Over the weekend I was able to pick up a pack of 2o1o Topps Magic Football, just to see what the new design looked like. I am one of the few bloggers who really liked last year’s design. I really liked everything about last year’s release. I thought it would be a tough task to beat out last year’s design.
Topps got it right for a second time. Not just from a base design aspect, but also from an insert point of view. First the base card:
Simple but elegant. I liked the white writing on the black background, and the logo on the bottom. I wish they used the team name logo instead but still I like it. The player picture is fantastic, instead of a photo, they went with a oit/grain effect that came out nice. Next up, the black border parallel:
I always like the mini cards. Now I’m not in love with the black border as much because they should have matched the black border with the black from the name frame. Next up autographs:
The autographed cards are very nice, some are even on card. Love the look of the refractor autographs. They just look regal. Next up History’s Best, Rookie Stars and Magical Moments.
All three subsets are very good and take into account moments and hot rookies of the season. Finally the stamp cards and the jersey cards:
Jersey cards I think are great, they look great with a nice flow to them. I love the stamp cards. I have no idea why, but I just think it’s cool to mix two hobbies together on one card. Nice job Topps. Overall I think they did a bang up job. With no Mayo coming out this year, it’s nice to see Topps try to grow this brand.
