Parallel Universe: 2015 Topps pushes the envelope to new heights

Parallel Universe is a recurring feature where we look at (fake) new innovations in baseball cards.

Today we're examining some of the astounding cards available in 2015 Topps.

Here's a neat one:

Wow, 3-D technology sure has come a long way since those Kellogg's cards in the 70s, huh?

One parallel from 2014 Topps that was a big hit with collectors were the acetate parallels. Topps may have went a little too far this year, however...

These acetone parallels may be quite desirable for collectors, #'d /10, but storing them is certain to be a pain.

Finally, recreational marijuana usage may be becoming increasingly accepted in the United States, but still, the "Career High" insert set in 2015 Topps may be ill-advised.

These relics have been selling incredibly well on the secondary market so far.

Well, that's it for this episode. Join us next time, here in... the Parallel Universe....


  1. Man the card stock for those career high hits must taste horrible if you decide to use it in place of a blunt.
    Better have Mr. Bong on standby.

  2. Acetones would be frustrating because they would have to be redemptions.

  3. Likely the best 2015 Topps post I'll read this year. Really

  4. Fantastic. I would flip if I pulled a "GIF card" in real life.

  5. Laughed out loud on this one. The 50 cent gif was awesome, but the "selling well on the secondary market" line just made my night. Thanks, Gavin!
