2015 Topps Update Jumbo Hobby Box Break

The Topps Update set is an old favorite from this time of year.   You expect to see a lot of mid season rookies and players who are traded.  It has a pretty good selection, but some major names, like Schwarber, are curiously missing.  I suppose it is just an effort to keep some rookies in series one next winter.

Another major change you find this year is the expansion of the base set to 400 cards, after many years at 330.  Even series 1 and series 2 were only 350 cards each this year.  One thing that really stands out to me this year, involves the stamped buyback cards in the packs.  I like the idea, but it seems like they should really up their game a bit.  I realize some of these are are 55+ years old, but I’d still hope they would at least not have rips through the cards and other serious damage.  It’s fun to pull an old card, but it loses quite a bit when it looks like it was pulled out of a garbage pile.


The box has the standard configuration for jumbos featuring ten packs of 50 cards each.
