2015 Topps UFC Chronicles Trading CardsBrand: Topps UFC
Given the name, it should not be surprising that 2015 Topps UFC Chronicles goes deep into the past and present of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Each hobby box features five total hits and a large amount of inserts and parallels.
The 300-card base set is quite large for a UFC product and goes well with the 40-card packs. Averaging five per pack, the parallels include Silver, Green (#/288), Black and White (#/188), Gold (#/88), Red (#/8) and Sepia (1/1).
Collectors can find several autograph options in 2015 Topps UFC Chronicles. Chronicles Autographs feature 50+ fighters and UFC personalities with additional variety present in Red (#/8) and Sepia (1/1) parallels. Octagon of Honor showcases the truly elite of the sport's history and are numbered to 25. Also limited to 25 copies, Victorious Debut and Fighting Legacy Dual Autographs offer more signed choices.
Combining a signature with a piece of fighter-worn relic, several autograph relics are also available. Chronicles Autographs Relics utilize a vertical layout and include 30+ fighters along with Red (#/8) and Sepia (1/1) parallels. The Autographed Jumbo Fight Mat Relics insert is exactly as it sounds with a sticker autograph and oversized piece of canvas. Numbered to ten, Fighting Legacy Dual Autograph Relics double the signers and relics.
Closing out the hit options in 2015 Topps UFC Chronicles, relics come as either fighter-worn or manufactured. Chronicles Relics include up to 40 fighters with fighter-worn pieces. Red (#/8) and Sepia (1/1) parallels are also available. Chronicles Dual Relics pairs two fighters and relics on the same card and Jumbo Fight Mat Relics opt for large canvas pieces. Lastly, Victorious Debut Manufactured Medallions average one per case and highlight the fighter's method of victory in their first match with a special commemorative medallion.
Not just about the autographs and relics, inserts are plentiful in the release. Four main inserts are available and they average three per pack. Victorious Debut returns from 2009 UFC Round 1 with new fighters that began their careers as winners. Octagon of Honor includes up to 15 all-time greats of UFC, including Hall of Fame members, title holders, The Ultimate Fighter winners and record breakers. Finally, Climbing the Ranks focuses on the future and Fight Poster Review features mini versions of notable fight posters from the past.
2015 Topps UFC Chronicles also looks back in a tangible way with a mix of buybacks. This includes single cards with foil stamps and redemptions for full boxes, packs and sets from previous Topps UFC products.
