The doors opened this morning at the John B. Hynes Convention Center in Boston for the two-day 2010 UFC Fan Expo, held this year in conjunction with Saturday night’s UFC 118 event. The Expo — a sensory-overload combination of, among other things, collectibles, apparel, autograph signing sessions and martial arts demonstrations — is nirvana for diehard MMA fans.
But one of the highlights for the card-minded enthusiasts among the throngs attending no doubt will be booth #2015. That’s where Topps officials are providing the first opportunity to view — and purchase — 2010 Topps UFC, the company’s hotly anticipated next product available everywhere else Sept. 15.
Topps’ Clay Luraschi and Jeremy Fullerton were nice enough to smuggle some first-look photos our way. Enjoy the images . . . and if you’re in the Boston area over the next two days and plan on attending the Expo, by all means give us a full show report.
