Topps 2011 Under Armour All-American Card Gallery: Red Team

By Andrew Tolentino | Assistant Editor

As mentioned in a previous post, Topps took a preemptive step in creating cards for the pre-collegiate stars who played in the 2011 Under Armour All-American football game on Jan. 5. The manufacturer distributed these collectibles to the first 5,000 attendees — unsigned, three per person —  at the event in St. Petersbug, Fla.

Although all  92 Under Armour All-American cards were signed by each featured player, Topps is saving those signatures for a drafty day. Fortunately though, the future-newcomer-commemorating card maker was kind enough to provide us with images of all 92 autographs.

The Red Team won the game 24-22 in thrilling fashion, so let’s start with those victorious faces:

Prince William, Kate Middleton will appear in baseball card set

By Chris Olds | Editor

The Queen will now include some royalty.

Topps unveiled its plans for a new baseball card set styled in the fashion of an 1887 release some time ago, but on Friday the longest-running manufacturer of baseball cards announced a little something extra in packs of the forthcoming 2011 Gypsy Queen baseball cards.

Prince William and Kate Middleton — two members of Britain’s Royal Family — will appear on a card.

Building on the product’s “jewels” theme — which includes bonus cards of various gypsys (yeah, we’re mystified, too) —  a  “Royal Jewels” card can also be found in packs.

No word on a card of Enrico Palazzo, though.
