Their NFL trading card contract continues to wind to a close but not before the release of 2015 Topps Supreme Football, a high-end product released Monday, February 29. Supreme has one pack per box, with four cards in each pack. Topps promises one low-number hit in each box, which could be an autograph, a relic card or an autographed relic card.
Box prices online are between $65 and $75 at present. A full checklist is available for viewing or download at the bottom of this page along with a link to boxes for sale.
Base cards will feature parallels in copper, violet (numbered to 99), gold (50), green (25) and red (1/1), along with 1/1 printing plates.
Topps will be offering several types of autographs to chase. Supreme Autographed Rookies will honor the top first-year players from 2015. There will be gold parallels of these cards, along with green (numbered to 25) and 1/1 red and printing plate versions.
Autographed Retired and Veteran Autographs will feature up to 30 subjects who are, well, retired or veteran NFL stars. The base cards will be numbered to 99 or less, and there will be parallels in gold, green (numbered to 10) and 1/1s of red and printing plate cards.
Autographs also will be offered as duals, quads and dual autograph patch book cards. The duals will feature up to 50 subjects and will have 1/1 red parallels. The quads will be numbered to 5 and have 10 players. The dual auto patches will included up to 20 players that are rookies, veterans and retired players. This too will include 1/1 parallels.
Autographed QB Player book cards will sport a horizontal design, featuring a rookie, veteran or retired player with an autograph, along with that player’s favorite hand-drawn play on the opposing side of the book. Those cards will be numbered to 5.
Inscription Autograph book cards are similar, except the right-hand side of the book will feature an inscription that will be hand-signed in silver ink on a black background.
Autographs on relic cards will be sticker versions. Supreme Autograph Patch cards will be numbered and will have parallels in gold (numbered to 25), green (10) and red (1/1). Quad relics, in addition to numbered base versions, will have parallels in gold (numbered to 10), green (5) and red (1/1).
An even scarcer version will be the Supreme Autographed Jumbo Patch relic, with green parallels numbered to 5 and 1/1 versions. Book card variations will be 1/1s.
Straight relic cards in 2015 Topps Supreme Football will be offered in several versions. Rookie quad patch cards will highlight 40 different players, with four patches per card. These also will have parallels in gold (numbered to 25), green (10) and red (1/1). Veteran quad patches will target 25 NFL players and will contain three jersey swatches and a jersey patch. Those will be numbered, and a 1/1 Platinum parallel is a premium pull.
The last bunch of relics are 1/1s and include Supreme Grip (pieces of player-worn gloves), Supreme Leather (pieces from a player-handled NFL football), Supreme Tag (pieces of a laundry tag from a player-worn Nike jersey), Supreme Spiral (featuring the football laces of a player-handled NFL ball) and Supreme NFL Logo Shield (featuring the NFL shield from a player-worn Nike jersey).
