09 Topps Mayo Football

24 packs per box - 8 cards per pack
'1 Autograph & 1 Relic in Every Box!'

At this writing, there is no info on the Topps website.... www.topps.com

I received the following:

Base Cards
144 unique base cards - no duplications!!
http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e63/hdjstuff/jpg154.jpg

This issue is printed on stiff white stock. The front is in color with gold frame and printing. The reverse - gold with white printing - VERY GOOD looking back to a card. So far this year, the back of this card would be in the top 2 that I have seen or reviewed... impressive.

The base set has a number of non-football cards - including politicians, presidents, corporate moguls, entertainers, retired NFL players, and other selected athletes. The base set consists of 330 cards.

Inserts

Parallel (Silver)

This parallel is about 3 times as thick as the base card and has a silver back.

I received 22 unique cards.

Mini Parallels

Black & White

14 unique and 1 duplication

******************

Topps Mayo NFL - I like this football set. I especially like the reverse of the base set... IMHO - a very classy look. This should be a good issue for the player collector - with mini parallels and silver parallels to chase. The set collector should not have too much trouble assembling the set - not sure if there are SP's or not in the set and if there are, how many are inserted in each box... as soon as I find out, I will post here on The Bench.

The parallel collectors out there might have a little hill to climb with this issue - especially the mini set collectors - could prove to be a long pursuit.

If I have a gripe - it's the name of the set - Topps Mayo Cut Plug - 'Mayo's Cut Plug is Always Good' -- I know that there are desires to make the set as authentic as possible, but with the push to make all forms of tobacco evil - this seems to be a no brainer. Just call it 'Mayo Football'...

The auto I received is Jackie Joiner-Kersee - a blue Sharpee sticker auto - the card is designed for a sticker and it is done well - not really sure what, if anything, JJK has to do with football, but the auto is good looking!

Overall grade A+ good looking cards!!

Go buy several boxes and send all of the Michael Crabtree (Texas Tech NFL 49er holdout) to me - parallels and all!!

Funny. At a quick glance at the silver parallel images, I'd assumed that they were the same card. I thought, "That doesn't look like an 'Andre Brown'." :)

Pull 95 Tesla, 103 Hines Ward, 122 Jerry Rice or 125 Joe Montana? Could use any or all.

President Harrison is glad you know the difference!

95 Tesla and 125 Montana are yours.

Nice review Duane, as always. I'm not sure what to think of this product. It just seems like a rip off of A&G. I would be really PO'ed if I bought a box of football product and pulled a Jackie Joiner-Kersee as the only auto.

Did you pull any of these?
