2014 Topps Platinum Football returns with a slick rainbow foil design, lots of rookie autographs, plenty of parallels and more. Hobby boxes come with three hits including a rookie autographed patch card and two additional on-card rookie autographs.

The base set has 150 cards, 100 veterans and 50 rookies. Rookies get several levels of parallels including X-Fractors (five per box), Black Refractors (one per box), Pulsar Refractors (#/99), Purple (#/75), Gold Die-Cut (#/50), Red (#/25), BCA Pink (#/10), STS Camo (#/10), Printing Plates and Superfractors (1/1).

The most abundant signed cards in 2014 Topps Platinum Football are the Autograph Rookie Refractors that land two per hobby box. All are signed on-card. Like the base set, there are lots of Refractor parallels: Black, Blue (#/99), Pulsar (#/50), Purple (#/25), Gold (#/15), BCA Pink (#/10), STS Camo (#/10), Red (#/5) and Superfractors (1/1). Rookie autographs also have hobby-exclusive Printing Plates.

Multi-signed cards are randomly inserted in the form of Dual Rookie (#/25), Triple Rookie (#/10) and Hexagraph Double-Sided Rookie Autographs (#/10).

The one-per-box Autograph Rookie Refractor Patch cards use pieces of player-worn memorabilia and sticker signatures. Sticking with the parallel theme, there are lots here as well, all numbered. These include Black (#/125), Green (#/99), Pulsar (#/50), Blue (#/25), Purple (#/10), Red (#/5) and Superfractors (1/1). There are also a handful of additional one-of-one Red Refractors that come with distinct pieces like the NFL Shield, team logo, pigskin and NFL glove.

A limited number of veterans get similar autographed patch cards. Parallels are Purple (#/25), Pulsar (#/15), Gold (#/10), Red (#/5) and Superfractor (1/1).

Autographed Refractor Platinum Patch cards feature both rookies and veterans. Numbered to 5, they have jumbo patch swatches and use sticker signatures.

Other signed memorabilia cards in 2014 Topps Platinum Football include Dual Autographed Dual Patch (#/25) and Dual Autographed Rookie Refractor Jumbo Patch Book cards (1/1).

Platinum Rookie Patches are numbered cards than come with a jumbo patch. These are inserted one per case and exclusive to hobby.

With so many autographs and parallels, there isn't much room in 2014 Topps Platinum Football for many basic inserts. Platinum Die-Cut Rookies land one per box. These have one-of-one autograph versions as well. Die-Cut STS and BCA Ribbon cards return as case hits. Both can be found with autographed versions that are numbered to 10.
