2018 Topps US Winter Olympic and Paralympic Team Hopefuls Trading CardsBrand: Topps Olympics
Tap into the excitement of the PyeongChang Olympics with 2018 Topps US Winter Olympic and Paralympic Team Hopefuls! Exclusively covering some of America's best, the hobby-only boxes include one autograph and two relics.
Last seen for the 2016 Summer Games, collectors have a new wave of athletes to obtain, albeit in a much colder setting, as well as a special insert for Olympic skiing legend Lindsey Vonn.
2018 Topps US Winter Olympic Team Base / Inserts
Because the 2018 Topps US Winter Olympic checklist is set in advance, the release applies to many of those who ultimately make the squad, and some of those who aspire to but come up short. Featuring both the Olympic and Paralympic Team hopefuls, the base set has Bronze parallels at one per pack, plus USA Flag (#'d), Gold (#/25), and Limited Edition (1/1) versions.
Honoring previous medalists, the Podium Image Variation cards replace the base photo with an image of their crowning moment. Other inserts include Did You Know?, which takes a deeper look at the athletes while adding full-bleed images, and For Pride and Country. Paying tribute to an Olympic icon, Lindsey Vonn Career Milestones looks back at her career with cards that fall 1:12 packs.
There are also USA Flag (#'d) and Limited Edition (1/1) parallels for each insert except for Did You Know.
2018 Topps US Winter Olympic Team Autographs / Relics
Promising one autograph and two relics per box, 2018 Topps US Winter Olympic Team is simple but effective. The primary Autograph set mirrors the base set in design and with the low-numbered USA Flag (#'d), Gold (#/25), and Limited Edition (1/1) versions.
Looking to the past, the Olympic Champions Autograph (#'d) insert is a case hit with a design sure to evoke some patriotism. These also have Gold (#/25) and Limited Edition (1/1) parallels. In addition, Vonn is singled out with rare Lindsey Vonn Career Milestones Autographs.
Supplying the final two hits in 2018 Topps US Winter Olympic and Paralympic Team Hopefuls, collectors can find standard memorabilia cards and commemorative relics. The Team USA Memorabilia Pieces set also comes in Silver (#'d), Gold (#/25) and Limited Edition (1/1), plus a manufactured Jumbo Wreath parallel.
Fully on the manufactured side, numbered USOC Insignia Commemorative Relic cards apply the official logo. These add Silver (#'d), USA Flag (#/50) and Gold (#/25) options. Finally, the Achievement Medallion (#/99) set celebrates past performances.
