2015 Topps Strata Baseball Checklist - Clearly Authentic Autograph Relic

By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

It started as a basic football set with a cool box hit. Then Topps Strata moved over to baseball, but only as a tough insert in flagship sets. Now, it’s something all its own. The 2015 Topps Strata Baseball checklist is straightforward, but it’s not so much the affordable product it originally was. Rather, the 2015 Topps Strata Baseball checklist is another that’s all-hits. Boxes have just two cards per pack — an autograph and a relic.

Layered shadowbox-style cards are a key to much of the cards. Something a little different is that all the Clearly Authentic relics can be tracked to the exact game they were used in. They have an authentication sticker attached from MLB, thus taking away a lot of the vagueness that surrounds many memorabilia cards today.

As far as styles go, 2015 Topps Strata Baseball is one of the most basic of the year. The product is made up of just five types of inserts plus parallels.

The 2015 Topps Strata Baseball checklist is a mix of hobby standouts, good players that might not have a big following, young players and some that will leave a lot of collectors hoping for something better. Player wise, it’s like most every other product in this price range where there are winners and losers.

If you want to know exactly what can be found, the basic 2015 Topps Strata Baseball checklist is below.

    Great idea with the clearly authentic cards being able to be game matched…..however does that mean that those cards/patches that don’t have an authentication sticker are “questionable”???

    • Ryan Cracknell 21 December, 2015 at 01:23

      I think it’s more they know from the exact game the MLB Authentication ones come from — worked with MLB with that in mind from the time the piece was acquired.

  2. Simon Jackson 23 December, 2015 at 04:14

    100% understand that, but does that beg the question of why not do it for all game used gear?

    • Ryan Cracknell 23 December, 2015 at 11:58

      Maybe something to do with existing stock versus new stock. Hopefully there’s been a shift where there’s more documentation when working with MLB to acquire pieces. That added step may not have been there before, just blanket authentication from the league. It would be great if all card companies did this consistently (or all the time).
