Sorry for the hiatus lately folks,I just recently got married and returned from our honeymoon.Updates should be regular from here on out.
Here is a ton of pictures from 2013 Topps.The theme for 2013 seems to be “the chase”.I really getting sick of themes each year.
I like the base design.I like that they added the pink and camo parallels to baseball.They were great in football..
With Topps football releasing on the 8th I thought I would post a ton of pictures I have been gathering.This years Topps is loaded based on early retail breaks.I am eagerly awaiting the hobby release.
Here are some new pictures Topps released.More die cuts.
Here are pics of the Gypsy Queen Wrapper Redemption cards for Bryce Harper and Robert Griffin III.
Topps released some mock ups for 2012 Topps Triple Threads today.It looks to be the same product as it always is.No major changes from the previous years are noticable in the mock ups.
Topps announced via Beckett today that they will be rolling out a mini version of the 2012 Topps set similar to what they did in 1975.This will be packaged 24 packs to a box with 10 cards per pack.Both Series will be included in packs.The box states collect all 661 cards which leads one to believe that the Harper rookie will be included as well.Each box will contain one relic or autographed card.
Here is the kicker though,It will only be available via www.shoptopps.com .This is the second product Topps has released exclusively through the website.In 2011 they released Topps Magic Football through the site.
Topps released these pictures for 2012 Topps Allen & Ginter.One features a Dracula “autograph” which is 2 bloody fang marks on the card.The other is a card of the fire breather.You can always count on Allen & Ginter to keep things fresh and interesting.
While details on this release a few and far between one thing is very clear.This may be the most visually appealing set Topps has released for football in many years.
The images have been borrowed from www.cardboardconnection.com .
My first impression is I am not impressed overall.The handful of Legends seem out of place.The seldom seen photos used are the highlight here.
