2014 Topps Fire Football Cards
If you're a fan of plain designs, you're probably going to hate 2014 Topps Fire Football. However, if you're intrigued by something that isn't business as usual in the design department, it might be a different story. Hobby boxes of the debuting brand come with a pair of autographs and two relic cards.
The 2014 Topps Fire Football base set has 150 cards. This breaks down to 100 current and retired greats, and 50 rookies. Parallels are plentiful, with at least two in every pack. They include Fire Wood (one per pack), Flame Foil (one per pack), Purple (#/499), Blue (#/299), Green (#/99), Gold (#/50), Onyx (#/25) and hobby-only Red (1/1).
Autographed Rookies are essentially signed versions of their base cards. The checklist has more than 40 players. Parallels come in the form of Green (#/75), Gold (#/50), Onyx (#/25) and Red (1/1).
2014 Topps Fire Football also has about 50 Veteran Autographs. All are numbered but to varying quantities.
Dual Autographs (#/25) and Triple Autographs (#/15) have a mix of rookie and veteran signers.
Rookie Autograph Patches are extremely tough and come with a variety of one-of-one swatches like Nike Swooshes, laundry tags and NFL Shields.
Dual (#/10) and Triple (#/5) Autographed Relics come with signatures and swatches from multiple players. Both have one-of-one Patch parallels.
The majority of the product's memorabilia cards are Fire Relics. More than 40 players are in the set, which includes Green (#/75), Gold (#/50), Onyx (#/25) and Red (1/1) parallels.
Fire Jumbo Patches (#/15) come with larger swatches while Dual Combo Patches (#/25) have pieces from a pair of players. Both have Onyx (#/5) and Red (1/1) versions.
2014 Topps Fire Football has a quartet of basic insert sets that carry the burning theme. Out of This World Rookies (25 cards, 1:5 packs) features top first-year talent and casts them against strange, almost apocalyptic landscapes. Numbered Red parallels are a case hit. Forged by Fire (35 cards, 1:10) is another rookie-focused set, this time die-cut. Competitive Fire (30 cards, 1:10) spotlights teammates and rivals with a mix of rookies, active players and retired greats. Ring of Fire (ten cards, 1:20 packs) isn't a tribute to Johnny Cash. Rather, the hobby-exclusive insert features players who have won at least one Super Bowl.
