Rookie Patch Relics added to 2011 Topps Football HTA Jumbo boxes
By Andrew Tolentino | Football Editor
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 Auburn–Alabama-heavy draft class — this rookie retooling should fall favorably for those seeking newcomer niceties.
