Each 2012 Topps Five Star Football rookie card has three parallels, each of which have a jumbo swatch: Gold (#/55), Rainbow (#/25) and Five Star (1/1). That means in some instances, the Gold parallel is more plentiful than the base card. Besides the serial number, a quick way to tell a base rookie card from a parallel is the shape of the relic window. Base rookie cards come with a circular swatch. Parallels have a longer piece that's somewhat like a ribbon.
