2013 Topps Inception NFL

One pack

I received the following in this hobby only premium product:

Base

http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e63/hdjstuff/img632_zpsfc1a6df2.jpg

Wright and Pitta

Inception NFL follows the same path as Inception baseball.... dark and foreboding. The background on this premium issue appears as a storm. The cards are 3 times as thick as a normal base card. The reverse has personal and pro stats along with 'Career Inception' write up. The photo is glossy with the background as a matte finish.

Inserts

Green and Gold Parallels

Johnson #ed to 199
Green-Ellis #ed to 75

Autos/Patches

Michael #ed to 50
ON Card - Blue Sharpee!! - Excellent!!

Patch of Nassib #ed to 93
Nice patch!! - card very well done..

"Patch" with auto - Knile Davis #ed to 345
Sticker auto :eek: --and the strangest 'patch' I have ever had the privilege to have in my hands - it is a screen printed patch -- very weird.

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

Topps Inception NFL - a rather pricey gamble to say the least. Here in O'do - the boxes/packs are going for about $110 +/-. Now if one is fortunate and gets a big hit - then it's fantastic. Then there are packs like this one. Don't get me wrong, the cards look great, the production of the cards is excellent, and the overall quality of the cards received is wonderful.

Inception NFL has the 'artsy' feeling to it. To me, football is anything but artsy. Why not rub dirt and sweat and blood on the cards? (Yes, I know that blood and sweat cannot be used on a card for health reasons.... but one could still design a card to look like that.)

I like the patch cards - they are much thicker than the base cards and are very well designed. I especially like the on card auto - looks fantastic.

The player collector will be the primary target of Inception football. To build the base set, might be one heck of a chore - but hey, if that's your thing - give it a go. There can't be that many complete sets out there AND if one decided to build the #ed to 50 set - that would be very special!

Overall grade B - value will be hit and miss at best!

Go buy a pack or two and send the Tebow cards to me!

Interesting stuff. I agree on the Davis patch, that is pretty sharp. Has to be quite a cross section of the sleeve.

Interesting - they didn't have any non-auto'd cards in the baseball Inception (base or otherwise). Wonder why they did it differently for football? They are some nice looking cards in either case. If you're interested in moving the Calvin Johnson and can use any of these Tebows, let me know. Thanks - David.

Thanks for the review Duane. This product is not for me. Not a fan of artsy cards.
