Eight More Days Until 2013 Topps!!

It is that time of the year when Topps is about to release its annual flagship set, 2013 Topps. The official release date is only eight days away and I already have been stalking the Wal-Mart and Target stores in my area in hopes to see this much anticipated product. Yesterday, Topps provided a peek into what to expect as long time card collector and political commentator, Keith Olbermann, was given the honors of opening the ceremonial first box of 2013 Topps. Keith shared a few pictures on his Twitter account as did Topps of how awesome these cards look. I have compiled two days’ worth of their tweets into a “post full of collectible eye candy” (thanks, Underdog!).

If this doesn’t get your mouth watering and ready to rip, I don’t know what will. Here’s an explosion of amazing designs, superb photography, and pure awesomeness:
