2014 Topps Football Jumbo Hobby Pack
Let's have a look at the base design.
I do like the look of this years 4000 and 1000 Yard Club cards. It's a big improvement over last years design. I still think Topps missed a great opportunity to really make these stand out by doing something interesting like chroming them out, or using foilboard, acetate, die-cut, or something.
Topps also has two Fantasy Football themed inserts. Seems excessive, althought Fantasy Football is incredibly popular.
By far my favorite insert of the set are these Greatness Unleashed cards. Very artsy and an overall great design and other than the '63 mini's is the only set I'm trying to put together.
I love the mini cards. Don't know why and I don't know why Topps started the numbering at 200 either. Anyone?
And lastly, and much to my surprise I ended up pulling a Rookie Premiere Auto. Too bad the bottom right corner is dinged. I'd send it in to Topps, but I don't have all the paperwork they want anymore. Oh well. Still the auto is worth more than the pack so that's a bonus and who know's maybe this guy will take off.
