2015 Topps Series 2 Jumbo Hobby Box Break

This mid year release is pretty standard from Topps.  Once again, the base set is 350 cards, up from 330 in most recent years.  The box has the same basic configuration as series one.   There are ten packs of fifty cards each.  Each box also advertises one autograph and two relic cards.  Some of these relics are manufactured, but they seem to be very well done. This set marks the first regular series release for the much anticipated Kris Bryant.


This box contained:

2015 Topps Star Wars Rebels Blaster Box Break

This release commemorates much of the first season for Disney XD’s hit Star Wars Rebels. It’s a pretty basic set features images from the series. There are 100 base cards with a rainbow foil parallel. The only inserts on the checklist are Stickers and Tattoos. There are also a rare number of Sketch Cards, which have not been listed. It’s not really a release based on hits, so there are no autographs included.

This break was a blaster box containing six pack, with six cards each, one of which is an insert.

27 Base
3 Rainbow Foil Parallels
5 Stickers
1 Tattoo

2015 Topps Spring Fever Pack Break

We’re going to change it up a little bit with a single pack. The Spring Fever release is a special promotion run by Topps through Hobby Stores. The stores give away these special unmarked packs of Spring Fever cards. The base set is 50 cards, with a few autographs mixed in. It’s a free little extra, but it’s not a bad change of pace.

The silver foil pack contains five cards. This pack contained:

2015 Topps WWE Hobby Box Break

Following in the pattern of recent years, the 2015 wwe release once again follows the style of the regular baseball release for the year.  It gives the set a more main stream feel, rather than just being relegated to the non-sport category.

This was originally advertised with two hits per box, but the box itself does not mention how many.  Each box contains 24 packs of 7 cards, but some hits are thicker, so there may be fewer cards.  Autographs seem to fall roughly one in every two boxes, while the remaining hits consist of shirt, mat, sign and athletic tape relics, along with Diva Kiss Cards.

This box:

This is a pretty standard release from .  The Jumbo Hobby box contains 10 packs of 50 cards with 1 Autograph and 2 relics included.  The biggest thing that stands out to me is there are a lot fewer insert cards in this release than we’ve seen in recently years.  There is plenty of variety, but more base.
