Topps is bringing back 2011 Topps Supreme football for it’s sophomore season after a successful rookie campaign. Will it face the sophomore slump? Or will it continue its success on the field and be a MVP candidate?
I’m thinking the latter. This product looks loaded with some great autographs and memorabilia cards. I’m impressed and would consider this, so far, to be a must get football product this season. It reminds me of the Upper Deck Ultimate Collection brand which has been a staple at that company and is always a favorite with collectors.
Let’s start with a standard box break and go from there. Each box/pack should yield one autographed card that is numbered, one autographed relic card or relic card that is numbered, one parallel, and two base cards. This is a great upgrade over last year where some boxes only had a plain old jersey card.
There are 16 boxes in a case, but every box will have some sort of different type of case hits. Per case there are four autographed relics, four autographed rookie cards, one multi-autographed card, one single player autograph, one additional autograph of those listed, and five Supreme relics. So that means 11 out of the 15 boxes in the case should have two autographs while the other 5 will have some nice relic pieces. Oh, and a surprise, Red Zone autographs of the rookies in the Rookie Premiere will be randomly inserted, not messing with these ratios, as a bonus! That works for me! I would of bought Supreme last year if it was like this so instead I picked up singles.
Every card is numbered (except regular base) in some form. Topps is famous for it’s parallels so as with most every Topps product, every card will be paralleled in some fashion.
The autographs and relics can also be found from single player relics and autographs all the way up to eight player relics or autographs in book form!
Honestly, this looks to be one of the must buy football products of the season. And at around $100, it is right in the right price range for most serious collectors. The only problem about this product? It doesn’t come out until January 2012, but that means there is plenty of time to save the pennies!
January can’t come soon enough. I mean, check out this checklist!
