Not long after the retro-filled, quarterback commemorative, Andrew Luck-infused goodness coming in basic Topps football, 2012 Finest should hit hobby shops with distinct, higher-end appeal.
The fourth brand in Topps’ early-season release schedule lands on Aug. 20 — leaving plenty of time to swap these airbrushed mockup images for fully-licensed NFL photography. According to the manufacturer, 2012 Topps Finest will include even more on-card autographs which should make for a lineup of big hits in Rookie Refractor autograph variations, Finest Atomic rookie autograph Refractors, and, let’s be honest, anything with Andrew Luck’s signature on it. More details after the jump.
Among the Luck-y charms, the Topps press release highlights the allure of pulling one of his exclusive “Lucky Cuts” autograph die-cut cards.
Obviously, autographs from the projected top pick aren’t a guarantee, but the product does offer a more-than-mediocre “Master Box” manifest. Here’s the rundown on what to expect from each 12-pack (six packs in each two-per-box mini box) break:
Autograph patch cards showcase up to 40 rookies with multi-color patches and signatures on refractive chrome printing. The plethora of parallels include:
One-per-box autograph Jumbo Relics feature up to 55 rookies and veterans alongside penmanship and large jersey swatches. Parallels include:
2012 Finest will also feature numbered, hard-signed versions of the base Rookie Cards, each with increasingly exclusive parallels.
Finest Moments inserts fall one per mini box and highlight key moments in 25 veteran and rookie careers. These also come in Refractor parallels and in rarer autographed variations:
The 150-card base set in 2012 Finest will be comprised of 50 rookies and 100 veterans with the following per-pack parallel odds and numbered allure:
Stay tuned to Beckett.com after the Rookie Premiere to see what these cards look like after official NFL photography and more details become available.

Can’t wait for 12 Finest. Question about 2011 Finest Football. Checklist showed RAP of locker, ingram, Dalton and Gabbert. I only saw Refractors of Gabbert and Dalton. Did they not produce RAPs of these guys?
