2013 Topps Inception Football Rookie Autographs Guide

2013 Topps Inception Football Rookie Autographs Guide

Now in its third season, Topps Inception has carved out an identity for its distinct look and early on-card rookie autographs. As far as the base rookie autographs go, not much has changed with 2013 Topps Inception Football. The basic look fits in with the previous two years, delivering a non-traditional background and an intense player shot. The look might not be for everyone, but few will argue that these don't stand out.

The 2013 Topps Inception Rookie Autographs checklist has 40 players. The biggest names are all here, including EJ Manuel, Geno Smith, Eddie Lacy and Tavon Austin. It is worth noting that there is a gap in the set as there is no #123. The checklist ends at #141.

Base versions of the cards are not serial numbered, although there are several parallels that are:

  • Green #/99
  • Purple #/75
  • Yellow #/50
  • Red #/25
  • Inception 1/1

2013 Topps Inception Football Rookie Autographs are numbered as part of the base set. That would qualify them as rookie cards, even if the parallels and other low-numbered autographed inserts might command higher values.

Below is a full look at the Rookie Autographs including a full checklist, images, team details and more. While we tried to show the base images for the entire set, a couple of parallels have been used when those weren't available.

I just can’t by autos where the player doesn’t even try. Some of these are just plain horrible.
