Topps Creates Cards for 2011 Under Armour All-Americans by tolentinotown

By Andrew Tolentino | Assistant Editor

While many high school students are returning for their spring semesters to show off their new iPhones, eBook readers and unfortunate sweaters, only a select few can say that they appeared on a Topps trading card over winter break.

Knowing that so many faces at the fourth annual Under Armour All-American Football Game are destined to show up in future card sets, Topps took the first step in creating pre-collegiate collectibles.

After a Friday photo shoot and an undoubtedly tight weekend of printing, Topps made quick work of the 2011 All-American roster. On Monday, Topps presented players with their respective cards and gave the future stars a chance to practice their autographs in a signing session. Although the ink has some time to dry before the autographs resurface at a later date, the prospect-minded manufacturer provided us with a sneak peek.

Furthermore, fans can still collect these high school standouts on 92 different cards. The first 5,000 attendees who show up at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. for tomorrow’s game will received three Topps cards exclusively made for this year’s All-Americans. Ideally, the parents in attendance will be civil in trading for their sons’ cards.

The 2011 Under Armour All-American Football Game airs live on ESPN Wednesday, Jan. 5 at 7 p.m. ET.
