Deep pocketed fans of new products will have another high end card/memorabilia/patch football product to await once the pigskins are packed away next month.
Topps throws it's hat into the ring with 2006 Paradigm Football, the latest super premium high end "card" release. The product may say 2006 but Topps tells us it won't debut until well after the last Pro Bowler has left Hawaii (sometime in late February).
