Default Topps Strata sneak peek with Robert Griffin III

Topps Strata sneak peek with Robert Griffin III

October 19, 2012 at 11:38 AM




By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Football Editor

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?

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.

Currently accepting backups

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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??
