2011 Topps football jumbo boxes are getting an upgrade.

The company announced Tuesday that it would be including two autographs and one rookie patch relic per box.

With the news, Topps also released a preliminary mock-up of a patch card featuring the Carolina Panthers’ top draft pick, Heisman trophy winner Cam Newton.

Topps retained its NFL trading card license just prior to the start of the 2010 season after the league initially had left the company out of its plans.

2011 Topps football is set for a late July release.

Any customer missing an autograph from their box “will be taken care of” according to Topps.  Topps says to mail in the box’s UPC code to  receive a Gypsy Queen replacement autograph card.

I’m not sure what links you’d like to have live and it appears as if there’s some HTML coding involved there.  You may want to handle this if it’s something you guys want to do.

I posted a story on 14WFIE.com today and linked the phrase “Panama Hats”. I assume, considering the page rank of the site, that’s a VERY nice score for the company  😉


Looks like a lot of links from the PRWeb release.  They really should be Facebooking/Tweeting these shouldn’t they?
