Coffee Break:2022 Topps Museum Collection Baseball

*it's time to sit down and enjoy a fresh cup of brew, this along with some cards equals some cards over coffee time*

For the sixth year in a row, I am able to try a box of Museum Collection. I have had mixed results with the product so far scoring about a 50% decent hit ratio or 3 out of 6 boxes with at least one good card. Those numbers are rough knowing what these boxes usually cost.

Speaking of cost, this year is even more due to the inflation in the hobby.

Let's hope this box is a good one.

*takes a sip before moving onto the break*

In every box of 2022 Topps Museum Collection there are 4 mini boxes per Master Box. Each box has a hit, and the hits can range from autographs to quad relics to patch cards, etc. NO guarantees other than that, including autographs. Boxes are currently $360.

*takes a sip, begins to rip*

There are 100 cards in the Museum Collection base set.

This includes Veterans,
Rookies (one per master box)

And Legends of the game.

Unlike shiny products, there are only a few parallels in Museum Collection.

These include,
Copper, Sapphire /150, Amethyst /99, Ruby /50, and Emerald 1/1.
Found this Sapphire of the GOAT of baseball, Ken Griffey Jr. It is also numbered 24/150....eBay 1/1.

There is only one, Canvas Collection Reproduction.
Mine was of Juan Soto.

I know this is what you are really here for!
J.T. Realmuto

Miguel Cabrera

Eric Hosmer with a nice patch swatch.

And the big hit of the box, a quad relic featuring the stars of MLB this year.

*takes a sip before finishing up today's post*

Well, for the cost of the box, it was rough even with the quad relic ending. I am a little disappointed that autographs are not guaranteed in every box which also hurts the value. My box isn't the first one I have seen autograph-less.

As for the design and appeal, I think it's still good. The product hasn't changed much design-wise over the years.

  1. Those hits are really nice. Before the year ends, that quad relic is going to feature 4 MVP winners!

  2. That's about as well as you can do with only relics, apart from a 1/1. That said, that's a lot to pay for a box which doesn't guarantee an auto.

  3. This is generally why I don't buy boxes at these current prices anymore. $360 goes a long way for me. I could probably buy the Optic Football (bought it for $110) and Basketball sets and the Topps Chrome Baseball (can get it for about $100 or less) set for $360.

  4. Yep, $360 is way too much, but that that quad relic is awfully nice. Thanks for showing off the cards!

  5. Some pretty cool relics. I've watched a couple Museum Collection box breaks on YT and both had autographs. This is the first with none. But I'd rather have that Trout/Betts/Judge/Harper quad than the autographs I've seen pulled.


Cards and coffee go together like PB&J, so don't you and leaving a comment below. Take a sip and let me know your thoughts!
