That's what 2012 Topps Football is in August of 2013. Way, way, way WAY old news. Like, there are rookies in this set that are already working at Burger King by now. Also, the crappy giveaway site already expired.
So we're going through some pretty old stuff, but still, there's a chance to get a nice hit, plus some cool inserts. Since I'm guessing you all have seen the base cards, I won't go into too much detail, though I will highlight the inserts and nice pulls.

Yep, that is indeed a Matt Ryan Game Used Jersey card. And yes, I pulled this out of a hobby box of Topps. No gimmicked rookie, no player I've never heard of, no bullcrap redemption. Just a nice swatch of a really, really good player. And I'm content with that.
