2024 Topps Tier One Baseball Hobby 6 Box Half Case #2 - PICK YOUR TEAM

Badger Breaks

2024 Topps Tier One Baseball is still very much focused on autographs and memorabilia cards. However, there is one notable change this year — the addition of a traditional base set.

Hobby boxes come with just four cards, two of which are autographs.

2024 Topps Tier One Baseball Checklist Overview

When Tier One debuted in 2011, it joined a growing number of high-end lines. That said, it still included base cards to compliment the deep autographs and memorabilia checklists. When the follow-up arrived a year later, Tier One became solely focused on hits and it remained that way for more than a decade.

Base is back for 2024 with a 100-card set. It’s split into three different sections. Tier 1 leads things off with 20 retired greats. The next 50 cards, Tier 2, are veterans. Thirty rookies wrap things up in Tier 3.

Each level has a variety of foil parallels. Some cards also get the autograph treatment.

Autographs and Memorabilia Cards

When it comes to signatures, Tier One can be counted on for a couple of things. The first is a major focus on hard ink. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t stickers, but on-card dominates. The product also has a deep checklist of signers. Current players, rookies and retired stars are all included at various points. With such a big checklist, expectations should be kept in check as not everyone is a superstar.

Some of the main themes include youth-focused Break Out Autographs, Tier One Talent Autographs and Prime Performers Autographs.

Getting tougher to pull and with more potent checklists are acetate Clear One Autographs and Tier One Autographs.

On the multi-signature front are Dual and Triple Autographs. There are also four scarce Tier One Sluggers Triple Relic Autographs.

Plenty of autographed memorabilia cards are also part of 2024 Topps Tier One Baseball. These start with more standard offerings like Autographed Tier One Relics and Jumbo Relics.

But there are also some major pieces with things like bat knob, bat barrels and jumbo All-Star patches.

Memorabilia kicks off with Tier One Relics. These have a couple of offshoots like Tier One Legends Relics and Tier One Relics Die-Cut, which have cut out letter windows similar to those found in Triple Threads.

Knobs, premium bat pieces, bat grips and jumbo patches are also available.
