2015 Topps Inception Football is due for a return engagement, arriving in the early part of the NFL pre-season.
Each one pack box of Inception (likely about $90-100 at retail) contains two veteran base cards, one base green parallel, another base parallel, two autographs or auto relics and one Jumbo relic or patch card. Topps says autographs will be on card and all will be distributed in packs–no redemptions.
While images depict fairly generic images of players, Topps says they’ll be shown in their new NFL uniforms on images taken at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere held after this spring’s 2015 Draft.
While the autograph content of Inception is centered on rookies, the base set will be 100 veteran players. There will be several parallels including Green, Purple, Magenta (# to 99), Red (# to 75), Orange (# to 50), Blue (# to 25), new 1/1 Diamond and Framed Printing Plates (1/1).
Highlights from the Autographed Relics available in 2015 Topps Inception Football are:
Autographed Jumbo Patches including 7 parallels
Autograph Patch Book Cards numbered to 5
Autograph Laundry Tag Book Cards: Rookies featuring a signature and an NFL Nike laundry tag numbered to 5
