I was brutal last year during our review of Topps Inception Football giving it one of the worst ratings we’ve ever handed out. While the cards were great looking and it was a fun break, dealing with the delicate edges negated most everything because in card collecting condition is king. Most of the cards had cornering and chipping issues straight out of the pack. The major point I was trying to make was Inception Football would never achieve its full potential until Topps devised a plan to protect the edges of the cards.
With the 2013 version of Inception, Topps has resolved these issues and even tweaked some of the design elements to make this release the comeback product of the year. This is a fantastic looking set of cards with great on-card and jumbo swatch hits with smooth surfaces and sharp edges and cornering.
Inception Football falls into our premium cards category. Each hobby box contains 1 – 7 card pack with 1 memorabilia and 2 autograph cards per box.
Here is a look at the cards we pulled.
