More and more these days football products are featuring the top rookies of the game, even before the rookies have made it. Topps is releasing a new product this year with 2011 Topps Rising Rookies Football.

The name says it all with this set. There will be four hits – at least two autographs – in every 24-pack hobby box with half of the cards in each 10-card pack being rookies. Hobby boxes will features on-card rookie autograph NFL Shield and Draft logo patch cards as well as autograph jumbo relics, autograph jumbo patch cards and 1/1 rookie parallels.

A pack should costs fans somewhere around $3 and is set to be released the week of June 7.

See a gallery after the jump:

Collectors may not have to worry about finding doubles of rookies with so many cards in one pack. There are 200 rookies listed in the preliminary checklist with players such as Julio Jones, Ryan Mallett, Cam Newton, Noel Devine and Jake Locker.

It’s not all rookies, however. The veterans list is 100 players long with several inserts sets including Playmakers, NFL Draft Selections and Combine Competition. Some of the relics will also feature top second-year players who had good rookie seasons.

    i purchased a hobby box of the rising rookies and instead of 4 hits on only received a auto and an auto shield that was it. Any idea why that might have been?
