Topps is bringing back Strata back for a sophomore campaign.
The card company debuted the layered product last season with one of the most hyped rookie classes. It hasn’t changed much in 2013 Topps Strata football, and left in what collectors enjoyed about the product.
Each box guarantees two autographs, one relic card and a rookie die-cut. Case hits include one Strata Signature Relic, three Clear-Cut Autographed Patch cards and three Rookie Patch cards.

Yakupov. Galchenyuk. Conacher.
Just a couple of more months until hockey collectors will get to see this season’s top rookies on NHL-licensed product. Upper Deck is going all out with the Double Rookie Class and previewed 2013-14 Artifacts, a September release, which seems full of Rookie Card goodness.

The Red, White and Blue are back in packs — and for the first time, it’s an entire product issued in pack form just for USA Baseball.
But that’s not all that Panini America‘s 2013 USA Baseball Champions has to offer if collectors are patriotically inclined.
Besides the inclusion of the latest young players to take the field for America, there are several notable USA Baseball alumni who have certified autographs for the first time in years.

The first Axl Rose Heavy Metal Autograph redemption card from 2013 Topps Archives has hit the auction block on eBay a day before the product’s official release, and it’s already picking up steam after just a few hours online.
How fast? You could say it’s been gaining bids faster than Rose singing “Garden of Eden” on Use Your Illusion I.
There will be a few questions about this card in the coming days and weeks, but none are more important than how high will it go?

When 2013 Topps Archives arrives tomorrow, it will include all sorts of throwback designs and nods to the past that make it, well, Archives as well as the touches from last year that made it reigning Beckett Baseball Product of the Year.
But it will also include something new — which is something old.
It also will include nods to the original chase cards in the hobby — errors and variations.
