REVIEW:2017 Topps UFC Museum Collection

Hard hitting UFC makes it's appearance again for 2017 Topps Museum Collection.

It used to be just a standalone insert, but went full time product in 2016 and carried it's popular momentum into 2018.

What did this years product look like and how did I do, well, read on.

Each box of 2017 Topps Museum Collection UFC, you will find one pack with 8 cards per pack. You will also find two parallels and three hits for five of those cards. Boxes are currently running for $90.

The base set takes on the baseball design from last year with a clean black background with a featured fighter and silver border. The base set is only 50 cards but with three cards per pack that are base, it would take some effort to build still.

As with any product, there are parallels to chase. There are Copper /109, Gold /75 (below), Sapphire (below) /50, Ruby #/25, and Emerald 1/1. These are easily defined by the border color change.

With this being a mainly hit product, there are no inserts. So let's see what I pulled.
Most hits have patch parallels of Gold /25 and Emerald 1/1.

Single-Fighter Primary Pieces Quad Relic Legends. These include multiple pieces and can come as really nice patch parallels.

Single-Fighter Signature Swatches Relic. Another well done design hit. He has a very unique autograph as well.

Museum Autographs look really sharp with on-card autos jumping out at you. They have parallels also that are defined by the color behind the fighter. These include, Copper /25 (below), Gold /10, and Emerald 1/1.
Other hits not found in my box but could be in yours include,
  • Museum Dual Autograph
  • Museum Collection Framed Autographs (case hit)
  • Meaningful Material Relics
  • Museum Memorabilia Set
  • Single-Fighter Primary Pieces Quad Relics
  • Four-Fighter Primary Pieces Quad Relics
  • Single-Fighter Signature Swatches Dual Relic Autographs
  • Single-Fighter Signature Swatches Triple Relic Autographs
  • Single-Fighter Signature Swatch Reebok Logo Autographs 
Here is the full checklist for 2017 Topps UFC Museum Collection HERE.

OVERALL: Nice looking product, which is what you come to expect from the Museum Collection line, and some pretty decent hits in this box including the nice bronze Pettis. I don't think the price point is too terrible for a higher end hit based product with plenty of big hits to find. See what I did there.

I think if you are a UFC collector you will be pretty happy with this product whether buying boxes or singles.

Please take a minute out to thank Topps for providing the box to review. Some of the cards you see above will be included in my Fantasy Baseball contest! Follow Topps on all social media sites and check out their website HERE for cards and more! 


  1. This year's Museum Collection set looks really nice. I've already picked up a couple cards of fighters I collect. I especially like those silver ink autographs.

    Thanks to Topps for providing the review box, and to you for posting about it!

  2. Topps UFC Museum Collection is always a winner in my book. I really enjoy the on-card autographs. I'm debating on doing a reverse box break of this product.
