2012 Topps Turkey Red Football Variations Guide

2012 Topps Turkey Red Football Variations Guide

Look at your 2012 Topps Turkey Red Football base cards carefully because some have variations. A total of ten cards in the 100-card set have short print versions. All 2012 Topps Turkey Red Football variations have a slightly different photo and don't follow any sort of consistent theme. For many of the variants, the background color may be the easiest way to tell them apart.

While definitely tougher to find than the regular versions of the cards, they aren't impossible to find. That said, the somewhat limited nature of 2012 Topps Turkey Red Football as a whole will likely mean that they get a lot harder to find once the initial wave of breaks dry up. Topps has not released odds for pulling a variation short print.

Here's a full visual guide to the 2012 Topps Turkey Red variations. It has a full checklist, images of both the regular and variant versions and a brief written description of some of the differences.
