2011 Topps Platinum Football
Rookies are on display in 2011 Topps Platinum Football, a set that emphasizes a deep checklist of first-year autographs and shiny goodness. Multiple levels of Refractors will keep player and team collectors busy. With so many rookies, autograph and patch combinations, regular veteran base sets should be somewhat easy to track down and complete. The plethora of patch cards will lead to many attractive pieces, however it should be noted that Topps is listing the rookie patches as being player-worn, while veterans are game-used. While the timing of the set's release should tip collectors off that the rookie pieces aren't game-used, it's smart to remember this going in and set their value expectations accordingly.
