2011 Topps Supreme Football NFL Trading Cards Box Break Recap And Review

Topps Supreme Football is a product that continues to live up to its name.  With striking design, a great veteran checklist and deep rookie class, 2011 Topps Supreme Football will keep most high-end collectors very happy.   But if you can swing it, this is a product that excels when it is purchased by the case.

Topps Supreme falls firmly into our ultra premium cards category.  Each box contains 8 4 cards, 2 base cards numbered to 429, 1 base parallel and 1 hit that can be an autograph, autograph relic or relic card.

Here are the cards we pulled from the box.

 Von Miller, front and back, Austin Pettis

 Jerry Rice violet parallel #/75

Christian Ponder Auto Dual Relic numbered 07/15
(As astute readers pointed out to me because I didn't catch it, this is an eBay 1/1)

Overall Look
I have to admit, I like the look of this year’s cards over the design of last year, even though those cards were great looking too.  Pardon the pun but the stone background gives these cards weight and helps make the gold accents pop.  All of the numbering and lettering is attractive and easy to read.  The gradated background behind the sticker auto makes it look great. The coloring for the base parallels work very well.

Quality and Variety of Players
There is a nice mix here of Rookies to Veterans to Retired Stars.  Hits in the product lean more towards the Premiere Rookie Class but there is still the opportunity to pull some major hits from the proven stars of the game.

Thrill Seeking Fulfillment and Experience
It is four cards so it doesn’t take long to determine what you think of your box.  While the ride is short, it is exciting.  This is a good entry point for high-end collectors before they dive into the deep waters of a product like 5 Star.

Buyers Remorse or Speculator's Delight
Supreme is in line with expectations for Ultra Premium boxes across the entire run.  As Ultra Premium boxes go, Supreme is on the less expensive side so you can still temper your commitment.  But the best bet is to look towards cases of Supreme. With 5 out of the 16 boxes contained in a case, your hit will be a relic card, but the other 11 boxes should make up for that as 4 of those hits will be Autographed Relics, 4 will be Auto Rookies, 1 will be a multi player Autograph, 1 will be a single autograph and then there will be 1 more of any of the previously mentioned autographs.   Case purchases should provide a high level of satisfaction.

4 1/2 out of 5

In 2011 Topps Supreme Football you’ll find ultra premium small boxes with big potential.
