Making a slight, but rookie-relevant adjustment to the hit guarantee for 2011 Topps Football, Topps revealed one-per-Jumbo-box odds for  Rookie Patch Relics.  The previous configuration stated that HTA Jumbo boxes would include two autographs and one Relic, but has since been changed to include one Rookie Patch Relic instead of the solo Relic hit.

This is an upgraded trade-off, depending on who you hit.

Considering first-round sensations like Cam Newton — among others in the AuburnAlabama-heavy draft class — this rookie retooling should fall favorably for those seeking newcomer niceties.

    can barely make out the auburn logo they air brushed over on the helmet. at least they airbrushed the football this time to get rid of that logo.
