2013 Topps Inception Football, the brand's third gridiron outing, continues to focus on rookies, autographs and bold designs. Every single-pack box comes with a pair of autographs or autographed relic cards as well as a jumbo memorabilia card.
The base checklist includes 100 veterans and are printed on thick 72 pt. card stock. Every box has two of the following parallels: Green (one per box), Purple (#/99), Yellow (#/75), Red (#/50), Framed Printing Plates and blue Inception (1/1) cards.
2013 Topps Inception Football Rookie Autographs feature on-card signatures from key members of the 2013 NFL Draft class. Numbered as part of the main set, they have the same parallel levels and quantities as the base cards. Confirmed signers include Matt Barkley, Mike Glennon, Eddie Lacy and Montee Ball. Elemental Autographs are also hard-signed. The cards incorporate a weather theme. Silver Signings (#/50) cards feature a horizontal design with, you guessed it, a silver autograph. Parallels include Gold (#/25), Gold Nickname (#/10) and Gold Inscriptions (1/1). Other signature-focused inserts include Dual Rookie Autographs (#/25) and Quad Rookie Autograph book cards (1/1).
