2015 Topps Tribute Baseball Special Edition preview

2015 Topps Tribute Baseball Special Edition is sort of a “make good” for the recalled 2015 Topps Tribute Baseball release (you can still buy boxes from us). The damaged and smeared autograph cards that were returned to Topps have been corrected and resigned as well as slabbed. Topps has also added a few things, including rookie autographs of Kris Bryant and Carlos Correa and bonus memorabilia cards.

The configuration for Tribute Special Edition has been designed specifically for case breakers (including our own DACW Live) with 24 autographs per 12-pack box, 30 memorabilia cards (36 in special hot boxes) and six base cards numbered to 99 or less.


The base card set for 2015 Topps Tribute has four levels of parallels numbered to 99 or less plus one-of-one printing plates.


2015 Topps Tribute Baseball boasts a large collection of autographed cards. The most basic of these cards are Tribute Autographs with on-card signatures from veteran and retired players. Tribute Autographs also have seven levels of sequentially numbered parallels, including Green (#’d to 99), Orange (#’d to 75), Black (#’d to 50), Gold (#’d to 25), Purple (#’d to 10), Red (#’d 1/1) and Onyx (#’d 1/1) plus one-of-one Printing Plates.


Topps has included two new series of autograph cards in 2015 Tribute. Foundations of Greatness uses photos from the early years of the careers of baseball stars from the past and present. Rightful Recognition highlights career milestones of the greats of the game. The checklists for each set are nearly identical to allow collectors the chance to find “then and now” autographs from each player. Both sets of autograph cards come sequentially numbered to 189 with four levels of parallels numbered to 50 or less.


To The Victors Die-Cut Autographs fall one per box and recognize players that have won the World Series. Look for Gold (#’d to 15), Purple (#’d to 10) and Red (#’d 1/1) parallels.


Eccentric Eye Black autograph cards return with an eye-black stickers joined by a player signature. Basic cards are numbered to five and there are one-of-one Red parallels.


2015 Topps Tribute Baseball also features a large array of memorabilia cards. Tribute Relics and Diamond Cuts contain jersey swatches from both current and retired MLB stars, and are numbered out of 199. The relic pieces on Diamond Cuts are die-cut in the shape of a baseball diamond. Both sets have numbered parallel versions, including patch parallels that numbered to 25 or less. Prime Patches feature jersey swatches from both veterans and retired players and are sequentially numbered out of 45. Milestone Relics contain pieces of game-used baseballs from memorable MLB games. These come numbered to ten with the chance to find one-of-one Red Jumbo autograph parallels.
