First look: Topps 2014 Doctor Who Trading Cards

By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor

The doctor is in.

Topps is releasing Doctor Who Trading Cards by the end of the year.

Each box will have 24 packs with eight cards in each pack, and will include two hits in every box.

Doctor Who celebrated its 50th anniversary last year. The new set will include 200 base cards with four subsets: characters, aliens, villains and gadgets. There are three parallels of each with Blue (numbered to 199), Red (numbered to 99) and Gold (numbered to 50).

The set will also include 100 inserts with five subsets:
– Memorable Moments (1 in 2 packs): moments throughout the 50 years
– Companions (1:4)
– The Doctor is In (1:6): featuring all 12 doctors
– TARDIS Travel (1:8)
– Stitches in Time (1:12): Fan favorite episodes featuring more than one doctor at the same time

The hits will include autographs, relics, sketch cards, printing plates and Medallion Relics.

The autographs will feature doctors and companies, including cut cards where available. There will also be dual autographs as well.

Relic cards will feature props, wardrobes and manufactured alien relics.

The Doctor Who sell will come out Dec. 10.

I am 100% in on this all the way. I’ll most likely be buying a case. I’ve been a Doctor Who fan for 35 years. I just hope Topps doesn’t ruin it.

Damn it. Why sticker autos?

There have been a number of great series put out over the years, all hand signed.
There is simply no excuse for this in most cases.
Put a little effort into and do it right or I’ll just go buying the old ones instead.
I’ve managed to get a hand signed one of Matt Smith from 258 West Authentic, so he does
indeed sign on card.

Susan – If the card companies brought in everybody to sign the actual card,or flew somewhere to meet the stars, how much more (estimate) would the box prices be.

Just a pity it’s a North America release & the rest of us get stuffed! Expect silly ebay prices for individual prop, costume & auto cards & lot’s of secondary market price gouging. No thanks ~ This is one card set I won’t be collecting.
