2015 Topps Tribute Baseball will arrive with a new configuration and the company promises that the early season product was developed based on input from collectors.

  • 3 sequentially numbered autographed cards
  • 3 sequentially numbered relic cards
  • 1 base parallel numbered to 99 or less

“The iconic Topps Tribute brand has been revamped to incorporate YOUR feedback, suggestions and ideas,” Topps wrote in promotional material for the product.

There will be eight boxes per case.

Among the new features in the high end release, which will likely be in the $275-300 SRP range are:

  • To the Victors; an autographed card distributed only one per case honoring past World Series champions with gold parallels (# to 15), purple numbered to 10 and red numbered 1/1
  • Foundations of Greatness autographed cards focused on the early stages of a player’s career and Rightful Recognition autographed cards centered around a certain career accomplishment
