2014 Topps Football Complete Set Box Break and Review

One cannot deny the convenience of having an entire base set presorted and supplied in a custom box.  2014 Topps Football Complete Set NFL Trading Cards offers all of this year’s base cards with a bonus found exclusively in the product, orange border serial numbered parallels.

Clearly, this package gets classification as a boxed set for the purposes of this review. Inside you’ll find the complete 440 card base set, no alternate photo versions or inserts, and each boxes contains a pack of five Orange-Bordered parallels.

Here is a little of what we found inside the complete set box.

Russell Wilson, front and back 
 DeMarco Murray, Peyton Manning, J.J. Watt 
Johnny Manziel, Derek Carr, Kelvin Benjamin
 Green Bay Packers, Antonio Brown

Here are the 5 orange-bordered parallels #/96.
 Jeremy Kerley, front and back
 J.J. Watt, Chicago Bears
Jordy Nelson,  Lache Seastruck

Overall look
The base design is smarting looking with the type of bordering and foil accents normally reserved for higher end products. Photo selection is very good.

Does the checklist of players feel complete?
The checklist is quite extensive, pleasing a wide range of collectors.  An emerging Rookie class enhances the collection.

Are there any bonus cards included?
Yes.  There are the 5 orange-bordered parallels. They are all numbered to 96. It could prove to be a difficult task to put together an entire orange-bordered set, but there should be a few brave souls out there willing to take on the task.

Boxed Set vs. Set Building
No doubt, these cards are fun to collect pack by pack, but having the complete packaged set is convenient.

4 1/2 out of 5

2014 Topps Football Complete Set NFL Trading Cards is a very good set housed in in one convenient package.

  1. Even when numbered out of # / 230, the boxed-set exclusive Orange parallels seem hard to find if you're searching out a specific baseball player. The Orange Josh Reddick parallel was one of the toughest ones for me to find while building my Super Rainbow from 2013 Topps Baseball. I would imagine a similar situation exists for the football parallels if you're a player collector seeking a certain card.
