Topps Stadium Club - 2014 M L B

3 mini boxes - 6 packs per mini - 5 cards per pack
'1 on-card auto in every mini box!'

I received these:

76 base cards - 38% of the 200 card base set



The return of Stadium Club!! As in the past, Stadium Club are full bleed high definition photos - and they look fantastic. The front has silver foil imprint - name and team name. The reverse is designed great - a different small pic of the player (different from the front shot), a highlight of the player's career, and his 2013 stats and career stats.

Stadium Club is a great set for the set builder and the player collector. With only 200 cards in the base set, one should be able to build the set with just 3 master boxes - or at least be close enough to trade for the remainder.



Also included in the base set are some black and white shots of players of yore - Ruth, Cobb, Banks, Aaron, Robinson - to name a few, PLUS other players - such as IRod, and Belle. These are excellent additions to the set to continue the rich history of baseball.

Inserts

Silver and Gold Parallels



2 'silver' parallels - Bautista and Cargo -- I am not 100% sure these are 'silver' parallels - the foil seems to be reflective - no markings on the card to say for sure.
1 Gold - Julio Teheran - Gold foil (no numbering i.e. #ed to 100 etc...)

Beam Team and Field Access



1 Beam Team - Scherzer
3 Field Access - Maddux, Kershaw, Griffey Jr.

Die Cuts



Future Stars - Wacha
Luminous - Wainwright
Legends - Koufax

Autos



Eric Johnson
Jean Segura
Rafael Montero

All 'on-card' blue Sharpee autos - look fantastic! The cards are designed for the autos with a lighter box on the bottom of the card - well done.

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

As usual, I really like the die cuts - they are my favorite insert, followed closely by the Beam Team insert.

One gripe - number the inserts - mark the inserts - S - silver, G - gold, B - bronze, etc - help us out here a little bit.

I purchased another box and received a refractor parallel #ed to just 25 - easy to spot.

Overall grade A -- glad to see Stadium Club back on the shelves!

Go buy several master boxes and send the - non-playoff below .500 - Rays to me!

Duane, Lots of di-cuts it looks like. Are these high price range? Can use any Mets especially that nice Montero auto. I do like the almost-pure look of the card with pics to the edge and just writing on the bottom. Thanks

Price range - here in O'do, the boxes run about $115. I'll see how many Mets I have. You may have the Montero auto.

Whoa, a bit pricey for me. I appreciate the help with the Montero/Mets. I'll have to keep an eye out and trade for any other Mets. I'll check and see if I've gotten any new Rays since the last ones I sent. Mike

Thanks for the review Duane. Stadium club is my favorite looking cards every year. I love the full bleed action photos. Please LMK if you pulled any of these.
