Football fans, get over to Steve’s Sports Cards! The New Topps Platinum Football Cards are out. 2 Autographed Rookie Cards per box.

Look for the hottest autographs from the 2013 NFL Rookie Class.
The 150-card base set will feature 50 Rookie Cards. The Rookie Cards will feature several chrome parallels cards such as X-Fractor, Black, Gold, Red, BCA and Military Refractors, and a Superfractor and Printing Plates.
Panini America’s venerable Certified Football franchise is evolving right before our very eyes. And the evolution is one collectors will instantly recognize — and appreciate — when 2013 Certified Football arrives this week!
From the Panini Blog:
For starters, there’s a fresh face lift on the brand’s calling-card Freshman Fabric RCs. There’s the addition of base Rookie Card counterparts (without autographs or memorabilia) for the 40 players who attended the 2013 NFLPA Rookie Premiere. There’s the glorious expansion of last year’s jumbo-memorabilia tribute to the NFL’s greatest players that began with Elway Collection and will continue in 2013 by honoring two of the greatest running backs of all time: Barry Sanders and Emmitt Smith. Oh, there’s more.
There’s the existence of three Hot Boxes per 24 box case (one in each eight-box inner case) that will replace every base card with special Platinum parallel versions. Certified’s trademark Fabric of the Game insert returns in all of its glory, as do the staple Mirror parallels with Red, Blue, Gold, Emerald and Black versions numbered from 250 all the way down to 1.
Each box of 2013 Certified Football will deliver four autograph or memorabilia cards (at least one autograph guaranteed) and three Mirror parallels.
We’ll have much more on one of the football hobby’s longest-running, best-selling brands in the coming weeks right here on The Knight’s Lance. But for now, enjoy this fascinating first look at the product.
