Default Element alert: 2011 Topps Platinum Football

Element alert: 2011 Topps Platinum Football

April 29, 2011 at 11:22 AM


By Andrew Tolentino | Football Editor

On the cusp of last night’s draft drama, Topps unveiled its elemental-appreciation product — 2011 Topps Football — to the collecting world.

Following the company’s summer ramp-up, Platinum will hit shelves in early September with newfound rookie clout and fresh product features. Brand-spankin’-new brand components include: on-card rookie autograph cards, rookie Supreme-Sized patch cards, rookie autograph jumbo patch Refractor cards and Platinum die-cut cards.

Vexing Hexagraph autograph Rookie Cards — limited to 10, showcasing six newcomer signatures — are sure to add some double-sided allure to this year’s release.

Each box of 2011 Platinum promises three hits and a per-pack perk: two on-card rookie Refractor autographs, one Refractor patch autograph and one Refractor Rookie Card in each pack.

The box, by the numbers

20 packs per box
Five cards per pack (four veteran base cards, plus one Chrome Rookie Card)
Go beyond the break for more details and visual stimulation.

Well if they want on-card autos with players in their NFL unis it will take at least that long.
