09 Topps NFL
36 packs - 10 cards per pack
'One Relic or Autograph per box!'
From the Topps website:
I received the following:
286 unique base cards - plus 8 duplicates.
This issue is consistent with other base sets that we have come to expect from Topps. The front has an action shot and is printed on bright white stock with a glossy front. The name of the palyer and the team is in silver foil. The reverse has personal and pro stats (college if a rookie) and a short write-up of the strengths of the player.
Gold parallels #ed to 2009
Black #ed to 54
Ring of Honor
32 regular and 4 gold
I REALLY like one of these inserts.... Football Stars... for whatever reason, these look really cool. I don't usually collect football - but I might reconsider and try to put this insert set together.
After looking at the checklist - I only saw one Ring of Honor card listed... seem to be fortunate to have received this one.
The black parallels are only numbered to 54... if someone chases this parallel insert set - they deserve a lot of credit!!
However, one could easily chase any number of parallels - as you can see on the checklist - there are a large number of parallels in this issue - including 1/1 printing plates.
The auto is a sticker auto - blue Sharpee - and the card is specifically designed for the sticker.
Overall grade A - did receive 8 dupes... not really necessary in a hobby box.
Go buy several boxes and send the Football Stars to me!!
