First look: 2010 Topps Tribute football cards by Chris Olds

One of Topps‘ flashiest high-end sets from the early 2000s returned in baseball little over a year ago and now it’s back once again.

On the gridiron.

Topps revealed the basic breakdown and preview images for 2010 Topps Tribute Football on Thursday evening, a one-hit-per-pack product that will arrive packing plenty of flash and it arrives on Jan. 31, 2011.

Each six-pack box will include four autographed Relics or autograph cards and three multi-piece Relic cards in this hobby-only product.

The base set will consist of 100 cards — 48 rookies, 40 veterans and 12 legends of the game — with all the parallels collectors should be familiar with from the baseball release. There are Reds, Golds, Greens, Blacks and Blues as well as printing plates to be found.

The autographed multi-piece Relic checklist will include 30 players flying solo, 65 on quad cards and 75 players on triples. There will be 1/1 Red patch version of these cards as well as Gold, Black and Blue parallels.

The autograph-only lineup will include cuts — as many as four players per card — while the Relic-only lineup will focus on multi-player and multi-piece cards with booklet cards also worked into the mix. The booklets will include as many as eight players, while others will include four.

Tribute was a football product in 2005 but didn’t have the staying power of its baseball counterpart, which arrived in 2001 and was around for the first half of the decade before returning last year.
