2013 Topps Archives Football Fan Favorites Autographs Guide

2013 Topps Archives Football Fan Favorites Autographs Guide

2013 Topps Archives Football Fan Favorites Autographs Guide 12013 Topps Archives Football is one of the few sets in the last couple of years that stresses autographs from non-rookie players. Part of that is because it's Topps' first football set for 2013, arriving just as the 2013 NFLPA Rookie Premiere kicked off. The only cards with the latest rookies come in the form of redemptions. The 2012 rookie class is well represented in many areas of the set, but most of their autographs are extremely limited. Rather, it's the 2013 Topps Archives Fan Favorites Autographs that are the most prominent signatures in the release.

Shop for 2013 Topps Archives Football Fan Favorites Autographs on eBay.

Fan Favorites Autographs are inserted two per hobby box. All come with on-card signatures. The cards use designs from past sets but with new photos. Many of the players on the checklist are among the base set short prints. These cards use the same image. A Fan Favorites gold foil stamp on the front make the certified autographs easy to tell at a quick glance.

Much like 2012 Topps Archives Baseball, the focus of the checklist is more on popular players, particularly at the local level, rather than the superstars. More than 50 players signed for the set. Among them is Vince Papale who was the subject of the Mark Wahlberg movie, Invincible. On a sad note, Chuck Muncie passed away just days before the set's official release date.

Below is a gallery and checklist of all confirmed 2013 Topps Archives Football Fan Favorites Autographs. Once the final checklist is released, we'll be sure to update.

Anybody know how I get info on 2013 Topps Archives Rookie Autograph Mystery Player #2 and maybe the whole list if possible?


Any word on the Mercury Morris redemption auto from 2013 Topps Archives????


Thanks for the clarification, Ryan!


honest question because i’m simply unsure… all it takes is the year that the set is named? because panini released 2012 prizm baseball just a short time ago, in 2013, just so they could call a bryce harper card a rookie. so if topps just called this 2012, even with the same release date, then they would be rookies?

Jason Potentially, but Topps opted for it to be a 2013 set and it’s marked as such. The lack of pro stats is likely due to production timelines as many were very likely printed before the end of the 2012 season.


Can’t get a straight answer from Topps via Twitter, so maybe you guys know… are the framed 1988 mini autos /25 and the box topper /25 autos for guys like Luck, RG3 and Tannehill considered rookies? They still have only their college stats on the back.

Jason No. This is a 2013 set, therefore they are not rookies.
