2015 Topps Platinum Football Box Break & Review

Topps Platinum.  Isn’t that the product with those thick parallels inside every pack?  You bet!  Its been awhile since I’ve opened a box of Topps Platinum.  In fact, the last time I busted a box of Platinum Football was when I won a contest over at FreedomCardBoard about six years ago.  What ever happened to that guy?  I’m more familiar with Bowman Platinum Baseball because I remember buying boxes of that stuff while attending the 2012 National Sports Collectors Convention in order to get a special blue parallel set.

2015 Topps Platinum Football is a fun rip.  Like I said before, this product is known for containing thick parallels you’ll find in every pack.  Although this year they aren’t quite as thick.  Instead of using fillers (which would normally be thrown out) Topps had the bright idea to make thick parallels instead.  Therefore you at least get a card, and the pack still has something thick inside in an attempt to fool pack searchers.

Topps Platinum Football gained traction with collectors when it was first released in 2009.  Topps remade Platinum Football’s image in 2011, and collectors have seemed to enjoy it even more since.  This year’s set has more sticker autographs than usual.  Those stickers really stick out on the colored refractor patch autographs.  Especially since the area of the card where the sticker is placed is white.  They don’t blend into the background.  The non-colored refractor autographed patches came out well.

By far the best part of this product are the on-card rookie autographs.  These have been the highlight of this product for a long time.  ’15 Platinum’s got crazy designs that incorporate NFL logos in a neat way too.

Boxes cost about $90.00.  You should find (2) rookie autographs, and (1) autographed patch per box.  I squeezed out an extra autographed patch.

Here is what I pulled:

  1. Man love that Collins! Go gmen! If it needs a home let me know!

  2. Finally picked up a Target Valu-Pack and was blown away that Topps finally placed the hardboard in the press correctly so that the regular
    issued cards curve the right way. 3 cheers for Topps – finally.
