2013 Topps Prime - N F L

10 packs - 6 cards per pack
4 Hits per box - 2 Relics, 1 Auto'd Relic and 1 Auto

I received the following:

48 unique base cards - NO DUPES -- YES!!!!

Prime is a higher end NFL product. The cards are thicker than normal base cards. The photography is full bleed with no border (be careful handling them - if you might get one graded.) The base cards have silver foil embossing and the reverse has personal stats and career NFL stats. Also one will find The Stage and the Performance under the heading of Prime-Time Performance. The numbering of the cards is small with 6,8 and 9 sometimes harder to distinguish (i.e. 89, 99, 69, etc...)

I like the photography in this issue - most of the players are actually shown playing the game with other players on the card (as opposed to all the other players and the field removed.) Well Done!!

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

Topps Prime - very good issue for the player collector - and for the set builder/collector - one will probably need a minimum of 4 boxes to complete the base set. The player collector has numerous parallels to chase along with autos and relics. Don't really know why there is a gold unnumbered parallel (the back is a bit darker than the base card) and a numbered gold parallel. I like parallels to be numbered (preferably on the reverse of the card - not the front.)

The rookie cards are clearly marked with the RC embossed logo on the front of the card - easy to spot.

The 2 Bernard cards - 2 slightly different pics - well done!! (not so much with the sticker auto - but still well done!) Giovani Bernard seems to have taken writing lessons from Wil Myers....

Overall grade A might be pretty tough to build the master set with all of the parallels involved.

Go buy several boxes and see if you can start the master set...

Topps Prime is an A+ in my book.
Interested in the bernard & Lacy autos. I have Hamilton, Longoria &Price autos to trade. Also, lmk if your looking for other player autos in baseball.

Thanks for the review Duane. This is a nice product. I don't like that you got the same player on two premium cards from one box. Please LMK if you pulled any of these.
