I liked everything that they got on both boxes.

Recently bought a box of 2012 Topps Prime Hobby and a blaster box from my local Wal-Mart. I noticed that the retail cards not only used thinner card stock, but also had different photos for the rookie cards. I also noticed that on one of the inserts I got from the hobby box was a Level 6 Russell Wilson auto card with a swatch. Its listed on the Beckett site at $50.00 ( NICE!) but it says its a print run of 786 while the card I have says 020/250. Does this change the price or is it still $50? Just curious.

Hey James B,

We did a post looking at a couple of the difference in retail and hobby (http://www.beckett.com/news/2012/10/topps-prime-football-hobby-vs-retail/).

$50 is the hi-book value of the card. The fact that it’a lower print run could slightly change the value in your favor, but there is not a huge gap because the same card numbered to 50 has an $80 hi-book value.

Thanks for the response Susan! I appreciate it!

It appears that the cards were outlined in a black marker on parts of the players body to give them a 2 dimensional look, and separate them from the other players in the picture. Did Topps deliberately use that strategy?
