Default First look: 2014 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Team & Hopefuls

First look: 2014 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Team & Hopefuls (w/ preliminary checklist)

07.18



By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor
Topps is getting in the Olympic spirit.
As athletes prepare for the 2014 Winter Olympics, Topps is giving fans a look at those who are striving for gold in its newest product, 2014 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Team & Hopefuls. There will be 24 packs in each box with eight cards per pack.
There will be three hits in every box including one U.S. Olympic Team Autograph and two U.S. Olympic Team Relic or Commemorative Relic cards.
The autograph checklist will feature up to 50 names including figure skater Evan Lysacek and skiers Bode Miller and Lindsey Vonn. Topps will also include on-card autographs of some of the greatest members of Team USA in the Winter Olympics such as Bonnie Blair, Scott Hamilton and Mike Eruzione. The autographs will also come in four parallel versions.

There are three different commemorative cards: Team Patch Cards, 2014 Patch Cards and Team Logo Pins.
Inserts will include Games of The XXII Winter Olympiad, Venues of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games and Olympic Heritage.
The base set will contain 100 athletes with three parallel versions.
2014 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Team & Hopefuls is scheduled to come out in early November.

I'm in the group break here. Hopefully there's enough interest to fill it eventually. Tempted to get my own case, but haven't decided yet. If they would add Apollo Ohno and/or Shaun White I'd probably go for it. As it is, the checklist doesn't excite me too much. Only a couple big names so far.

I don' think this will do as well as last year's summer. I may pick up some blasters later.

I agree that with White it would be huge, and how did they not get Ohno in this product? I still think it will be OK, perhaps a bit of a sleeper but probably not approaching the Phelps-mania witnessed with the 2012 Summer release.

Very quiet for this coming out tomorrow. I decided to not order any of this. Did everyone else reach the same decision?

Lindsey Vonn just crashed. I think she is the key card of the set.

I pre-ordered a case a few months back, so we will see how it is. May do a box by box summary in the box break section.
