First look: 2013 Topps Strata Football


By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Football Editor

Topps is bringing back Strata back for a sophomore campaign.

The card company debuted the layered product last season with one of the most hyped rookie classes. It hasn’t changed much in 2013 Topps Strata football, and left in what collectors enjoyed about the product.

Each box guarantees two autographs, one relic card and a rookie die-cut. Case hits include one Strata Signature Relic, three Clear-Cut Autographed Patch cards and three Rookie Patch cards.

The Clear Cut Autograph Relic cards are back and collectors win find one in each box featuring up to 40 rookies (think the players that were at the NFL Players Association Rookie Premiere). The autograph relics have nine parallels, but seven of them are exclusive to hobby.

Bronze (numbered to 150) and Gold parallels (#’d to 99) are widely available. The Sapphire Patch (#’d to 60), Emerald Patch (#’d to 30), Ruby Patch (#’d to 15) and Quartz Gloves, Quartz Pigskin, Quartz Swoosh and Quartz Patch (all 1-of-1) are only available in hobby.

Strata will include up to 50 veteran and base autographs without relics.

Collectors will also get a chance to get redemptions for Uncut Sheets of veteran, Hobby Rookie, Retail Rookie and Rookie Die-Cut forms.

One of the biggest upgrades is in the design of the base cards. There will be 150 cards in the base set with 50 rookies. Parallels of the base include Bronze (#’d to 150), Gold (#d to 99), Sapphire (#’d to 50), Emerald (#’d to 10), Ruby (1/1) and Printing Plates (1/1).

Last year, the base cards had different pictures of the rookie between hobby and retail and it seems as Topps taking that road once again.

Each box will have six 18-card packs and release in December.
