Your Feedback - We want it!

With the cards finally hitting the stores this week I am sure some if not all of you have opened up some of the packs and started your collection. We have been very happy to hear some great reviews so far on other sites and collectors.

I was hoping to hear some feedback from you, our readers. Please post the good and the bad as both will help us create new cards for our upcoming releases.

UFC Round 1 trading cards will be on store shelves and available for purchase on February 25th.

We delayed the product a bit to ensure that we got as many top level fighters signatures in the product.

Thanks for your continued interest. I can't wait to hear what you think in just a few short weeks.

Answers and updates

The sampling event at UFC 94 was a huge success. Many fans leaving the Grand Garden Arena went home with the first Topps produced UFC cards. The reaction from fans as well as UFC executives when they saw them was impressive and many people were eager to know where they can get more.

UFC Round 1 will be available at three distinct locations.
1 - Trading Card Hobby Shops:
2 - All UFC live events
3 - UFC Webstore

UFC Round 1 has a suggested retail price of $5 per pack. There are 8 cards per pack and 16 packs per box. Each box is guaranteed to have 3 autograph cards and 3 memorabilia cards featuring a piece of fighter-worn gear or octagon mat.

As the release date gets closer the excitement in the Topps and UFC offices grows by leaps and bounds.

I can't wait to get this product on the shelves and into your hands!

Thanks for your questions and comments. Keep them coming.
