2014 Topps Valor football cards. Purchased a pack of 18 cards at the local Wal-Mart. They are a little pricey as they ran $5.99. The base set is only 200 cards which allow for a good pull of stars. I received Sammy Watkins, DeMarco Murray, J.J. Watts, Matthew Stafford, Matt Forte, Patrick Willis, and RG III to name a few. Rookies were also a big part of the pack with Kelvin Benjamin and Watkins among the six rookie cards. I also received Marshall Faulk from days gone by. I love the retro cards and that is no different here. The insert I pulled was a Storm Johnson (RC) GLORY card numbered 185/199.
The fronts have an action shot of the player set in front of a large team logo. The rest of the front of the card is colored in team colors/dark tone with a smoky bottom half of the card. The Valor logo is at the top left, RC is at the top right of rookie cards, and the players name, position and team logo appear at the bottom of the card. I like this though it isn't the traditional photo you normally see. Here you only see the players photo with quite a bit of coloring and the team logo. It just looks sharp to me. I also like the big team logo and the coloring. These fronts do it for me visually.
