These New Topps Cards Featuring ‘Rocky’ Characters Are Actually Pretty Dope — Even Thunderlips
The last time many of you thought about Topps baseball cards, your mom was probably bugging you to drag them out from the basement so she could sell your collection for $10 at her yard sale. Or you found them under your bed and swept them up with all the other dust-collecting once-valuables in your collection. Or maybe you keep them in pristine collection on your shelf -- whatever, man, I don't know your life.
But Topps is still around, and they just dropped the 10th anniversary edition set of Allen & Ginter trading cards. Allen & Ginter cards are cool because they're hand-painted in the style of old cigarette ads (Allen & Ginter was a tobacco manufacturing firm in the mid-1800s that created the first cigarette cards for trading).
This set features pop culture folks like Aaron Paul from "Breaking Bad," and a whole collection of characters from "Rocky." The timing of the release is a little poor thanks to the fact that Thunderlips is part of the collection. Thunderlips was played by Hulk Hogan, who was cut by the WWE today after racist comments from a sex tape became public. Oh well. The cards are still pretty sweet. You can check out the full checklist here.
