The Addiction is real: 2015 Topps Stadium Club

Stumbled into Target today at lunch to see if they had loose packs of archives since I feel like nothing good ever comes out of rack packs - rack packs are evil - and saw what do you know - rack packs of 2015 Stadium Club. Of course I buckled and bought one...


I have a different definition of value than Topps - 12 cards for $5.99 is ridiculous but I had to see these so I guess they know we're all suckers.


My first card of the boy wonder - Kris Bryant. I absolutely love this years design.
Full bleed: CHECK
Simple design: CHECK
Great Photos: CHECK


Pulled this sweet Jackie insert seeded at 1:16 packs, not bad.



More great photos of a couple Hall of Famers. Sox fans who's that in the photo with Fisk?
























More great photos, the card stock is also nice and sturdy compared to Archives especially. I will probably not buy much retail because of the price but I love this set and will probably try to complete it once they pop up in lots on Ebay.


Rack packs are still evil.

  1. That's Hall of Famer Tom "Terrific" Seaver with Carlton Fisk. These look really good. I am going to try to resist the temptation to buy any until this weekend.

    1. Wow, now I feel dumb.. guess it makes it a double HOFer card though. I'm already itching to go buy a blaster...

    2. Seaver's time with the Sox was pretty short - I think of him with the Mets or the Reds more than the South Siders.

  2. I'm glad they made the initial hobby box price much more reasonable. Last year they asked for $100 box, but that price almost got cut in half because the auto list was very weak. That was a huge win for most of the bloggers because people were opening left and right. I think I opened 4 boxes!

    This years set looks like it picked up where last years left off. I need to make a Target run soon!

    I rarely buy rack packs anymore. I just automatically assumed that everything has been searched.

    1. Pack searchers should be burned! I saw about $60-70 for a hobby box.

  3. The more I see of this set, the more I love it. I've been scouring Ebay for images of the base cards these last couple days, but hadn't seen the Utley yet. What a masterpiece. Another home run for Stadium Club.

    1. Agreed on the Utley - a player I don't like in a park who's team I hate but it's a brilliant card.

  4. Set. Of. The. Year. I could see this coming from 6 months away. Of course, watch the last half of the set being SP'd to Pluto.

  5. As always, beautiful cards! Just bought the Dale Murphy card last night- now all I need is the Chipper and Andrelton!

    1. Love that Murphy, have you seen the Maddux? It's just him golfing but I gotta have it
