2012 Topps Chrome has hit the retail outlets, plenty of retail boxes were there but I only grabbed two, three packs out of a unsearched box, and one rak-pack. Here’s the totals from the break.

(1) Black Border Refractor Michael Egnew RC 123/299

(2) Blue Border Refractor Brock Osweiler 135/199, Ndamukong Suh 35/199

(1) Purple Border Refractor Vick Ballard 80/499

(3) 1984 Rookie’s Ronnie Hilman, TJ Graham, Michael Floyd

(5) Refractors Wes Welker, Fletcher Cox, Devon Wylie, LeGarrette Blount, Christian Ponder

(1) Rookie Reprint Aaron Rodgers

(3) 1957 Topps Rookies Kendall Wright, Coby Fleener, Andrew Luck

(2) Tallboys Ronnie Hillman, Coby Fleener (On the back of both cards are the words “The signing of all Topps autograph cards is witnessed by a Topps representative to guarantee authenticity) Yet neither card has an auto on it and I find it hard to believe that I hit two autos and both weren’t signed. This could make faking these autos very easy to resell for the collectors that may not know the difference.

(3) Orange Refractor Jarius Wright, Blaine Gabbert, Carson Palmer

(6) X-Fractors Ben Roethlisberger, Devon Still, Riley Reiff, Reggie Bush, Antonio Gates, Nick Toon

(2) Rookie Relics Joe Adams Ronnie Hillman (Refractor 44/150)

These cards look great and have alot of nice inserts also a very colorful set. Each blaster has a Exclusive Rookie Relic.

Luck Joins Panini

Posted: October 15, 2012 in Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts, Panini

While many thought that another basketball star was going to be Panini’s next big superstar to sign a deal with them, some were surprized to learn that it was from the gridiron. Panini announced this afternoon that they have signed Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck to an exclusive multi-year autograph and memorabilia agreement. During the recent Colts bye-week Luck sat down to sign and sign and sign, check out the video from Panini below.

Leaf Trading Cards has filed a lawsuit against soon to be No. 1 Pick Andrew Luck. This all started when the former Stanford QB’s attorney issued a cease and desist letter demanding that Leaf stop selling cards showing Luck when he played in the 2008 U.S. Army All-American Bowl because they infringed on Luck’s publicity rights, but as we know from other lawsuits like the Topps Buzz Aldrin’s moonwalk suit, Luck should have no luck in this one.  Leaf Trading Cards added in a statement that they were “disappointed that it was forced to submit this matter to the judicial system.”
