The high-end brand contains two mini-boxes per master Hobby box. Each mini offers one premium hit. These mini-boxes each showcase a theme, including choices like MVP Award Winners, Topps Rookie Cup Recipients, World Series Champions and Yankees Greats, among others. The cards in each box correspond to the theme.
