2011-12 Topps 5-Star Football Sneak Peek

Topps released images of several more autographed cards from the upcoming 2011-12 Topps Five Star football card product on Tuesday.  The latest edition will mark the company’s third year for the high end football offering, which has been quite successful since entering the market, despite the hefty price tag.

2011 Topps Five Star Joe Namath autographThe previews included cards of Super Bowl stars Joe Namath, Jerry Rice and Kurt Warner as well as a Cam Newton-Mark Ingram dual autograph rookie card and an Aaron Rodgers/Alex Green dual signed card.  While the latter might be a little strange, the inscriptions on the Hall of Famers bode well for a product that will hit store shelves at least a couple of weeks after the season comes to an end with Super Bowl XLVI.

Boxes are expected to cost around $350 wholesale for four premium on-card autograph cards plus one jumbo jersey or patch card promised in each pack.   Autographs are on card and feature retired stars, current stars and rookies.
