On top of this set, Topps has also produced four cards of local favorites Anquan Boldin, Larry Fitzgerald, Kurt Warner, and Matt Leinart available at the show through the Super Bowl XLII Wrapper Redemption Program at the Topps Booth. You can get one of the four cards by opening three packs of any Topps/Bowman football product at the booth.

Topps also has redone the 2007 Topps base set. 2007 Topps Football Complete Set Super Bowl XLII Edition will also be available in Glendale. The set includes two extra inserts sets. The first being a Rookie insert set featuring:

-Adrian Peterson

These sets are sure to high sellers both at the show and following the show. eBay auctions for these types of cards are usually high right after the show. However, they tend to slow down in the waning months.

If you have some patience and live too far from Glendale, you may still be able to get these cards at a somewhat decent price.
