2014 Topps Valor Football Cards
So Topps Valor wasn't a "one and done" after all. After skipping last season, 2014 Topps Valor Football marks the brand's return. When it debuted in 2012, Valor was a late-season release that was quickly overshadowed by high-end heavyweights like National Treasures and Five Star. The revamped product comes back much earlier in the season, although still with its focus on battlefield virtues and gridiron heroics.
Every box promises an autographed memorabilia card, a second autograph, a patch card and a jumbo relic.
Leading the hits are Shield of Honor Autograph Patch cards. Subjects feature rookies, veterans and retired players. Rather than traditional color parallels, Valor uses virtues. For these inserts, this translates into Speed (#/99), Strength (#/75), Courage (#/50), Discipline (#/25) and Heart (1/1).
Like Shield of Honor, basic autographs use stickers for autographs. The checklist is somewhat large with more than 40 players. Parallels match up with the themes and numbers from Shield of Honor.
Alliance Autographs have two (#/10), three (#/10) and four (#/5) signatures from teammates.
Both the one-per-box Patch cards and Jumbo Relics are numbered. Jumbo Relics use a similar approach as those from 2013 Topps Supreme. The memorabilia piece is layered underneath a die-cut player image.
Rather than traditional color parallels, Valor uses virtues. Shield of Honor, Autographs, Jumbo Relics and Patch cards all have Speed (#/99), Strength (#/75), Courage (#/50), Discipline (#/25) and Heart (1/1) parallels.
2014 Topps Valor Football has a 200-card base set that mixes rookies, veterans and retired players. Parallels include Speed (one per hobby pack), Strength (#/499), Courage (#/399), Discipline (#/299), Glory (#/199), Valor (#/99) and Heart (1/1).
