2015 Topps Platinum Hobby Box: Opened on 4/12/2016


I have been looking for a new set to collect.  After grabbing a couple of retail packs of 2015 Topps Platinum at my local Target I chose this one.  A couple of things attracted me to this set.  I might be in the minority but I like the design, focusing on the player with great action shots and a smoke treatment to the team logo.  And you can never go wrong with silver.  It’s a small 150 card set (plus a 100 card gold set with thick stock) which makes it easy on my compulsive need to complete sets.   So I searched online for the best deal and bought a few boxes.
