2013 Topps Football Variation Short Prints Guide

2013 Topps Football Variation Short Prints Guide

2013 Topps Football certainly has its share of variations. Fifty-five of them to be exact.

Offering a mix of rooies and veterans, the 2013 Topps Football variation short prints cover a lot of ground. However, there isn't much of an easily discernible theme to make them easier to spot in packs. With that in mind, we've compiled this handy guide.

Shop for 2013 Topps Football short prints on eBay.

While not variations, the release also has a pair of rare short prints. The first pictures Tim Tebow with Tom Brady. The second is none other than Cardboard Connection contributor and professional case breaker, Brent Williams (aka brentandbecca). Brent won  a contest last year than earned him his very own football card. Both SSPs are numbered outside the main set.

Below you'll find all of the players with 2013 Topps Football variations and arranged according to their spot on the checklist. We've got images of all their regular cards. When available, we've added variation images (and will continue to do so). Please note that in some cases we've used parallel images. The pictures on the cards themselves are the same. At then end we have also included both short prints.

It's also worth noting that the 2013 Topps Football retail factory set has five additional variations.

  1. Hello,

    Just wanted to say i have a pic of the variant randall cobb if you need it. Also, the J.J. Watt varaints are actually two different card numbers. Not trying to be a picky person. I use your lists like maps to gold mines. So, please dont think im nit picky.

  2. michael strong Thanks for the heads up! I may have a pic of the Cobb. brentandbecca sent a bunch over last night that I need to go through this morning. Thanks!

  3. Card number 402 Aaron Dobson, your description doesn’t match the cards shown. Either it is reversed or maybe the cards are. Great guide though. I’m glad I found this.

  4. Anyone know how the variations fall? Got a jumbo box the other day and I can’t find one. Did get a C. Michael 6/10 red ink auto. So I got that going for me. Thanks

  5. On card 408 you have Crabtree pictured but the one I have is Osi Umenyiora.

  6. I wondered if the variation cards have a different serial number on the back. In some other products, topps lists a different number on the back of variations. The regular cards end in 279. Has anyone noticed a different sequence in the variations? It makes it so much easier to spot them this way.

  7. Rocco Pietrocarlo–> I got a #250 – Calvin Johnson JR and looking at it, yes, the serial numbers are different. This card ends in 321. Thanks for an awesome heads up. Makes the search a little easier :)

  8. EXCELLENT INFO ON TOPPS ’13 NFL EDITION….KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK CARDBOARD CORNER !!!!
    5 STARS ALL THE WAY ——-

  9. Hey just wanted to let ya know how helpful this site has been, ive recently started collecting again, 2012,2013 Topps football ive started. This has been such a great site for me to check up on all my cards and keep my checklist up to date, without missing any of those sneaky base variations. Thanks so much keep up the great work Ryan! So far best pulled has been jumbo eddie lacy rookie relic, but im hoping for more great stuff, saving up for a hobby box now :)

  10. Logan Glad we can help. We have a very hard-working team and do our best.

  11. I haven’t collected cards for a long time, but recently my son started collecting. I’m curious if there is a reason why some of the 2013 Topps football cards have a gold border or camo border instead of a white border.

  12. Mac Those are called parallels – rarer versions of the regular cards. They’re a type of inserts. For the Golds and Camos, they should also have a serial number on the back.

  13. I purchased a 2013 Topps Jimmy Graham that is number 192 and has a gold sparkle background because Jimmy Graham is my favorite player. I thought it was a mini card based no the design but I got it today and it is full sized. I was wondering if it is supposed to be full sized or a mini. And also if I got a fake card

  14. I bought it because he is my favorite. It isn’t gold because he is my favorite player.

  15. I have finally completed my 2913 topps football mini gold set! I’m looking for a couple more #332-Tyler WilsonRC golds. I would like to see some info on his card. I only saw the 1 on ebay and grabbed it up right away. So was there 58 cards of him made or was it short-printed? Does he have any variation cards? Do you have some for sale? lmk Wayne 701-883-4211
