09 Topps Magic Football
24 packs - 8 cards per pack
'3 Autograph Cards in Every Box'
From the Topps website:
I received the following:
154 unique base cards - no duplications!!
This issue seems to be pretty well loaded with rookies and should prove to be a winner in the years to come. It is printed on 'ivory' (off white) stock and in the style of the 1951 Magic set. Some will really like this and others - not so much. The reverse of the card has a map showing where the player came from. Some of the cards are printed on a very light shade of green (not my favorite) - maybe there is some significance to that, but it escapes me.
I received a total of 24 mini parallels - 4 of which are black bordered.
The mini appears to be about 80% (size-wise) of the base card. I did not notice any card color differences (no green cards - at least from what I received.)

Each of these cards have a question to be answered and the answer can be found when a coin is rubbed on the card in the box.
All of the autos are blue Sharpee and are sticker autos... at least I did not receive any redemption cards.... Very good. The checklist has 250 autos listed.... quite a list. This could be the set that someone attacks with vigor and it would be a very cool set to own.
Overall grade A- I prefer photos of today and not necessarily the retro sets of the past. But hey, that's just me.
Go out and buy several boxes and send the Michael Crabtree autos to me!!
