Topps teases Five Star – No fair!


By Susan Lulgjuraj | Contributing Editor

After a well-received rookie debut, Topps Five Star Football is back for a sophomore campaign.

The company released some teaser photos earlier this week to get football fans excited for the high-end product ready to come out in mid-February.

As you can see by the preview photos, inscriptions are very popular this year. Inscriptions can give a more personal feel to the card, adding a little something extra for collectors.

The checklist for Five Star includes rookies, veterans and retired players.

There is just one pack per box (which retails close to $500) and five cards in a pack. Each pack will have four autographs and one jumbo jersey or patch card.

Check out the First Look on Five Star done back in September for more details on the product, after looking at the cards Topps has already received from players.

    $500 a pack….no way to make any money. You hit 4 superstar autos and a prime patch and still won’t get $500 back.

    Topps is ridiculous on the over-prices boxes. I just purchased a box of Bowman Sterling (almost $300 after taxes) and 2 days later purchased a retail box of Topps Chrome. I did have a nice hit in the Chrome. I hit a Cam Newton Bowman Chrome Gold Refractor ser#d to 99. As an experiment I sold all the Bowman Sterling autos and jersey cards. They all sold for less than the Cam did! It sold for $96 and the Sterling stuff sold for a combined $82. I had a very similar experience with last years Sterling. I am done with Topps for good this time!!! Panini it is!!!
