NFL Rookies to Celebrate Topps 50th
Since 2000, Topps has been giving collectors some of the most collectible and unique autographed
football cards in the hobby - ROOKIE PREMIERE AUTOGRAPHS.
This year, Topps added a twist to the program as each NFL rookie signed 10 cards and inscribed
"HAPPY 50th" in honor of the 50th Anniversary of Topps Football. All "HAPPY
50th" cards are signed in red pen.
These cards along with the regular blue version (limited to 50 copies each) will be seeded into
packs of 2005 Topps Football.
Also appearing in the program for the first time are ROOKIE PREMIERE QUAD AUTOGRAPHS featuring such
combos as Jason Campbell/Cadillac Williams/Ronnie Brown/Carlos Rogers.
The special cards, which are manufactured in less than 24 hours at the Rookie Premiere a.k.a. Rookie
Photo Shoot, represent a special moment for the NFL rookies as they get to see and physically hold
their first NFL trading card. Each rookie is also given additional cards to give to family members,
friends and fans (these cards do not include the 3M authentication sticker) and they even enjoy trading
the cards with their future NFL counterparts.
2005 Topps Football hits store shelves July 27th and carries a $1.59 SRP for each 10-card pack.
