First Look: 2010 Topps Finest Football by Tracy Hackler

It seems like forever ago, but there was a time late last year when it appeared that Topps was out of the football card business and, as a result, the company temporarily suspended its football operations. Of course, then it was announced  in late April that Topps was in fact not out of the football card business.

In the five weeks since, company officials have certainly made up for lost time by pulling the curtain back on their first three 2010 NFL products — highlighted by today’s preview of 2010 Topps Finest Football — all set to release within a three-week span from late August to late September.

Due out in late September, Finest (five cards per pack, six packs per mini box, two mini boxes per master box) packs football’s first Atomic Refractors (25 players, each with three variations) and will deliver one Rookie Autograph Patch card, one Autographed Dual Relic card, two Die-Cut Refractor rookies and two Finest Moments inserts.

The Rookie Patch Autograph cards honor the 35 players who attended the recent 2010 NFL Players Rookie Premiere and include five Refractor parallel versions numbered from 99 all the way down to 1. Dual and Triple Autograph Relic versions are numbered to 10.

As you might expect, a rainbow array of Refractor parallels take center stage in Finest, including the introduction of a Mosaic version numbered to 10 as well as SuperFractors (1/1), Reds (#’d to 25), Golds (#’d to 50), Blacks (#’d to 99) and X-Fractors (#’d to 399).

The product also features the continuation of Topps’ season-long, cross-brand Rookie Red-Zone On-Card Autograph program.

Stay tuned to Beckett.com for additional information on this product.
