First look: 2014 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Team & Hopefuls (w/ preliminary checklist)

By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor

Topps is getting in the Olympic spirit.

As athletes prepare for the 2014 Winter Olympics, Topps is giving fans a look at those who are striving for gold in its newest product, 2014 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Team & Hopefuls. There will be 24 packs in each box with eight cards per pack.

There will be three hits in every box including one U.S. Olympic Team Autograph and two U.S. Olympic Team Relic or Commemorative Relic cards.

The autograph checklist will feature up to 50 names including figure skater Evan Lysacek and skiers Bode Miller and Lindsey Vonn. Topps will also include on-card autographs of some of the greatest members of Team USA in the Winter Olympics such as Bonnie Blair, Scott Hamilton and Mike Eruzione. The autographs will also come in four parallel versions.

There are three different commemorative cards: Team Patch Cards, 2014 Patch Cards and Team Logo Pins.

Inserts will include Games of The XXII Winter Olympiad, Venues of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games and Olympic Heritage.

The base set will contain 100 athletes with three parallel versions.

2014 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Team & Hopefuls is scheduled to come out in early November.

Looking forward to the checklist of the on card autos.
Going to be hard to top the summer one though given Phelps and company.
And, it would be nice if it had different autos than the upper deck champions on ice too.

Looking forward to getting a set of this & all the base insert sets, too.

Not as many big names as summer version, but I’ll bet that Lindsey Vonn auto sells for $200+ easily.
