Topps offers limited product for UFC Fan Expo
By Susan Lulgjuraj | Contributing Editor
UFC fans are getting a treat this weekend. Not only is there another match with UFC 148, but the UFC Fan Expo is taking place at the same time.
The Fan Expo will feature more than 50 UFC and Strikeforce fighters including Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell, Tito Oritz and others at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on Friday and Saturday (roster is subject to change).
Of course, Topps will also be there promoting some of its MMA product. For those that will be able to attend, Topps will be at booth 731.
Topps is only the company producing official UFC trading cards. At the Expo, it will be selling 2012 UFC Moment of Truth – Independence Edition, a limited edition product.
Each mini-box has 15 cards with an Independence Edition foil stamp, and one autograph will be in every box. Topps will sell the product for $20. The autograph checklist includes Urijah Faber, Carlos Condit, Chael Sonnen and more.
“The auto’s are (a) special unique design just for this product,” an official from Topps wrote on its Twitter account. “(It) includes special independence auto paralled #’d to ten.”
Even if you can’t make it out to Las Vegas this weekend for the UFC Fan Expo, Topps will sell a limited quantity on its site at ShopTopps.com on Saturday.
But they expect the product to sell out quickly at $20 a box.
