Topps Rolls Out Trading Cards Previewing Mayweather-McGregor Bout
Topps today unveiled a limited edition trading card set in the buildup to Saturday's Mayweather-McGregor fight. The cards are exclusively available on Topps.com. Each set contains 20 cards showcasing press conferences, training sessions and other moments leading up to the bout. At $24.99 each, the sets are available for one week, and Topps will print only the number of sets purchased. Topps also will separately issue match preview cards later this week, showcasing weigh-in images.
Meanwhile, Varsity Brands division BSN Sports this weekend will debut its "Conor McGregor Punch & Crunch Experience," a vending machine featuring McGregor's voice challenging consumers to test the power of their punch to yield a full-size Syntha Crisp bar. The machines will be outside Las Vegas' Tropicana Casino (THE DAILY).
