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:

Will your eyes see the twinkle in 2011 Topps Baseball? (Updated)

By Chris Olds | Editor

The first boxes of 2011 Topps Baseball have been ripped and the first reports of oddball findings are coming in, too.

The most notable previously unannounced finds are cards that have the twinkle or sparkle of a diamond digitally placed into the photograph of the card.

Topps reps are officially mum on the issue for now — expect an announcement soon — but cards confirmed to have this variation (so far) include: Roy Halladay, Derek Jeter, Ichiro Suzuki, Chipper Jones, Aroldis Chapman, Chris Carpenter, Mariano Rivera, Miguel Cabrera, Brent Morel, Alex Rios, Kyle Drabek, Jared Weaver, Justin Upton, Victor Martinez, Brian Matusz, Ubaldo Jimenez, Roy Oswalt, Jose Bautista, Justin Morneau, Brett Anderson, Desmond Jennings, Tommy Hunter and Chase Utley.

Given some of the names on the list, it might be an SP set that parallels all 330 cards in the set. However, they won’t be found easily. Brent Williams, an Arkansas-based dealer who specializes in breaking cases in bulk, has seen the cards fall one per case.

He pulled six through his first six cases and that held true for another breaker he is in contact with.

“I know of 22 other cases that each had 21 total,” he said.

The cards are also found in retail packs.

We’ll have more in 2011 Topps here soon — a Box Busters preview gallery will come later and our video will come soon (our Busters boxes are stuck somewhere in a snow drift.
