    2016 Topps Tier One baseball hobby box for review

    2016 Topps Tier One baseball hobby box

    Product configuration
    1 packs per box
    3 cards per pack
    2 autographs and 1 relic per box

    Current Retail Price (online): $75 to $105 a box

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

    Thus years Topps Tier One is a swing for the fence kind of product. You're guaranteed 3 hits to be exact with 2 autographs and one relic per box. No need to worry about pulling any base cards as its for those looking to go whale hunting.Though some hot boxes will have a additional relic for those lucky enough. We all know that extra hit can be a life saver. Just be prepared to not hit a Grand Slam in a box or two as the odds are stacked against you for some of the nicer hits bat barrels, autographed limited Lumber, gold autographs, etc. Even if you do hit a hard to pull piece of (eye candy) we all know it's meaningless if its not the right player. So take a look at the preliminary checklist out there. If you're still concerned wait til Topps puts one up on their website.

    Topps Tier One Focuses mostly on autograph content. Some of the following autographs one will encounter might be:
    Tier 1 Autograph (#'ed to 99 or less)
    Breakout Autographs (#'ed to 299)

    Copper Ink (#'ed to 25)
    Silver Ink (#'ed to10)
    Gold Ink (1 of 1)
    Clear One Autographs (20 cards - #'ed to25)
    Dual Autographs (15 cards - #'ed to 25)
    Triple Autographs (5 cards - #'ed to10)
    1 of 1 Cut Signatures.

    The relic auto combination out there are:
    Signature Tools Autograph Relics (50 cards - 1 of 1)
    Autographed Tier One Relics (#'ed to 99)
    Dual Patch (#'ed to 25)
    Triple Patch (1 of 1)

    Autographed Prodigious Patches (Base #'ed to 10; Platinum Parallel #'ed to 5)
    Autographed Limited Lumber (1 of 1)
    Cut Signature Relics (10 cards - 1of 1)

    Memorobilia hits out there are:
    Tier One Relics (75+ cards, #'ed to 399 or less)
    Tier One Relics Legends (15+ cards, #'ed 99 or less)
    Dual Swatch (#'ed to 50 or #'ed to 25)
