Come September, Paul Wall could very well be busting packs of Topps football cards to renovate that world-famous grill of his. (Is Paul Wall still relevant?)
Topps Platinum football hits the streets on Sept. 3 — chock-full of hard-signed autographs, rare Refractors and plenty of shiny things to satisfy even the most discerning of rap artists. The manufacturer recently announced that each 20-card box will deliver a total of three hits (two hard-signed Rookie Cards and one autographed Rookie Refractor patch card). Collectors can also expect the investment to yield one Black Refractor Rookie Card parallel and one Platinum Die Cut Rookie Card.
Sans-hit single packs come with a five-card formula comprised of three veteran base cards, one Chrome Rookie Card, and one veteran ruby parallel. With Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III headlining this year’s Draft class, the various parallel and new tough-to-pull finds in Platinum makes for an interesting chase.
Two-per-box Rookie Refractor autographs, for instance, feature 50 newcomer subjects in the following variations:
* = New variation
Aside from the guaranteed autographs inside each box, the product has a number of multi-signature, multi-swatch finds to be found:
Materially speaking, 2012 Platinum will feature one-per-case Platinum Rookie Patches in addition to the host of numbered Refractor Patch variations. Topps is set to include 40 key rookies and 15 veterans on the swatch-happy side of the set.

And to clarify, this is Paul Wall:
To answer your question … Who?
those booklets must be impossible to hit I havent seen anybody pulled one since the product debuted in 2009. Why even show I picture of a card that probably goes out the backdoor
@Confused: see the video update.
why is this idiot on Beckett? what does he have to do with sports cards? what does a “grill” have to do with sports? NOTHING! this is stupid!
I appreciate the fervor Don, but he’s just here to interject a little play on the whole platinum aspect.
I like the base set. would be good for TTM autographs.
looks nice but i haven’t seen the book card either
Nice looking stuff!
OMG thanks I watched that video choked on my beer and peed a little after a bad day. totally caught me off guard still laughing thanks. oh ya the cards look great lol.
REALY is this what collecting has come to ?? Beckett needs to stick to card information and leave the idiot bling crap to other magazines !!
How do you consider a TOPPS PLATINUM REFRACTOR card? Regular Platinum card?
