100-card base set features the 2017 Topps Baseball flagship design.  Topps made sure to include a good mix of rookie and veteran fighters.  If you’re a fan of parallels, this product is perfect for you.  I pulled a ton!  Parallels of the base set include Refractors, X-Fractors, Diamond Refractors (Hot Box), Green Refractors #’ed/99, Blue Wave Refractors #’ed/75, Gold Refractors #’ed/50, Orange Refractors #’ed/25, Black Refractors #’ed/10, Red Refractors #’ed/5, SuperFractors #’ed/1, and Printing Plates #’ed/1.

Each 24-pack box comes with (2) autographs.  (3) if its a Hot Box.  A large chunk of the autographs are signed on-card, but you will come across some stickers.  As I’m sure you already know, Topps loves their photo variations.  This product has them, but they only pertain to eight fighters, are all autographed, and are serial numbered to (10) copies.  SuperFractor parallels are also available.  Its safe to say these photo variations aren’t difficult to spot.  Easy to identify, but hard to pull.

Inserts offer a glimpse as to what certain products would look like if they were printed on chrome stock.  FireMuseum CollectionTop of the Class, and Tier 1 all got chromed.  I think Fire looks the best.  All come with their good share of parallels and autographs.  Perhaps one day we’ll see a standalone Fire Chrome set.

I’d say that it was an enjoyable break.  With the refractors, Topps Chrome always gives you something to look forward to.  Hobby-exclusive boxes are selling for $70.  Low-numbered parallels and autographs of Conor McGregor and Ronda Rousey are big sellers.  A McGregor/Mayweather dual on-card autograph would have been totally sick to see.

2015 Topps UFC Chronicles Box Break & Review

 photo 15toppsufcchronbox_zpsqxmdsijj.jpg

You’ll need a forklift to pickup a box of this stuff.  There’s (400) cards in this box.  UFC collectors who enjoy putting sets together should have a fun time with 2015 Topps UFC Chronicles.  The base set comes in at a massive (275) cards.  That’s got to be one of the largest base sets for any UFC product they’ve released.  Throughout this product Topps will take you on a journey through the history of the UFC.

The base set design reminds me a lot of what we saw with 2015 Topps UFC Knockout.  Chronicles has a bit more of a border to them.  I’m glad to see that Topps kept with the matte background and glossy fighter photos.  That’s always been a good look.  The photos Topps used are top notch too.  Lots of action.  Parallels include Silver, Green, Black/White, Gold, Red, Sepia, and Blank Backs.

On-card signatures would make the overall look of any of the autographs better.  Pretty much everything is signed on stickers using white boxes.  From a visual perspective the best looking autographs would have to be the ones from the Octagon Of Honor insert set.  The stickers don’t stand out quite as much because of the fading effect Topps used on the photos.

I like the Victorious Debut Manufactured Medallions the most.  These come (1) per case and contain an octagon shaped medallion.  Boxes are configured in a jumbo format.  You’ll find (10) packs per box with each pack housing (40) cards.
