Topps Supreme courts high-end football fans

What a great day. Watching the NFL playoff games, and remembering that Topps Supreme football is just around the corner.

Topps’ high-end football set is expected to be released on Jan. 11, and a box will contain one pack of four cards (on the average). Price will probably be in the $80 to $100 range, but there will be one autograph card (and I believe one relic card) expected in each pack. On the surface, that may not sound like much. I mean, if you plunk down three figures and get a $20 autograph card, that would cause you to tear your hair out.

I am guessing the sizzle card in each pack is going to be high end, and just imagine: if you pull a Hall of Fame cut signature, or an autographed six-piece relic book card (or even better, an eight-autograph book card), then it’s worth what you paid—and then some.

Those are possible finds in this year’s Supreme product.

I was checking out the prospective checklist of base cards, and while there is only one Bucs player (wide receiver Mike Williams), there are some nice Hall of Famers in the bunch. Here are a few: Joe Namath, Emmitt Smith, Joe Montana, Ronnie Lott, Bart Starr, Dan Marino, Howie Long, Terry Bradshaw, Jerry Rice and Tony Dorsett. There is expected to be a nice mix of current day stars, too—Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Cam Newton.

Nice names in the base set, but you are not buying this product for base cards. Get some of those names on an autograph card or a relic, and now you’re talking some value.

I am hoping to open a pack to see what turns up. Should be interesting.
