2010 Topps Magic Football

Per Box Items:
24 packs per box
8 cards per pack
3 autograph cards

The standard sized base cards feature a color action shot of the player. The picture is a combination "photo-art." While brush strokes are are not visible, they are not true photographs. Bordered in white, the card fronts have the set name/logo in the top corner and the player name and team logo in a bar on the bottom. The card backs are a non-glossy white card stock with a black and white photo of the team's city skyline. Very basic biographical information and moderate career highlights are also listed. The team logo is again on the card back with a trivia question about the player.

What I pulled:
192 unique cards - no duplicates
3/3 checklists
165 base set cards = 164/248 67% of the base set
24 mini cards - one per pack
2 History's Best Inserts
4 RC Stars
6 Magical Moments
3 Autos
and a Tebow RC! :)

Keeping with the a retro/throwback theme, Topps hopes for some Magic with their latest football release. I have to be honest, and this is just a personal preference, but I am not a fan of the photo-art. I like either oblivious art rendering pictures or photographs. Some people may like the design though. What I feel is one of the strongest points is the awesome mix of RC, veteran players and retired stars. The quality and collation are good and the stated hits were right on. The autos are sticker autos, but do not detract from the card. 2010 Topps Magic is a solid entry level product and should be popular with both set collectors and retro set fans.

The Bottom Line:
I give 2010 Topps Prime a buy rating. It will take a few boxes and lots of trading if you are going to the base set, but the inserts and hits are way cool! Buy a box and trade your Tebow cards to me!

The Final Score:
Final Ratings (Out of 5):
Base set collect-ability: 4/5
Big-hit Hunter: 3/5
Prospector Hunter:4/5
Overall Design: 4/5
Fun: 5/5
Value: 4/5
Re-buy: 5/5
Overall Quality: 5/5

Overall: 34/40 (85% = A)

As always I am offering base cards to members of The Bench for a SASE

Thanks to Topps for making this review possible!

Hey, did you get a James Starks? He is card #24 in the base set.
If the McCoy is available, I would like to put in a request for him. Thanks.
