Topps has been hinting at a new product for weeks now through a viral marketing campaign on Twitter. I’d link to the campaign but the account was disabled and replaced with a new Twitter account shortly thereafter: https://twitter.com/Topps_Valor_FB. Frankly, I am in love with the previews. Many of you know I’m a sucker for good packaging, so the bronze-shield design is immediately a turn on. But what really gets me excited is the card design and on-card autographs. To me, this product looks like a gladiator-styled Inception. Assuming Valor doesn’t haven any chipping issues, this product could be a home-run in terms of design. Big player pictures, giant signing area, and an extremely clever way of designating parallels? Yeah…I love it all. Below is a preview gallery released by Topps. The base card of Polamalu is gorgeous in its simplicity and the packaging looks like a shield that’s been in some serious battles. Count me in for a couple of boxes when this product hits store shelves in early March of 2013.

Topps Valor saved Russell Crowe's life. FYI
