Cards From The Rookie Premiere II

Another preview that we saw following the NFL Rookie Premiere are these mini tallboys that will be inserted in to the 2012 Topps Football release set to be released in August.

The original 1965 Topps Football tallboys were larger than current cards, measuring in at 2.5 x 4.6875 compared to todays standard 2.5 x 3.5 sized cards. We have not seen many over sized cards since the 1994 Fleer NBA Jam Sessions release so it is pretty cool to see these mini tallboys making their way in to packs. These tallboys will be slightly smaller than a current sized card (1.8675"x 3.5) and this was done to ensure the cards could fit in to packs.

The 1965 Topps insert set will contain 140+ retired and veteran players plus there will be on-card autographed rookie versions (these are the images I am including in the post). No insertion ratio has been announced and while Topps has announced that none of the autographed rookie cards will be short printed they have not stated anything about the retired and veteran cards.
