New Topps TMNT Cards

I assumed it would be 'Rise' stuff, but nope, looks like it's for older collectors, at least to start with! Coming this summer. I'm kind of excited already to find out if anyone finds any of the autographed cards.

The Topps Company and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) are back together again.

As part of a newly-inked deal between Topps and Viacom Nickelodeon Consumer Products, TMNT returns to the company that first featured the famed sewer-dwelling brothers on trading cards released in 1989. The first release under the new partnership is a TMNT limited edition set featuring comic book artwork, including new art from famous illustrators from the franchise. Fans can expect Topps The Art of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trading cards to release later this summer.

Additionally, the new set will include sketch cards from a number of top tier artists. Thereís also a chance to find autographed cards from artists such as Michael Dooney, Jim Lawson, Steve Lavigne, and more.

This year marks the 35th anniversary of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, who first appeared in comics created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, published by Mirage Studios in 1984. The original Topps partnership included cards based on the original animated series and the early í90s series of live-action films.

I used to buy the sh** out of those Topps cards. I never chewed so much pink gum in my life.

Wow, you totally called it.

Any idea how much the similar Star Wars sets sold for?

Anyone know if limited edition sets are bigger or is this still going to be like the regular little card packs? If similar to those other ones.

Oh man, I went to the Toy Man Show convention last weekend and saw a **** ton of 1990 Topps cards for sale there. Pretty cool they're doing this again.

What a nice surprise! So glad they getting back in touch with the vintage Mirage artist stable too. I hope we get to see previews soon! Guess I'll be on the lookout for the card packs!

"Limited" can mean many things, hard to say how Topps will proceed. I am a baseball card collector and know that lately Topps has been selling products via their website rather than hobby distributors and the retail setting. (This way, they can keep the entire profit and cut out the middlemen).

For example, on the higher-end, the Brooklyn Collection this year was priced at $1000 per box and only 1000 boxes were made. For other, more typical, releases, they sell complete sets for $99.95 with one autograph or chase card included at random. They have also created lower end $70 boxes for some other releases with 1-2 hits per box.

For TMNT, I can see the market being at $100-150 price point.

Did you stop by the booth and say hi? My wife and I are there every show with a wall of Marvel Legends.

Thanks for the info, that's pretty much what I'd pictured when I read "limited" on it, imaging full boxed sets at a steep price.

It would be nice though if they'd also sell them in the little packs in the stores like in the old days, or some larger packs that are, say, ten or 20 dollars worth of random cards, rather than having to drop $100+ at once. Not sure I could justify paying a hundred dollars, but if there were smaller packs in stores I'd certainly grab one (or a few) now and then. That would be fun.

Oh wow, this is excellent news!

I honestly have not collected trading cards since I was in middle school BUT my love for them has rejuvenated since I work in a company that releases Horror trading cards. I have been learning about what types of sets were released back in the '70s and '80s.

I have been wanting to go back and finish collecting my original set of trading cards from the '87 cartoon in addition to purchasing full boxes of the movies sets. I mean...they are cheap enough.

With this new Topps set, I am all for purchasing something along the lines of a Factory Box or Sealed Box. I do miss the days of just going to a random grocery store and picking up a few packs of random cards...getting pissed at all the repeats I'd get in the mix, haha. However, I guess I'll be keeping an eye on this thread since I would miss out otherwise.

Getting a sketch/autographed card would be pretty sweet!
