2009 Topps Unique Football

2009 Topps Unique Football

Box Price: $110

Good: Awesome design, tons of potential hits, plenty of numbered rookie cards.

Bad: Hits seem a bit toned down when compared to Topps Unique Baseball, parallels get old fast.

The Bottom Line: 2009 Topps Unique Football doesn't measure up to its baseball counterpart but still makes for an interesting and entertaining experience.

Staff Rating:
4.0 / 5.0

Design
Topps Unique is a great looking football card set. The base set features an ultra modern sleek blackish grey design that gives the cards a premium quality feel sure to appeal to a large variety of collectors. The insert sets are generally just as good-looking. The only flaw in terms of design comes in the form of the bright red parallels scattered throughout the set, which stick out like eyesores.

Checklist
The checklist is made up of a purely modern cast of NFL vets which are coupled with a comprehensive crop of 2009 NFL rookies. Where the checklist really shines is in its untold number of different combinations of unique game worn patch cards and autograph hits, which give credence to the set's name. Just take a quick look through eBay and you'll see just how many different hits have already surfaced.

Value
Each hobby box of Topps Unique boasts an average of three hits - typically one patch card, one jersey card, and one autographed card. You can also expect to walk away from a box break with well over a dozen serial numbered rookie cards, several parallels, and a host of cool looking base cards. The cumulative effect warrants the current price tag of $110-$125 per box.

Enjoyability
I think the Topps Unique brand is a very welcome addition to the Topps lineup. There are so many possible great pulls to be had from this project that it stays interesting to the very last pack. If you haven't tried a pack, or better yet a box, of either the baseball or football incarnation of Topps Unique strongly recommend giving it a try.

  1. I would give this product a 3/5. All of the case hits are good, but i think the base cards lack a lot of depth
