Want to Know What’s Hot in 2012 Topps Valor Football?

For those who can handle the hefty price tag and risks that come with it, 2012 Topps Valor Football has a lot to offer. The new high-end release comes with one of the most distinct themes of the year. The gladiator feel carries through every aspect of the set, from the design to the subset and insert names. Even the box itself is shaped like a shield.

Every 2012 Topps Valor Football hobby box comes with a pair of rookie autographs and a veteran signature. There's also a rookie relic. Throw in all the different parallels and combinations and the product is loaded with low-numbered hits. Further bolstering its appeal is that fact that the majority of autographs are signed on-card.

Something collectors may not want to look over are the base cards. Numbered to just 170 copies, they represent some of the toughest rookie cards of 2012. Even without an autograph, the rarity and distinct look could give them strong legs well into the future. Although the 100-card set isn't very big, with just two base cards per box, landing any given player is tough -- especially when you're looking at around $140+ per box. Over the long-term, these base cards could create some waves.

Not surprising, early sales are all about Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson. Just like almost every other set this year, collectors are chasing their autographs and high-end memorabilia pieces. Wilson doesn't have a lot of autographs in the set, though. Griffin and Luck are short prints in key areas, but they're still represented throughout the checklist.

The veteran autographs are also garnering a fair bit of attention. With so many sets focused almost exclusively on rookie signatures over the past couple of years, lots of retired and established stars are given a chance to shine here.
