First Look: 2011 Topps Finest Football

By Andrew Tolentino | Football Editor

While Topps gave the hobby a certain Five Star product in 2010, the trading card icon just released information on another superlatively named set. Packed out in protective mini boxes, 2011 Topps Finest Football promises a high-quality rip for turf-loving collectors in mid-August.

The base cards set is comprised of 35 rookies from the forthcoming NFL draft and 90 proven veterans. Collectors can expect to land five cards per pack in two-per-box-six-pack mini-boxes. Was that as confusing as it was to type it?

Behold the breakdown and a seven-card gallery after the jump.

Here’s the — hopefully clarified — skinny on 2011 Topps Finest master boxes:

  • Each pack contains five cards
  • There are six packs per mini-box
  • There are two mini-boxes per master box
  • That’s 60 cards per master box

Inside each master box, collectors can expect to land one numbered Rookie Autograph Patch Card, one numbered autograph Jumbo Relic card, two Atomic Die-Cut Refractor Rookie Cards, and two Finest Moments inserts.

Parallels featuring 125 veterans and rookies from the base set fall in the following forms:

  • Super-Fractor (1/1)
  • Printing Plates (1/1)
  • Mosaic Refractor (numbered to 10)
  • Red Refractor (numbered to 25)
  • Gold Refractor (numbered to 50)
  • Black (numbered to 99)
  • X-Fractor (numbered to 399)
  • Refractor

Finest also offers an array of other limited hits, including dual and triple autograph Relics, on-card rookie autograph Refractor variations and Finest Moments autographs.

2011 Finest football is scheduled to hit shelves on (or around) Aug. 15. Stay tuned to Beckett.com for more information on this brand and others as this season’s saga continues.

While Topps produces some very nice cards I am no longer a customer. They have the worst customer service. I have given them more than enough chances to right a wrong and they not only did not right the wrong but the customer service rep was extremely rude. Too bad! I will still get Topps single cards for my PC from the secondary market but I will not give one more dollar directly to Topps.

I agree with Brant. Not only does their customer service stink , but I have to question their business integrity. I purchased some 2010 etopps football cards last year and every month I try to get them out of the vault it says cards not available untill a specific date and when that date comes another availbility date is posted this is been going on for 3 months now. Contacted customer relations and was told cards have not been printed yet. Are these guys criminals or what

I agree with the above posts. Topps is absolutely horrible when it comes to redemptions and customer service. They sure gave Upper Deck a run for their money in customer service and have now surpassed them. Until Topps terminates their rude customer service reps I will no longer be buying any Topps products.
