Topps Prime Football offers up a mid-range priced product that brings high-end bang for the buck.
One look at just how much is included in the break details above is all you need to see. Mind you,
that is all in a ten-pack box that carries a price not too far north of $100. Bang for the buck? There
is lots of bang in this one.
Of course, it also helps that these cards are very pleasing to the eye, as well. Base cards that are
on thicker than normal stock. Pictures that bleed to the edges, with understated yet classy names
and team logos at the bottom. Lots of parallels of varying colors and numbers only add to the pleasure of going through the
From there, we hit inserts that run the gamut from rookies to combos (Patriots fans, of which I am not definitely NOT one,
would be thrilled to open the inserts in this box). Then, the all-important hits come along. Four per box, with a mix of
autographs, jumbo relics, autographed multi-piece relic cards and more prime hits (hence the name) make this a super value
for the collector.
This is a simple product to review. Great base cards, tons of hits, a mix of rookie and veteran autographs on the checklist, big
relic pieces and more put this near the top of the list so far this season........................
