2013 Topps Football Retail Factory Set Rookie Variations Guide

2013 Topps Football Retail Factory Set Rookie Variations Guide

Before you go and call your 2013 Topps Football variation sets complete, make sure you check out what the set's retail factory set has. Each comes with five exclusive rookie variations.

Although each of the players has a pack-inserted short print variation, these factory set cards are different. Packaged together as a bonus, they offer a third 2013 Topps Football card for Tavon Austin, Eddie Lacy, E.J. Manuel, Geno Smith and Manti Te'o.

If you're looking for the factory set rookie variations, make sure you pick up the right one. 2013 Topps Football also has hobby factory sets. These come with their own exclusive, five Orange parallels. The retail factory sets are easy to spot because they advertise the rookie variations on the main panel under the main Topps logo.

Because they're sold as part of a set, not a lot of variation singles have popped up so far. It's unlikely they'll surface in large numbers, although they're not rare either.

Below is a side-by-side comparison of the rookie base cards with the factory set variations. Basic variation short prints can be found here.
