    2012 Topps Platinum

    2012 Topps Platinum
    Per Box items:

    20 packs per box
    5 cards per pack
    2 Rookie on-card autographs per box
    1 autographed patch relic per box

    Topps sell sheet

    The standard sized base set cards feature a color action shot of the player super-imposed on a silver background. The set name, player name and position are all centered on the top and bottom of the card fronts. The player picture is framed with simple lined graphics. The cards are trimmed with the team’s primary color. The card backs are photo-less and are verticle in layout. The white background card backs detail moderate biographical information, last season and career statistics and career highlights. The ruby parallels are twice as thick card stock, and the rookie cards have a chrome finish.

    What I pulled:
    97 unique cards, no duplicates
    74 base set cards, 49/150, 49% of the base set
    (56 veteran cards, 18 chrome rc)
    19 ruby parallels (one per pack)
    1 die-cut insert
    2 autographs
    1 auto/relic patch

    Base card front and back:


    The inserts: (not all scanned)
    Ruby parallels 5, 9, 14, 18, 21, 28, 46, 47, 54, 58, 64, 68, 70, 74, 80, 85, 93, 94, 99
    Die-Cut Mohamed Sanu



    The Hits:
    T.Y. Hilton auto #1/99
    Joe Adams auto redemption
    Doug Martin 3-color auto Patch #/250


    ************************************************** ********************************

    2012 Topps Platinum is one of the first high-end football set of the year. The overall quality is high. The glossy chrome and refractor like finish take finger prints easily though. And of course there is the ever present ‘chrome curl.’ The product has a nice mix of veteran stars and rookies. The parallel ruby cards look real sharp. The inserts and hits look real nice, but this product does have redemptions. I have never liked them and never will. I recommend 2012 Topps Platinum for both set collectors and prospectors.

    The Bottom Line:
    I give 2012 Topps Platinum a buy rating. Two boxes plus some light trading should net a complete set. The parallel set will be fun to chase. Beware of redemptions though. Buy a box and trade your Tim Tebow cards to me!


    The Final Score:

    Final Ratings (Out of 10):
    Base set collect-ability: 5/10
    Big-hit Hunter: 9/10
    Prospector Hunter: 9
    Value: 7/10
    Overall Quality: 9/10

    Overall: 39/50 (78% = C)
    The biggest drawback being that set collectors will 2+ boxes for a complete set.

    Topps sent me this box to review for Full Spectrum Baseball. As always I am offering base and insert cards to members here for a SASE.

    Thanks to Topps for making this review possible!

    Just posted on your baseball Triple Threads break thread. If no one has claimed them, I'd love #64 and #94 from the Ruby Parallels along with any base of Eli Manning or Tim Tebow. Thanks again!
