Topps unveiled its latest football offering, 2010 Bowman Sterling, on Monday, a rookie-loaded high-end product chock-full of autographs and memorabilia cards.

Set to arrive in mid-December, Sterling will include 12 Rookie Cards, four autographs, two autographed Relics and a dozen more Relics in every six-pack box. Also included will be a dual Relic box-topper card.

Every five-card pack will include two RCs, one autograph and two Relics, while every eight-box case includes one dual autograph.

As with most Topps products, and past editions of Bowman Sterling, there are several parallels of each card to be found — SuperFractors and printing plates as well as Refractors (Gold, Black, Blue and standard).

Among the notable rookies on the autograph checklist are Tim Tebow, Sam Bradford, Jimmy Clausen, Colt McCoy, Jordan Shipley, C.J. Spiller, Ndamukong Suh and others, while the veteran autograph lineup includes Eli Manning, Percy Harvin, Chris “Beanie” Wells, Ray Rice, Drew Brees and others.

There’s a five-card Rookie 6 checklist — cards that will include six autographs — with the most notable being a  Bradford-Tebow-Clausen-Dez Bryant-Demariyus Thomas-Mike Williams card.  The Rookie Quad checklist includes five cards led by a Bradford-Tebow-Clausen-McCoy creation. There also will be five Rookie Triple cards and 10 Rookie Dual autographs.

The autographed Relic checklist is deep, including most of the Rookie Premiere players, while the veterans autograph checklist includes the likes of Brees, Braylon Edwards, Adrian Peterson, Felix Jones and  LaDainian Tomlinson. The Dual Autograph Dual Relics checklist and the rookie Relics checklists are quite deep as well.
