Anyway. While I was out showing my and the wife's family a good time around the state, fishing, site seeing, ect, Topps Football came out. So yesterday I had the opportunity to finally pick up a jumbo box.
I have to say that the photography is awesome, just flipping through the cards as I ripped I noticed how great a lot of cards looked.
On to the parallels. Gold cards were falling1 in every 2 packs of jumbo. Which differs from baseball that were falling 1 to 1.
I'm a little bummed Topps decided not to carry over the Diamond Parallels to this set.
On to the inserts.
The Superbowl Legends Giveaway cards. I think these are much nicer than the MCG and DCG baseball cards.
Topps for some reason the last couple of years has been on this duo card kick. Paring players together for some reason or another. This year we get players that play or played on the same team, which for me as a team collector is great, and the layout is a lot nicer than the Legandary Lineage from Baseball.
Toppstown. Nuff said there.
If you read my blog at all you know I'm a oddball mini fan. So without a doubt my favorite insert this year are the bowman mini's. I'm probably going to have to try for this set.
Here's a look at a back.
Now on to the hits. I'll say that there was nothing super spectacular but at least all the hits were in the box.
First we have a Gameday auto of Bilal Powell.
And a Game Day Auto of Jimmy Smith.
My best hit was this Torrey Smith Rookie Patch. Yes I know it's from the Rookie Premiere and not game worn but a nice looking patch.
Well over all a nice looking set this year. I like the inserts they all have a nice design and I've seen some pretty cool hits on other blogs and messages boards. I haven't collated my box yet to see what I need. I'm hoping that I get a full set out of the Jumbo like I did for baseball.
Well I'm heading out of town for 10 days on Tuesday into the wilds of Alaska for work and then back out for another 10 day trip at the end of the month. So needless to say August is shot for me if you are trying to get a hold of me. But I'll be around. I have a few trade posts I need to finish and I went on another vintage wax binge. All I can say is 92 Stadium Club Baseball for 6 bucks a box, all three series.
Until next time CB out.
