Topps Magic Quick Opinion or Brohm, Iglesias and Morris

I have to say I really like this years Topps Magic football set, it's a nice retro design and I would guess it's supposed to be the football equivalent of Heritage Baseball.

The base cards are nice looking and out of the box and I got most of the major rookies and a few nice mini rookies including a Dez Bryant black mini which I really like. The only major drawback is the autographs. I got 3 from the most common and most worthless group (the odds are 1:21 packs or something similar, but I beat the odds and got 3 from this group).

The first autograph I got was Brian Brohm. Brohm is awful, I think he might be the only player to turn the ball over on 2 (or was it 3?) consecutive plays to end his career as I can't imagine him getting picked up by another team.

Second autograph was of Jauquin Iglesias who appears to be a Minnesota Viking now, I had to check Wikipedia because I didn't think I had heard his name mentioned at all this year and I honestly didn't think he was still in the league.

Third auto was of Sammy Morris. Not the first auto of his I've ever pulled but I didn't think I'd still be pulling cards of his in 2010 let alone auto's. At least he played this year.

So all in all I like the set a lot but I think I'll wait for the box price to drop before I buy another box and make a run at the set. I'm sure the box price will given the rough autographs that the average buyer is likely to pull.


  1. Glad to hear from you again. It has been awhile...

  2. It has been, thanks for still reading. Let me know if you want to trade again I have some Sox cards for you I think

  3. I've actually seen a lot of these breaks, and it seems like there are some nice auto hits to be had. I think you just got unlucky in this case. When they give you 3 per box, it'd be nice to at least pull one good one, and that seems to be the norm, based on what I've seen on the boards.
