Topps says that Paradigm "will lead all super premium football products in the way of collectibility and value and will set the standard of how super premium football products will be produced."
The product includes autographed Relic cards with game-worn patches signed by this year's hottest rookies, autographed dual rookie NFL logo patch cards and autographed nameplate letters from game-worn jerseys signed by 2006 rookies.
