    2015 Topps Fire football hobby box for review


    This Ad will be removed when you a member of sportscardforum.com


    First and foremost, I'd like to thank our sponsors at Topps for providing us with this box.

    Topps again has a edgy design provided by Tyson Beck whose artwork is definitely unique. So, this is a double edge sword as its either a love it or hate it affair.

    Topps Fire has a nice size base set consisting of 150 cards. Cards 1 thru 100 are current and retired players. Rookie cards make up the remaining 50 cards in the set and are inserted at a ratio of 1 per pack. This makes the set easily obtainable for set builders on a budget. Topps Fire also has a slew of parallels for those wishing to put a base set together with a lower print run. The breakdown is as followed:

    Silver (1 per pack)
    Flame (1:4 packs)
    Orange (#'d)
    Green (#'d)
    Onyx (1 per case - Hobby)
    Blue (#/99)
    Purple (#/50)
    Magenta (#/25)
    Inferno (1/1 - Hobby)

    The one thing I wish is that the cards were easier to tell what parallel you hit. As it can be somewhat confusing upon opening your first box. Would it not be simple to alleviate any confusion for collectors by just putting it on the back of the card.

    The autograph contents are quite impressive. There's the normal autographs, rookie patch autographs, and the normal dual and triple auto's. The big hits and highlight if any collector is lucky enough to pull them are Autographed Swoosh Patch, Autographed NFL Shield Patch and Autographed Team Logo Patch. One just needs to look on eBay at some of the crazy prices these can yield.

    In addition there a few insert sets included in each box. They are as followed:

    Into the Wild (30 card set 1:4)
    Forces of Nature (30 cards, 1:10)
    Fired Up cards are one per hobby box with a 10 card set
    Transcendent Touchdowns (25 cards, 1:5) showcase highlight-worthy scoring plays. These can also be found in parallel form.

    Topps Fire delivers either 2 autograph or relics per box.

    Overall 20/25 (80%)
