I recently received a box of 2014 Topps football. Although the set has been out for almost two years, this is my first hobby box. Let’s see what I got.
I am a huge Minnesota Golden Gopher football fan. My main collecting target is David Cobb; a running back for the Tenseness Titans. This past month has produced some exciting David Cobb mail days.

The mysterious Aqueous Test issue are some of the rarest cards from the early 1990’s. It is ironic one of the most mass produced cards of the early 1990’s had included some of the rarest cards of the era.
