Retail/Blaster Box – SRP $19.99
Contest Winner: SanJoseFuji
Product Checklist: 2010 Topps Magic
2010 Topps Magic Football cards have an ‘art’ look to them and is a very appealing set to collectors who enjoy nice base cards. There is one mini card per pack – with black border and pigskin parallels available. At $20 – buying a retail blaster box of 2010 Topps Magic Football is a bit of a risk if you were trying to sell your cards after the break. You’d be better off buying a Hobby Box of Magic so that you have a shot at 3 guaranteed autographs. But for the purposes of this break – it doesn’t matter what we pull, but we did get very lucky and hit an autograph of Saints Safety Malcolm Jenkins.
If you enjoy getting your cards autographed in person or through the mail (TTM) then you might want to grab a bunch of base cards because these have sort of a non-glossy finish. I wish that Topps was able to go with on-card with some of these autographs because they would look spectacular on some of these. Check these cards out – I think they would be perfect for getting autographs on.
Retail autograph odds are very tough. With only 8 packs per Blaster Box – this certainly is a nice pull no matter what player it is.
Retail Autograph Odds:
Tier 1 – Group A 1:25,000 – Group B 1:9,500 – Group C 1:5,385
Group D 1:3,015 – Group E 1:2,346
Tier 2 – Group A 1:3,202 – Group B 1:1,208 – Group C 1:845
Group D 1:140 – Group E 1:396 – Group F 1:167 – Group G 1:42
There is one mini card per pack and we did well to pull two of the black bordered parallels because those are slated odds 1:8 packs. There are also base card short prints and mini cards – but a final checklist for those have not been released. Here is a complete checklist of 2010 Topps Magic Football.
Overall this ended up being a very nice retail box – but I wouldn’t expect every blaster to be this good. I would strongly suggest buying the Hobby version of this product if you really like this set. There are two ways to hit 2010 NFL Rookies is Magic Football – the base RC’s and a ‘Rookie Stars’ insert set. Odds to his Rookie Stars inserts are 1:6 Packs. Once again we did very well to hit two of the better rookies from the 2010 Draft Class – Tim Tebow and Dez Bryant.
