Sorting Out the 2013 Topps Football Retail Exclusives

Ribbon Patch Cards

Retail exclusives are nothing new to sports cards. In fact, it's common in all sorts of areas. From clothes to toys to food, certain stores get exclusive access to certain items. In the case of 2013 Topps Football, there are several retail-only offerings. If you're planning to sample them all, be prepared to hop around to different stores and buy several types of packs and boxes.

None of these exclusives are likely to be big-time hits. Rather, they simply add another layer to collect. Team and player collectors will likely be among the biggest chasers when it comes to these retail cards. For those looking for the bigger hits, hobby and jumbo boxes are definitely the way to go.

This guide has details on all the 2013 Topps Football retail exclusives including where to find them. We've also added detailed checklists. You can easily navigate between sets by using the tabs above.

2013 Topps Football Commemorative Ribbon Patch Cards

Manufactured patch cards have been a go-to exclusive for Topps blaster boxes for several years now. The Commemorative Ribbon Patch cards carry on the tradition with a big checklist that's made even bigger thanks to variations.

The cards have a ribbon patch on one side with a team logo in the middle. The basic checklist has 63 cards. Packaged one per blaster box, that's a big set in its own right. However, each card has both a BCA Pink ribbon and a Military Camo ribbon. On top of that, there are Pink and Camo parallels that have an NFL Shield instead of the team logo. These are numbered to 99 copies each. For player collectors, that's four versions of each card.

2013 Topps Football Ribbon Patch Adrian Peterson Camo Shield 260x182 Image 2013 Topps Football Ribbon Patch Colin Kaepernick Pink Shield 260x181 Image

Every ten-pack blaster box comes with one Commemorative Ribbon Patch. These are packaged on their own, kind of like an eleventh pack.

1969 Rookies

2013 Topps Football 1969 Rookies

Like last year, there are exclusive rookie inserts available at both Target and WalMart. While they look slightly different, numerically they combine to form one larger set. Inspired by the 1969 Topps Football design, 15 rookies have two cards each in the master set. Odd numbers are blue-bordered cards found at WalMart while even-numbered cards have red borders and are found at Target. Put them all together and you have a 30-card set.

But that's not all. The entire 30-card set also has a green-bordered version. These are found only in specially marked 72-card retail hanger boxes. A headline across the top of the box notes the possibility of green-bordered cards. It appears as though they are one per box.

Rookie Jumbo Relics

Besides the blue-bordered exclusives, Wal-Mart also has a set of Rookie Jumbo Relics that aren't available anywhere else. The cards are inserted in specially marked hanger boxes that cost $14.99. The cards have the same basic design as other Rookie Relics found in the set, only with a larger piece of memorabilia. The swatches are also basic jersey pieces while the smaller hobby versions have patches.

Ryan's collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection.

  1. These type of cards are very exciting to collect. Having acces to retail exclusive items are a fantastic way to capture a new market for the young collector and or for a novice collector like myself. One of my most memorable retail exclusive cards came in the form of 2012 Topps Chrome blaster boxes with an added relic card. I have even purchased a 2012 Topps to see what the captains patch looked like. I also recall the “Mega Holiday Special” that was either a Andrew Luck or a RGIII. I must admit, my all time favorite set that was only available at Target was the 2012 Panini (Pepsi Max) Contenders blaster box. These blaster boxes had a “Rookie of the Week” card portraying 17 players each week. I finally completed my set. From a nostalgic point of view, this set was very special to me as it was my very first complete set. I have yet to find the last 5 key cards (These were Prizm Red Die-Cuts numbered to #/35) that portrays players in the “Rookie of the Year”. I will definitely look into acquiring one of the pink ribbon 2013 Topps patch cards.

  2. To Ryan,

    I went to Walmart today. They finally had the 2013 Topps “Blaster Box” in stock. After my purchase, Mrs. Toshi and I eagerly opened our ten packs. There was an additional pack taped to the outer box in clear plastic wrap. This made the total packs come to eleven. We finally opened the patch card packet, we received a Vincent Jackson Military Camo patch card! Thank you for the valuable information, it’s always an essential collecting guide for us prior to our purchases of retail and or hobby products!

  3. How to find all 2013 NFL hobby box products produced that would include a Tom Brady autographed card?
