I’m doing double duty today because of the big news surrounding a new product from Topps. 2012 Topps Strata will be released some time this season and it looks to be a fantastic new product to their football collection despite being a rookie heavy product.
This product is based around the acetate card design and is sort of a mix between Panini’s Crown Royale Silhouettes and Upper Deck’s SPx Shadow Box cards. It’s quite an interesting collectible to behold.
These are built into 3 layers. A top layer featuring an action shot and an autograph, a middle layer featuring another action shot, and a bottom layer featuring a piece of memorabilia which sits behind everything else. Some of these Rivet Parallels (numbered to 5) will open up and show the three different layers as well, looking like a fan.
Besides these fantastic cards, there will also be other cards to collect as well. You will be able to find some rookie relics, die-cut rookies, and a base set with several low numbered parallels.
But obviously we know what everyone will be searching for in this product, and I can’t wait to see them live around October 22, 2012. It should be an exciting new product.
