2011 Topps Gridiron Legends Football

Topps just released some preview images of the upcoming 2011 Topps Gridiron Legends Football set which is scheduled for release in October. Each box is supposed to contain 18 packs, 8 cards per pack and include 4 hits and should be selling around $75/box. And in what has become typical Topps style there will be 8 parallels:

  • Black (1/1)
  • Purple (numbered to 10)
  • Orange (numbered to 50)
  • Red (numbered to 75)
  • Gold (numbered to 99)
  • Green (numbered to 150)
  • Bronze (numbered to 299)
  • Blue (one per pack)

For the “vintage” collector there will be a 1956 Topps reprint autograph set which features players who appeared in the original 1956 set and will play nicely on the “Legends” title. The thing that I do not like is that with a set titled Legends you would not expect to see rookies, I wish that Topps left them out but I do understand the reasoning behind adding them so the set now appeals to old school legends collectors and to modern and prospecting collectors alike.
