2019 Topps UFC Knockout Bring High-End Back to the Octagon


Since Topps gained the UFC trading card license a decade ago, Knockout has been one of the perennial brands. 2019 Topps UFC Knockout keeps up with its predecessor’s primary focus on autographs and memorabilia cards. There’s one of each in every pack.

Autographs and Memorabilia Cards

All 2019 Topps UFC Knockout autographs and relics are numbered to 200 or less.

Knockout Autographs are where you’ll find the majority of the signatures in the product. These have a similar design as the base. Parallels come in Blue (/50), Purple (/25), Red (/8) and Gold (1/1).

A.K.A. Ink (/25 or less) highlight the fighter’s nickname. Base versions are done in blue ink. Bronze Ink (/10) and Gold Ink (1/1) change up the signature color.

2019 Topps UFC Knockout has a few autographed memorabilia inserts as well. Knockout Autograph Relics are a base pairing. These have gear worn by fighters and have Blue (/35), Purple (/25), Red (/8) and Gold (1/1) parallels.

Autograph Jumbo Fight Mat Relics come with a large piece of fight-used canvas. The layered build of the cards is similar to Panini’s Silhouettes line. Purple (/25), Red (/8) and Gold (1/1) are the only parallels for these.

Jumbo relic pieces are included in a pair of booklet sets as well: UFC Champions Autograph Relic Book Cards (/5) and Dual Autographed Jumbo Relic Book Cards (/10).

Relics come in three themes. Knockout Relics have fighter-worn gear while Jumbo Fight Mat Relics bring more Octagon canvas. Finally, new 1-2 Combination Relics have a swatch from both. All three relic sets have 200 copies or less for the base versions. They also have Blue (/50), Purple (/25), Red (/8) and Gold (1/1) parallels.
