Lucky Charms on a 2012 Topps Football Andrew Luck Variation

Andrew Luck's name has made puns for headlines and articles about the young quarterback easy. Topps has taken it a step further with a 2012 Topps Football short print variation. The card includes a blue and white striped rabbit's foot dangling from the front of his pants.

Looking for details on 2012 Topps Football short print variations? We've got a full list here.

Also, the "U" in his last name has been changed into a horseshoe (double visual pun for use of the Colts' logo). But that's not nearly as noticeable as the other addition.

The card is actually one of two 2012 Topps Football Andrew Luck variation short prints. The other shows Luck simply in a different pose where he's getting ready to throw, two hands on the ball. The common Luck rookie card in the set shows the first overall pick looking down field with his arm back.

I don't know about anyone else, but the lucky charms Luck variation reminds me a little of a notorious vintage Star Wars card:

I get the innocence of the Andrew Luck variation. It's cute. But I'm guessing I'm not the only one to do a double-take because of the placement of the lucky charm hanging from Luck's tights.
