Five Star Baseball made its mark on the hobby last week, but the idea for the product originated with football.

Topps Five Star Football was a popular high-end release when it came out in 2010. While the next football installment isn’t scheduled to come out for another couple of months, Topps did release news on Five Star.

Collectors always look for ways to showcase their collections from buying frames to making their own displays.

With Five Star Football, Topps is taking out some of the hassle.

In initial workups, Topps showed off a prototype of the packaging for Five Star Football. Many high-end products come in fancy boxes or tins, but the Five Star Football box will turn into a display case once it’s opened.

There is a clear plastic panel on top of a box with a wood-like finish.

The box could display horizontal, vertical or booklet cards, according to a representative on Topps’ Football Twitter account.

This is just a mockup, so the box could change by the time it comes out for its scheduled February release.

    Not sure why but this annoys me.

    The box might end up worth more than the cards inside.

    That should more than make up for the fact that it costs $500 and the cards inside are only worth $100. Got me last year, not this year.
