Yeah, I’m still under the weather. But now I have all this time that I can either sleep with the medications they’ve given me or stay awake and wait until this passes. I like to be awake, so why not preview the last professional football product from my September 2011 releases?
Topps Prime football releases again this year, but looking a little better in the design department. Last year’s product was okay, I mean it wasn’t terrible and the base design was great, but this year the Topps design team has stepped it up a bit. I would say it looks kind of like some Exquisite designs of old, with some new ideas.
Each box will feature 1 autographed relic card, 1 autographed rookie, and 2 relics cards. The relics they use for this product again feature quite the variety. You can find gloves, footballs, wristbands, patches, and both home and away jerseys. A wide variety for such a mid-range product, which is a great thing as if you’re going to rip a box and get relics it is nice to get something different for once.
You can also find 1 insert per pack which is designed like the regular relic cards, just without the relic. You will also find 1 rookie per pack and 4 veterans. With a total of 10 packs per box, this looks to be a solid mid-range product with the potential for some great hits like booklets, autographed patches, and great relic pieces.
This product is set to release on September 28, 2011, for a price around $85 right now.
