That formula has not changed for the 2015 version of Inception. A box will consist of one pack, with seven cards to a pack. Topps promises two autographs or auto relic cards, and one relic card.
The base set design puts an action shot of the player against a soft background of several colors, with hues of magenta and blue prevalent in the one base card I saw of DeSean Jackson. The Redskins’ wide receiver was also one of the two red parallels I pulled from the pack I opened. The other was of Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney. The other parallel I found was a magenta card of Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles.
The parallels for signature cards mirror the base card set, the exception being there are no printing plate autographs. Some collectors might pull an Inception Silver Signings card, which will fall one in every 12 packs. This card combines silver ink and a black design. There are gold parallels, too.
Topps Inception is a middle- to high-end product and should sell in the $80 to $95 range. It offers some nice hits, with plenty of chances to pick up rookie autographs. As the set coincides with the early part of football training camp, it is an attractive first look at those players who could make an impact this season in the NFL.
