Product Rewind: 2015 Topps Strata Football Cards – With the 2016 NFL regular season well underway, several sophomore year players from the 2015 NFL Draft Class are starting to make an impact for their teams. While players like Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota, Todd Gurley and Amari Cooper, were the top rookies at their positions last year, other players from that draft class are starting to make moves on the field and in the hobby.
One of the more under-appreciated and under-valued football card sets from last years is 2015 Topps Strata Football. This newly re-configured, hobby exclusive release delivers (1) Clear Cut Autograph Patch Rookie Card and (1) Strata Autograph Card in Every Box! – BOTH featuring ON-CARD Signatures! In addition, Each Case will yield (1) Strata Signature Patch Card and (1) Strata Signature Card!
Besides the aforementioned rookies, 2015 Topps Strata Football includes rookie cards of other notable players including running backs, Jeremy Langford (Bears), Melvin Gordon (Chargers) and David Johnson (Cardinals) as well as wide receivers Kevin White (Bears), Sammie Coates (Steelers) and Tevin Coleman (Falcons). Several of these players, recently, had key performances on the field.
With a current retail selling price of between $45-50 per hobby box, there is plenty of opportunity for rip an flippers as well as collectors looking for investment grade rookies. With two autographs in every box, one being an ON-CARD Rookie Patch card, the price of $22-$25 per auto leaves plenty of upside based on current secondary market pricing on eBay.
At the rate at which rookies from the 2015 NFL Draft Class are impacting the game, it is only a matter of time before both box and single card prices start to escalate. Right now, 2015 Topps Strata Football may be one of the best kept secrets in the hobby but don’t expect that to last forever.
For group breakers in particular, this product provides an opportunity to make a good return on investment while providing collectors with nothing but hits. You can checkout a team hits checklist below.
