Coming on the heels of the very successful baseball Inception product, the football version was recently released. The baseball issue had the major advantage of a very early Yasiel Puig card and his inclusion catapulted the demand for Inception to lengths probably not even dreamed of by Topps executives. As we have Inception Football Box 2013discussed, a 2013 Antonio Brown 2013 Topps InceptionInception football break will have its own challenges as there was a paucity of skill players taken early in the draft and thus any issue which is dependent on rookies is a harder sell to begin the 2013 card season. And with only seven players in the pack/box your chances are not always guaranteed to get a nice hit.

My local card store (Triple Cards, Plano TX) reported passable sales at the $100 level while leading on-line retailers are currently $85-100.

The base cards have a player’s photo set against a solid background with the player’s name and position at the bottom. The backs have biographical information, a brief informational blurb and seasonal and career stats:

Here’s what we pulled:

Topps Inception Green ManningBase Cards: Antonio Brown, Josh Freeman

Green Parallel (#d to 199) Peyton Manning

Yellow Parallel (#d to 75) Dwayne Bowe

Inception Tyler Wilson autographRookie Relics Patch (#d to 93): Dion Jordan

Rookie Autographs Silver Ink (#d to 50); Tyler Wilson

Topps Inception Le'Veon Bell auto relicRookie Jumbo Patch Autographed Purple (#d to 50): Le’Veon Bell

We did OK with what we pulled but obviously you need to score big to make back your investment.  The Manning parallels have been selling for $5-10.

The Steelers have high hopes for Bell.  This particular card has been bringing $45-75 of late, so all things considered at this moment, we’re about even.  You can see what’s up for bid on eBay here.
