Is Turkey Red coming to football?




By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Football Editor

Searching the Internet could lead to some interesting stuff.

Today, I ventured over to the Topps site to get a football checklist and stopped from surprise. Listed under products with the big yellow “New” star was 2012 Topps Turkey Red – for football.

The 2012 Topps Turkey Red football checklist (click here) shows 100 base cards with rookies such as Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck on it (of course, they are both short-prints).

Topps posted a picture of an uncut sheet on its Facebook page and said the product would be available online later this month.

The company recently released a baseball Turkey Red as an online-only product with 12 cards, including an autograph, for $20.

Topps produced the Turkey Red product for football in 2005 and 2006.

      Tom – Well, it seems Topps has since taken it down since this was posted. Even so, the Facebook pic is there.

    I want to say they were giving away that sheet you have pictured on FB. So I would think they would have a release soon. If so, I know I’m buying some! :)

    After the immediate Sell-out of the baseball product, it would be to Topps best interest to produce a football set. Plus, don’t you think this is one of the best draft classes in years? I’m in on the Football Turkey Red.

    I’d rather see them do a bowman heritage style release.
    $100 complete set with one auto or red auto. Autographs ON CARD and a limited release like with
    Baseball of about 1000. Assuming the top names sign, it would be an instant sell out.
