2015 Topps Stadium Club

From inception back in the early 90's, Stadium Club has been a product that has prided itself on the quality of their images.  The photography has always been a bit unique, covers the entire card, and is always outstanding.  This variation of Stadium Club is absolutely no different.  It's all about the photos, man.

Each hobby box comes has a two autograph guarantee, which are both on-card (which is awesome).  I'm usually not a snob when it comes to on-card signatures...but, as I get older I am being more selective about on-card vs. sticker.  But, that's just me.

The set itself is a respectable 300 cards with multiple variations of each.  Gold foil, black and white foil, black foil, foil board, Members Only, etc...  Basically, there are variants upon variants in this one.  You'll have to do some digging to see which foil variants are numbered to what.  This was not made clear at the outset.

Seriously though, I came back to Stadium Club for the photography.  Rarely do I like to go back through a box of cards just to look at the pictures.  But, for this one...I can see myself doing just that every couple years or so.  The photos are just rad and unique.

The autograph selection is predictably strong.  It is Topps, you know.  So, the usual subjects will all be represented:  Longoria, Ortiz, Kershaw...blah blah blah.  They are all there.

Stadium Club has inserts galore.  Die Cut, Crystal Ball (WTF?), Triumvirate, True Colors, and 1992 autograph buybacks.  There is a little something for everyone in this set.


Can't Hit The Curve bought a box just for you all.  Broke it open and was pleasantly surprised.  Here's the break down.

2 On Card autos (Marcus Stroman and Arismendy Alcantara black foil #'d to 50)
2 die cut cards (Ted Williams legends, A. Rendon Triumvirate)
11 foil variants (9 - gold foil, 2 -black foil)
Plus...VERY few duplicates, which is nice.

Overall, I have been very pleased with this set.  Great photos (of course), good selection of players, and a wide variety of hits in each box.  In my opinion, you could do much much worse when selecting a box of product to buy.  The price isn't bad, either.

All in all, a good buy.
