2013 Topps Strata Football Rookie Variations Guide

2013 Topps Strata Football Rookie Variations Guide

If you're a player collector, team collector or set builder, you may want to play close attention to what you're getting with 2013 ToppsĀ  Strata Football. Like last year, the set has both hobby and retail versions. Like last year, rookies in both versions use different photos. The result is 50 different 2013 Topps Strata Football rookie variations.

For the most part, you need a very keen eye to tell the differences between the two. Most of the photos are very subtle in their changes. Balls switch hands, players turn different ways and things like that.

Shop for 2013 Topps Strata Football rookies.

From a collecting standpoint, neither should be very expensive. Strata is one of the more affordable sets of the year. So it's not a pricey short print situation.

What if things were a little easier?

They are.

Below you'll see side-by-side comparisons of the 2013 Topps Strata Football hobby and retail rookies so you know which version you're buying.

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.
