Topps Museum Collection - M L B

4 Mini boxes and 5 cards per mini box
"Every Box contains 1 on card auto, 1 auto'd relic, 1 quad relic and 1 jumbo relic"

I received the following:

11 unique base cards - no dupes - :)

This is a premium issue, but it really doesn't 'feel' like a premium issue. The cards are printed on a thick - but light-wieght - stock. The photography is sharp and the images look excellent. The front has gold foil and a semi gloss finish. The reverse has personal stats, professional stats, and a synopsis of the player's career. Only receiving 11 base cards, one might have a small hill to climb as far as completing the base set.

Museum Collection - this is a good issue for the player collector - not so much for the set builder. One will have a number of parallels to chase as well as numbered relics and auto'd relics. I have checked with a store or 2 here in Orlando and the retail on a box is now running in excess of $200. I can say that I believe this is a good value at $100 to $125 per box, just a little steep at $200+ - but having said that, folks are still buying the boxes. Ain't America and our capitalist society great??

I really like the on card auto - blue Sharpee - it looks fantastic. The 2 patches also look great and the card(s) are designed for the thicker patch - very well done.

The Canvas Collection - cool looking card - I wish I had received more of them.

Overall grade B++ cards 'feel' too light weight...

Go buy several boxes and send the Rays cards, parallels, and relics to me!!

Sounds good, would you like any of the above cards listed in return? Sorry I am running a bit low on tradebait right now.

Nice review, I would be interested in trading for the Votto's (that quad is a beauty). Anything in particular you're looking for?

Wow, those cards are beautiful. I could use any available Giants (of course I am not talking about the Belt) or Lance Berkman. Your reviews are well done, thanks for sharing....
