Topps Platinum N F L 2013
20 packs - 5 cards per pack
1 Auto'd Patch Relic and 2 Rookie On-Card Autos
I received the following:
56 base veteran cards - no dupes!! - 56% of the base set (100 cards)
Platinum - solid issue. The cards look fantastic and seem to have been printed well. The base cards are on regular card stock with a glossy/mirrored finish. The card nearly looks to be a refractor type card. The design is good with an action photo of the player. The reverse has stats and a write up called Going Platinum.
This base set - if I were to collect and assemble the set - should be put in card sleeves. The edges might be slightly more 'delicate' than the average card.
12 rookies received - ( I believe the rookie set is #101 to #150) - 25% of the rookie portion of the set.
The rookies are 'chrome-like' - heavier card and the front is a very high gloss. Each has the RC designation. Well done!!
Blue Sapphire parallels - I received 19 veteran parallels and one rookie parallel. The veteran blue sapphires are much thicker than the base cards.
I received 5 of the rookie xfractors. This is a very cool looking card. I really like the design in the xfractor portion of the card. This would be a good insert set to chase.
Breast Cancer Die Cut
Most of you should know by now, my favorites are the die cuts. This card does not disappoint. Very well done!!
Both of these fellers can write! Their autos look excellent - blue Sharpee on the card - as promised. Both are highly reflective and chrome-like.
Rookie Auto Patch Relic
Jordan Reed - #ed to 1000
Topps Platinum seems to be a pretty cool issue. The cards look great and both player collector and set builder should be relatively happy with these cards. The blue sapphire set would be fun to collate.
Overall grade A+
Go buy several boxes and send the die cuts to me!!
