Turkey Red is making a comeback.
Topps‘ online-only offerings at ShopTopps.com will continue in 2013, the company announced Tuesday as Turkey Red will be the latest brand to be sold online direct to the public.
This follows in the footsteps of the Topps Mini and Heritage High Number releases that were only sold online last year and a glossy version of the Allen & Ginter set the previous year.
“[It] is scheduled to go live in mid-February,” said Topps representative Mike Jaspersen, who promised to have more details on the product soon.
Turkey Red was a regular product for Topps from 2005 to 2007 before becoming simply an insert set in the company’s 2009 and 2010 flagship releases. They were based on cards of the same name from the early 1900s.
