(3) Case break of 2012 Topps Five Star FB w/ THE GREATEST PACK EVER!

So I saw 3 cases of the new 2012 Topps Five Star Football opened today.  First thing I noticed was that there wasn’t any damage on any of these cards.  Nice job Topps.  I’m calling this break The Good, The Bad & The Ugly (Ugly in a very good way).  The first case was good.  The second case was bad.  And the third case was just ugly (again ugly in a very good way).  Here’s how it broke down:

I would say this was a good to very good case.  Three great veteran autographs plus a Griffin Auto.  Very nice.  The auto patch RCs were so-so.  Osweiler is not bad, but Graham and Allen are not very good.  Not a bad hit on the Foles Auto either.  If every case was like this, no one would complain.  Now on to the bad case.

Jumbo Jersey- Nick Toon Jumbo Patch /25 3-color

 

As you can see, this case wasn’t nearly as good.  The veteran autographs went from three all-time great hall of famers to three decent (but not great) autographs.  The RC Auto Patches were about the same as the first case.  The Russell Wilson wasn’t bad, but it’s just a base and it’s a redemption.  The booklets were nothing special either.  Blackmon and Floyd were high picks, but WR don’t have a ton of value.  This case was definitely a let down after the first one.  On to the third case.

Just WOW!  Can’t believe there was a Luck Auto /25 and a Griffin Auto Booklet Patch /5 plus a Young Auto Patch /75 in the same pack.  Absolutely shocked.  Needless to say, the third case more than made up for the second one.  I think this product should do quite well.  Thanks for stopping by and looking.
