Let's check out the inaugural debut!
In every hobby box of 2018 Topps Museum Collection UEFA Champions League is one pack of 8 cards. Each box comes with three hits and the breakdown should be an Autograph, Autograph Relic,Relic and even a Base Parallel. Each box is roughly $120 and under.
You expect beauty when it comes to Museum base cards and that's exactly what you get. Black outer border with a touch of rainbow foil on the inside border and featured player. I tried to capture them the best I could.
The base card set is 75 cards with all the big names including, Pepe, Messi and Ronaldo. With only four base per box it could take awhile to build the set.
With all products, we find ourselves looking at parallels. Each box comes with one and mine was a Sapphire that is numbered to 75. You can define the parallels by the obvious numbering or the inner border.
Other parallels are Gold /50, Ruby /25, and Emerald 1/1.
Without inserts, we are going straight to the meat of the product. The Hits baby!
Most hits will have the following parallels, Sapphire /75, Gold /50, Ruby /25, and Emerald 1/1.
Just like with the base cards, the hits look great as well. My first hit is Meaningful Materials of Kyle Walker.
My next hit is a Wojciech Szczesny autograph. Cool looking card in design and the rainbow foil is an added nice touch.
And that wasn't the end of Wojciech Szczesny in this box, my final pull was his autograph again. This time it was a Momentous Material autograph.
Other hits not found in my box but could be in yours includes,
- Museum Autograph Relics
- Archival Autographs
- Archival Dual Autographs
- Framed Autographs
- Road to Kiev Autographs
- Single-Player Triple Relic Autographs
- Momentous Material Jumbo Relics
- Momentous Material Prime Patch Relic
- Single-Player Triple Relics
OVERALL: Tough pulling two autographs of the same player in a box, well, unless it's Messi or Ronaldo. The design stays true throughout the product and that's nice to see since it was well done. Finding sticker autographs for some in a $100+ product is tough for some, like I have said before, I don't mind them that much.
I think fans of UEFA will be pleased overall however with this product and there is solid value in here with some big name hits waiting to be found.
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 the Fantasy Baseball contest! Follow Topps on all social media sites and check out their website HERE for cards and more!
