Default First look: 2011 Topps Rising Rookies Football

First look: 2011 Topps Rising Rookies Football

February 28, 2011 at 1:10 PM

By Susan Lulgjuraj | Contributing Editor

More and more these days football products are featuring the top rookies of the game, even before the rookies have made it. Topps is releasing a new product this year with 2011 Topps Rising Rookies Football.

The name says it all with this set. There will be four hits – at least two autographs – in every 24-pack hobby box with half of the cards in each 10-card pack being rookies. Hobby boxes will features on-card rookie autograph NFL Shield and Draft logo patch cards as well as autograph jumbo relics, autograph jumbo patch cards and 1/1 rookie parallels.

A pack should costs fans somewhere around $3 and is set to be released the week of June 7.

See a gallery after the jump:


Collectors may not have to worry about finding doubles of rookies with so many cards in one pack. There are 200 rookies listed in the preliminary checklist with players such as Julio Jones, Ryan Mallett, Cam Newton, Noel Devine and Jake Locker.

It’s not all rookies, however. The veterans list is 100 players long with several inserts sets including Playmakers, NFL Draft Selections and Combine Competition. Some of the relics will also feature top second-year players who had good rookie seasons.

Looks like they tried taking a page out of Panini's book with some of those designs

Couldn't agree more.. looks like the mutant bastard child produced after a drunken one night stand between Unrivaled and Prestige. It even has a name that reminds me of Panini's "Rated Rookies." Way to be original. Although, it should do well at that price point... (3$/pack) I'm tempted to believe in the old adage, "you get what you pay for."

Holy crap 200 rookies in the set. That's practically every player that will be drafted!!! (Well they'll have to include some non-drafted "recognizable" names too). That's crazy. Might be good for college collectors looking for cards of their favorites players drated in the later rounds but other than that...

Looks pretty good. Will def. Try a few packs and maybe a box if there's some buckeyes on the checklist.
