With the ever-growing popularity of entertainment-related collectibles infiltrating the sports memorabilia industry, it’s no surprise card manufacturers have tried to capitalize on pop culture by offering entertainment-based card sets.
Topps is re-joining the fray later this year with the release of Topps American Pie trading cards. No, these aren’t based solely on the sophomoric film series of the same name, but rather the set will celebrate the greatest moments and personalities in America’s pop culture history.
The set chronicles the people, events, fads and fashions that have captured America’s imagination for more than six decades. The set will feature autographs, relic cards, cut signatures, autograph relics, patches, stamps and coins.
Among the autographs featured in the set are Bob Costas, Mickey Rooney, Henry Winkler, Carmen Electra, Tom Arnold and dozens more. This will include the Topps’ 60th anniversary celebration cards featuring Charlie Sheen autographs.
Autographs, relic cards and cut signatures will be found three per hobby box. This product is also scheduled to ship the week of Dec. 12.
