2011 Topps Football


2011 Topps football is live!  12 cards per retail pack.  Also states that a rookie is in every pack.  Let's see...

#358 Robert Meachem

Like Upper Deck did with their 2011 football set Topps rehashed it's baseball design for use here.  Overall it works pretty well.  I like that the team's division is added to the circle around the team's logo.

#180 Peyton Hillis

This guy exploded my fantasy team last year.

#076 Donald Brown

#108 Delone Carter RC

4th pick  (119th overall) by the Colts in this year's draft out of Syracuse.

#432 Stevan Ridley RC
3rd pick (73rd overall) by the Patriots out of Louisiana State

#127 Ryan Whalen RC

6th pick (167th overall) by the Bengals out of Stanford

#14 Reggie Wayne - 1950 Bowman

These mini cards are about the same size as the ones found in Magic football are are seeded 1:3 packs.

#WC-2 Jake Locker - Bowman Continuity Rookie Card

These are seeded 1:6 packs.

#084 Green Bay Packers

The team cards are pretty much the same as the team cards from baseball.

#324 Lance Moore

#156 New Orleans Saints

#014 Tyrod Taylor RC

Sixth pick (180th overall) by the Ravens out of Virgina Tech

If you liked this year's baseball design then I think you'll like Topps' return effort to football.  The inserts appear to be plentiful with several nice designs from what I've seen in person and from the sell sheets.  I'll be buying some more looking for Carolina Panthers and of course the RC of #1 overall pick Cam Newton.

Sweet Tyrod.

For a second, I thought Ryan Whalen was playing for an Aussie Rules Football team.

one rookie per pack? looks like nearly half the pack was rookies...interesting. I wonder if that's just an anomaly.
