2010 Topps NFL

Topps Sell Sheet (http://www.toppsonlinestore.com/servlet/the-655/2010-Topps-Football-Cards/Detail) for a 24 pack Retail box. I opened a 36 pack Hobby box.

Box Break Video (http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/9364990)

Per Box Items: (Hobby Box)
36 packs per box
10 cards per pack
A Rookie card in every pack
1 Autograph or Relic card per box

The standard sized cards feature a full color action shot of the player. The Topps logo, player position, and player name are all trimmed with silver foil. The team name is located on the lower left corner and all team names are printed in the official font for the team. The white bordered card fronts have a curved graphic on the left side of the card in the teams primary color. All of the card backs are in a horizontal format. The card backs include a cropped picture of the same one on the front, player position, team logo, moderate biographical information, moderate career highlights and complete career statistics.

What I Pulled:
358 Unique cards - no duplicates
267/440 base set cards - 60%

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

2010 Topps NFL offers a great product for the base set. The photography, design, quality and collation are all strong points. There are plenty of inserts and parallels to case and the RC card per pack is exciting. A subset in the base set to look for is the "All-Pro Team." Both the All-Pro Team and RC cards have the appropriate logos. I really like the team cards and think the team name in the official team font is a nice touch. The auto is a sticker auto but it is made to fit the card. I like inserts, but the one Topps Attax code card per pack makes the hobby box a little insert heavy. I would have rather had an additional 36 base cards towards the set.

The Bottom Line:
I give 2010 Topps NFL a BUY rating. You will be able to complete the entire base set with two hobby boxes. Not a strong buy if you are looking to make your money back with one big hit. However for an entry level base set, 2010 Topps NFL is a Touchdown! Go buy a box and trade your Tim Tebow cards to me!

The Final Score:
Final Ratings (Out of 5):
Base set collect-ability: 3/5
Big-hit Hunter: 2/5
Prospector Hunter:5/5
Overall Design: 5/5
Fun: 5/5
Value: 5/5
Re-buy: 5/5
Overall Quality: 5/5

Overall: 35/40 (88% = A)

As always I am offering base cards to members of The Bench for a SASE

Thanks to Topps for making this review possible!

Tal, I would like to get the Anquain Boldin Ravens Platinum card for my friend who is a diehard ravens fan and is just starting to get into the hobby.
Let me know what I can send your way to get that off of you.
Also for my Panthers p.c., if you pulled any Jimmy Clausen Variations, I'd like to get one for a rookie card so I have it.

Thanks
Zac

Nice review! I love this years design, much better than the past few years in my opinion. I'd love to get the Peyton Manning, Brett Favre (if you received one), or Aaron Rodgers Attax cards from you if they are available.

Thanks for the review,
John

Hi Tal,
Are the gridiron giveaway cards unredeemed and available?
If so, let me know what you seek for them.

PM me as I'm no longer watching this thread.
Thanks,
