Then you will be pissed. Beckett has an article about the autos and said that lesnar did not get his autos back in time. He may be inlucded as a redemption.. but he wasn't on there break out of group A-J autos.

I can live with redemptions, kinda, at least they didn't totally remove him from the product.

looking at the article again.. I don't think he has an auto in the set:

Here’s a rundown of who signed cards in the Topps UFC set that arrives this week.

Group A (1:118): Randy Couture, Anderson Silva, Quinton Jackson, Georges St-Pierre

Group B (1:188): BJ Penn, Forrest Griffin

Group C (1:72): Bruce Buffer, Herb Dean, Royce Gracie, Rachelle Leah

Group D (1:15): Kenny Florian, Heath Herring, Michael Bisping, Brandon Vera, Chris Leben, Diego Sanchez, Roger Huerta, Gabriel Gonzaga, Cheick Kongo, Karo Parysian, Clay Guida, Manny Gamburyan, Ed Herman, Thiago Silva, Rich Clementi

Group E (1:70): Matt Serra, Thiago Alves, Sean Sherk

Group F (1:94): Paul Kelly, Mac Danzig

Group G (1:20): CD Dollaway, Ben Saunders, Matt Riddle, Josh Burkman, Sam Stout, Wilson Gouveia, Tim Credeur

Brock Lesnar did not sign cards in time for inclusion in the set.

I see a lot of names missing.

Chuck Liddel
Matt Hughes
Frank Mir
Brock Lesnar
Big Nog
Dan Henderson
Dana White didn't even make it in time!

There is a lot more missing.

Part of the cost of producing a product is how much they have to pay for the autos and memorabilia from the athletes. I can't believe having Sean Sherk sign 200 stickers would cost as much as even a Fred Davis. So I think the $100 box price is speculators buying in quanitity and initial availablity being reduced. (I chose Sherk because we went to the same high school and I picked Davis because, well, he sucks).

Considering the athletes aren't getting paid a dime for being in the new UFC video game, I can't imagine they are getting paid to be in this product. If they are, it isn't much.

There was 50 autos in the original "Base autograph list." There is now 37 autographs. There is more than Brock missing on the cut. Let us know the response, so far this is looking pretty fudged.

I can understand a few autos not making into a product that states "List subject to change" but between this and Mayo the people at Topps are screwing up big time and irritating their paying customers like me.

well 37 of 50 isnt bad. at least there is still some big names there.


since the list subject to change seems to becoming a routine. i was thinking of no longer pre ordering anything. but then again if i dont i may end up paying for it in the end. so its a lose lose situation.

I don't know I just think the Topps cards are too basic looking and the autos/relics are not that appealing compared to the Ring Kings.

Why focus on two guys and then only have one autograph it? They could have had two guys, but put the guy who signed it in color and the other in black and white for a little contrast.

I think the autos wouldve been better as just portrait shots or something.
