2014 Topps Museum Collection Baseball CardsBrand: Topps Museum Collection
Now in its third season, 2014 Topps Museum Collection Baseball continues to focus on high-end hits. Every pack has either an autograph or a relic card with four-pack boxes promising an autographed relic, an autograph, a jumbo relic and a quad relic.
But it's not all autographs and memorabilia. The 2014 Topps Museum Collection Baseball base set has 100 cards. Although there are plenty of current stars, the set has retired greats and Hall of Famers as well. The base set has four parallels: Copper, Green (#/199), Blue (#/99) and Red (1/1). Every pack has three base cards and one parallel.
Basic autographs in 2014 Topps Museum Collection carry the Archival Autographs name. All are signed on-card and come numbered to 399 or less. With more than 70 signers, the checklist is large. While that's a ton of variety, collectors shouldn't expect every autograph to be a Hall of Famer or future Cooperstown inductee. Single-signed cards have Gold and Sepia (#/5) parallels. There are also multi-signed Dual Archival Autographs (25 cards, #/15) and Triple Archival Autographs (five cards, #/5).
Framed Museum Collection Autographs return. Inserted one per case, cards come with a silver signature. They also have a metal frame that comes in three different colors: Gold (#/15), Silver (#/10) and Black (#/5). Every 12-box case has a Museum Collection Autograph.
Extremely rare, 2014 Topps Museum Collection Baseball also has 20 different Cut Signatures. Each is numbered 1/1.
All autographed relics come with either multiple relic pieces or a jumbo swatch. Single-Player Signature Swatches Dual Relic and Triple Relic cards are all numbered to 299 or less. Parallels are either Gold (#/25) or Patch (#/5).
Canvas Collection returns giving featured players an artistic interpretation. Every box has one of 50 different Reprints. Original pieces of one-of-one artwork are inserted under the Canvas Collection Originals banner. Single-Player Primary Pieces Quad Relic Autographs are book cards that have four memorabilia pieces and are numbered to 10. Every case includes a Momentous Material Jumbo Relic Autograph. Numbered to 10, there are more than 75 players in the set. Basic versions are numbered to 10. Parallels include Gold (#/5) and Emerald (1/1). It is worth noting that while all basic autographs in 2014 Topps Museum Collection Baseball are signed on-card, autographed relics have stickers.
Momentous Material Jumbo Relics have more than 100 players in the set. Numbered to 50, each has a massive piece of game-used memorabilia. There are also three parallels, none numbered higher than 35. Momentous Material Dual Jumbo Relics (30 cards, #/5) have pieces from two players. Momentous Material Jumbo Patch Relics (50 cards, #/5) use large patch pieces. Momentous Material Laundry Tag Relics is a set of 250 one-of-ones showcasing one of the most recognizable parts of a game-used jersey.
More than 50 players have Jumbo Lumber Relics. As the name suggests, these focus on game-used bats. Basic versions are numbered to 25 while three parallels are limited to 10 copies or less. Dual Jumbo Lumber Relics (#/5) double up the players using a book card format. Jumbo Lumber Bat Nameplate Relics have the personalized portion from the front of a bat.
