Basic 2012 Topps Triple Threads Football rookie cards are limited to 99 numbered copies, making them some of the rarest of the year so far. However, many players have a pair of rookie cards. The basic look is the same, but the die-cut windows used to display the relic pieces vary.

These windows fall under the following patterns:

  • Team/RC
  • Jersey Number/Position
  • Initials/Helmet Icon
  • Three Plain Squares

Further complicating matters are apparent short prints for several top players and may mean no official rookie cards for them in the set. Top picks Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Trent Richardson are all part of this group. They still have lots of autographs in the set, including parallel cards that use the base design. However, these parallels have different colored background and most collectors won't consider them part of the the base set.

Here is a complete list of players we have yet to confirm as having at least one rookie card in the set numbered to 99:

  • 101 Ryan Tannehill
  • 102 Brock Osweiler
  • 110 Andrew Luck
  • 120 Robert Griffin III

It is worth noting that 2012 Topps Triple Threads Football was just released. It's very possible that everyone does have base cards. It is also not confirmed if all players have two versions or just some. We'll continue to dig for information. We've also checked in with Topps and will pass along any further information.

Below you'll find a comprehensive 2012 Topps Triple Threads Football rookie card guide. We've listed confirmed variations and included tons of reference images. We have also noted players who are believed to be short printed or missing from the base set, at least as official rookie cards.
