For a nice preview/review of what 2014 Topps Strata has to offer we suggest checking out Sports Collectors Daily for their well done article on Strata. At the most basic level 2014 Topps Strata offers three hits per box, an autographed relic, an autograph and a relic. The clear reason to open this product is to find shadowboxes, the many fantastic looking parallels of the RPA such as the rivet card which fans out to reveal all of the separate layers of the card, seen below.
With 50 Rookies on the checklist it’s not a particularly deep set, but deep enough to get all of the big names. The RPA, called Clear Cut Autographed Relic, has many parallels but also has dual booklet versions that are quite popular with collectors. The Strata Quad Autograph Book Card offers another chase which features FOUR rookie autographs and is numbered 1/1.
