The Hottest 2012 Topps Magic Football Cards

The Hottest 2012 Topps Magic Football Cards

Led by an old-time look and a ton of autographs, 2012 Topps Magic Football has a lot of potential bang for a mid-range product. It's also notable for capturing a couple of regular-season surprises that haven't been in a lot of 2012 products.

Like a lot of other retro-themed sets, there's a built-in fan base for the look and style. That in itself may not drive the secondary market, but you can be sure that there are probably a lot more people chasing sets than with a lot of other products. The 2012 Topps Magic Football base set has a pair of debuts for the company this season. Until now, Alfred Morris hadn't been included in a Topps-branded rookie card. There's also Colin Kaepernick, who surprised everyone in the second half of the season. Kaepernick's only other card, so far, in a 2012 football product was an autographed insert in 2012 Panini Gridiron.

The main chase in 2012 Topps Magic Football comes from the deep list of autographs. Hobby boxes deliver a trio of autographed cards, most of which highlight the year's rookies. The base set alone has more than 150 autographed parallels. The set also has low-numbered mini autographs, mini card book autographs, '48 Magic Autographs and more.

Other intriguing inserts include historical coin cards and low-numbered player cards with coins embedded in them.

2012 Topps Magic Football isn't likely to bring record-breaking single-card sales, but with its strong focus, it should remain steady for a long time if it finds its audience. The football side of the hobby doesn't have as many retro-themed as baseball, so that at least sets Magic apart from the pack.

Below is a real-time look at the 50 hottest 2012 Topps Magic Football cards listed on eBay right now based on what's being watched the most. The results are always updating themselves so you can always get a sense of what's popular in the set.
