2014 Topps Tribute box

Today I attended a show in Hickory, NC. My biggest purchase, and one I had not planned on going in, was a box of 2014 Topps Tribute. In this new year I have shifted my collecting goals and subsequently my buying habits. I am cutting out nearly all retail purchases so that I can budget more money to hobby boxes and singles. With the large portion of my paychecks that I was previously dropping on retail, this change is letting me be able to buy more high end stuff like this. So far I am very happy with my choice. 

I bought this box from the same dealer that I bought one pack of Tribute from back at a show over Thanksgiving weekend. Here are the parallels and hits from my box.

Base gold

Base blue

Tribute Titans sepia relic

Tribute to the Throne blue relic

Tribute Traditions auto

Tribute to the Pastime sepia auto

Tribute pink auto

Tribute Traditions green auto

BOOM!!! The rest of the box was ok. Nothing amazing. But this...well I was very happy to pull this.

The Ryan, Johnson and Griffey cards are not for trade. The rest are available for trade for something comparable.


  1. Best box ever. Literally. Love those Rangers.

  2. Wow! That was an awesome box! Looks like skipping retail is paying off for you!
