2014 Topps Museum Collection Baseball Cards Box Break Recap And Review

Topps Museum Collection Baseball cards have quickly become a collector favorite.  2014 Topps Museum Collection Baseball doesn’t disappoint, providing sharp design and a nice variety of great looking hits, and a cohesive set that does justice to it’s Museum moniker.

Museum Collection fits nicely into our Premium Cards category.  Each Master Box contains 4 mini-boxes with 5 cards per mini.  Each Master Box will contain 1 on-card autograph, 1 autograph relic, 1 quad relic, and 1 jumbo relic.

Here are the cards we pulled from our box.

Prince Fielder, Yu Darvish, Jim Rice 
 Alex Cobb, Josh Hamilton, Felix Doubront
Mark McGwire, Ivan Rodriguez, Didi Gregorius 

 Color Base Parallels

Overall Look
These base cards are Museum quality with sharp with stylish bordering. The entire set, from base cards to hits, does justice to the Museum theme.

Quality and Variety of Players
This year’s checklist once again strikes a nice balance between proven talent, retired stars and upcoming rookies.

Do the Hits satisfy?
There are some monster hits to be pulled.  With on card autographs, dual autos and auto relics of some of the legends of baseball available, there is a lot of good that can come out of these boxes.  Pull an original artwork piece, which this year are true 1/1s, and you have could have another huge hit on your hands. 

Will you keep coming back for more?
Museum Collection falls in line with expectations of a high risk, high reward product, perhaps even leaning towards exceeding expectations.  There is enough here to entice collectors to make additional purchases.  Buying by the case seems to be a better proposition if you are looking to increase your chances of hitting it big or you could just get luckily and pull the case hits, as we did, on our first box.

4 1/2 out of 5

2014 Topps Museum Collection Baseball is worthy of its name.
