New UFC Gallery Includes Never-Before-Seen Lyoto Machida, Royce Gracie Gems by Tracy Hackler

MachidaAuto

Last week Beckett Media had the distinct privilege of busting the first two boxes of 2009 Topps UFC — one was a world premiere Box Busters video, the other led to a gawk-worthy gallery of the product’s first live images.

This week, in honor of the product finally going live (it should start hitting shops and setting internet auctions ablaze on Wednesday), we thought we’d showcase some more awe-inspiring imagery from Topps’ second UFC-licensed product, including many images that are being seen here for the first time.

Of particular import in the following gallery are the industry’s first certified autograph of undefeated light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida (a karate-influenced striker who’s yet to lose even one round in the UFC), a classic Bloodlines tribute to UFC legend and Hall of Famer Royce Gracie, and some of the most compelling knockout photography ever captured on a trading card.
