Topps Strata sneak peek with Robert Griffin III

Topps Strata will make its appearance in December, and Robert Griffin III collectors might want to start saving their money.

A couple of cards trickled into Topps featuring the Washington Redskins quarterback.

So less writing, more pictures.


What do you think?

What do I think? I think I'm glad I don't collect expensive players :p

TheBurg 10-19-2012 12:16 PM

Wow. Didn't know cards like the first one even existed in this product. Hopefully they do this inscription-type card for all the rookie premiere guys, they would most definitely be chase cards.

JusRelax 10-19-2012 12:17 PM

I will definitely be on the hunt for the RG3 sock booklet.

That's pretty freaking cool

Case price has jumped quite a bit since initial release, so your slot would be locked in at the lesser case price!

Are the RG3 relics socks? That'd be cool

Mattspalace 10-19-2012 01:09 PM

Wonder if they're real or manufactured.

Very neat idea. A spikes parallel! I can't wait to see that one. Wow.

Topps Letterman all over again.

Cue the lemmings running towards the cliff.

MSD 10-19-2012 01:20 PM

The cards actually look kind of cheap. That first booklet is pretty amazing though.

Mattspalace 10-19-2012 01:22 PM

Pretty meh about them to be honest. Not a book-card fan.

Nothing like it. There is this one sock card, all the others are RPA's like other products. No manu patches. Also, There is no sticker on the patch, but rather an elevated acetate window auto towards the bottom of the swatch (On-Card auto). Everyone's complaints about Letterman: Uglyness, Sticker auto's on manu patches, and the manu patches themselves.

bigmikeatl88 10-19-2012 01:45 PM

Can't wait!

OK, enjoy your Michael Egnew and Isaia Pead Autos.

bigmikeatl88 10-19-2012 02:35 PM

That's the 1/1 socks RGIII insert with the Hail inscription. Doubt they did that on the other players' but never know. Maybe the 1/1s if lucky.

The Dual Booklets are 1/1 with 10 total combos supposedly.

FanboyOfNone 10-19-2012 02:45 PM

I'm looking forward to the one per case low numbered hits. Guess that's the big one. :eek:

Now to convince myself to get in before I blow all my cash on boxes of R&S and Prime...

WilsonValdez 10-19-2012 02:47 PM

Nice looking set...we'll see how it's actually executed.

TheBurg 10-19-2012 02:51 PM

It's the risk that goes with box-breaking. I'm fully aware of it, and accepting it anyways. Thanks for the advice though:)!

I wanna get Pead on!!! :)! :flex:

:eek:

JusRelax 10-19-2012 04:28 PM

Based on my calculations, print run is actually pretty similar to Topps Prime. It's not like Finest or Platinum, where you'll have autos of Pead/Egnew /xxxx.

Btw -- for those of you planning on going retail with this set, my recommendation is DO NOT DO IT. Hobby for this set will be way better.

I agree with both of your points.

The clear cut looks stupid IMO. A piece of plastic over the patch??
