The Topps Legends site finally went live this week, and opened to mix reviews from collectors. Unlike the Topps Diamond baseball codes where you always got a card and then a “dig” to get a ring, the Legends site is slightly different. Collectors can uncover a special die-cut Super Bowl Legends card or one of the three types of digital items; Super Bowl coins, Super Bowl jerseys or digital rings.

I had 10 cards here’s a look at what I was able to unlock.

1) Lions Ring

2) Roger Staubach Ring

3) Joe Namath Card (Right)

4) Baltimore Colts – Super Bowl V

5) Kansas City Chiefs – Super Bowl IV

6) Washington Redskins – Super Bowl XXVI

7)New Orleans Saints – Super Bowl XLIV

8 ) Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Super Bowl XXXVII

9)Rams Ring

10) New England Patriots – Super Bowl XXXVIII

DPMsportcards is proud to bring you yet another blaster box break. 2011 Topps Lineage is on top this morning, so lets get rippin and see what we got.

It’s the event we’ve all waited for, The National Sports Collectors Convention and that it was coming back to the best city in the U.S.A made it even better. Flash back to about 9 months ago, that’s when the Dr. told me and the wife that we were expecting our first child, yes the week of The National. So DPM, will not be in Chicago but plans are in the works for next year in Baltimore.  I will be posting stories, links, and tweets from other collectors this week that are at the National so be sure to check back often. Have a great week, collectors…..
