Topps Platinum - NFL​

24 packs - 5 cards per pack
'1 Chrome Autographed Patch Card in every box'
'2 Chrome Rookie Autographs per box'

At this writing, there is no info on www.topps.com

I received the following:

65 unique 'non-chrome' base cards and 1 duplicate

Topps Platinum base has a glossy, silver finish and a bright white reverse. The reverse has personal and professional stats along with a synopsis of the players' strengths and some of his pro honors.

34 unique Chrome cards and 7 duplicates!!!!

I find it unique to this set, the chrome numbers pick up where the base silver foil stop. The set will consist of both chrome and non-chrome cards -- why hasn't this happened before? (Or have I just missed it?)

Inserts

Extra thick inserts - and each is numbered to 1549. This insert is very, very good looking!! Plus, it is not a parallel set - Per Se... yes, there are other cards of the players, but the photos are different - maybe not all, but the ones I received are different. Very good!!

This one is numbered to just 99. There is no specific designation such as refractor on the card that I could find.

****Note to anyone selling packs of Platinum - there are 6 packs in the box with the extra thick card - one of them is the patch card. Don't let buyers play with the packs before purchasing! It makes the odds of getting the patch card 1 in 6 - not bad odds.

*****************************

This patch card is one of the sweetest looking cards I have ever seen. The patch is fantastic!! I also thought it was pretty cool that the player is a Tampa Bay Buc (even though they are the poster kids for futility in football!!)

I was a bit disappointed that there were 7 duplicates in the chrome cards. If I had several boxes, I would expect to have dupes - but not in one box.

The extra thick cards are my favorite in this issue - really good looking.

Overall grade A - waaaay too many dupes in the chromes, but what a sweet patch card!!

Go buy several boxes and send the Crabtree's to me!!

Hi Duane,

I like the cards, but 7 dupes in 1 box is disappointing. Did you happen to pull a Favre card?

Thanks for the review!

The Chromes are all ROOKIES...if you are going to get dupes in the box, that's what you want! I will take rookie dupes all day :)

The numbering on this set is crazy.

That said, I've busted 3 boxes and I love it...great stuff :)
