The Basics: Each case will include one Tier One Autograph and there will be Hot Boxes that add a second Relic with this release, which does not yet have a firm street date. … On the autograph front, there are a number of numbered auto cards that will have Copper (/25), Silver (/10) and 1/1 Gold ink parallels. Those sets are Prime Performers, Tier One Autos and Break Out Autos, while there also will be dual- and triple-auto cards that also will be numbered. A selection of cut autos (/TBD) and Clear One autos (/5) also will be in the mix.
There will be seven auto Relic sets to be found here, including Tier One Relics with dual-patch (/25) and 1/1 triple-patch auto parallels as well as Dual Auto Relic Books that will spotlight two players and be limited to only 10 copies with a 1/1 patch parallel. Also in the mix will be Prodigious Patches, Autographed Bat Knobs, Limited Lumber autos, Signature Tools and Cut Signature Relics. Each of these will be 1/1 creations.
For unsigned Relics there also will be seven different sets. Standard and Legends Relics will be numbered with dual (/25) and triple (/1) patch parallels, while Prodigious Patches will be limited to 10 with a jumbo patch. They will have a 1/1 Platinum parallel. Rounding things out will be bat knobs, Limited Lumber (prime pieces of bats) and All-Star Patches. Each of these also will be 1/1 creations.
