In April we provided the excited first glimpses of 2010 Topps UFC, the company’s fourth stand-alone UFC trading card product due out later this summer. Back then, we told you that the set would release in late August featuring the industry’s first fight-worn fist tape cards, MMA’s first book cards and dual-signed cards featuring autographs from Dana White and some of the UFC’s all-time greats.
The good news: All of those things remain true about the release now, just weeks from launch.
The better news: Topps officials confirmed today that the product also will include on-card autographs from the fighters and coaches (Chuck Liddell, Tito Ortiz) from Spike TV’s “The Ultimate Fighter 11” reality show, won by Court McGee.
In light of Saturday’s heavily anticipated UFC 117 showdown between middleweight champion Anderson Silva and the torrentially trash-talking — and highly entertaining — Chael Sonnen, we figured now was as good a time as any to provide another must-see gallery from a product — and a brand — that seems to improve every time it enters the Octagon.
