Topps bumps up 2012 Prime Football release


By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Football Editor

Topps bumped up the street date for 2012 Topps Prime Football to Friday. The product was supposed to come out next week, but why wait.

Pushing up the release date creates same-day distribution for retail and hobby. For collectors who frequent big box stores, they know cards often show up a few days earlier than hobby releases.

As fans get their hands on Prime, eBay auctions have been trickling online.

Some of the best autographs to pop up so far are:
Robert Griffin III
Trent Richardson
Blaine Gabbert

However, Topps has included some unique booklet cards.

Look at this card from Stephen Hill. It includes pieces from a wristband, glove, football and jerseys. Topps has added a little bit everything on these autographed booklet cards.

Here’s an auction for another booklet card of Isaiah Pead.

While it’s still early in the release, have you picked up anything from 2012 Topps Prime?

    Mehhhh thing I’ve liked about prime in the past is the simple clean design. Not a fan of whatever that is they have at the bottom of the card. Looks to much like base topps without the white border. No need for all that just have the team logo and the players name that’s it.
