It doesn’t stop there. This set includes autograph cards from 85 Athletes Unlimited athletes (each hobby box delivers 2 autograph cards), as well as cards that contain a piece of embedded memorabilia, known as relic cards. And for the collectors out there, every base card has limited versions, called parallels. These include Gold Foilboard Parallels, limited to 1 in every 24 packs, and the unique Foilfractor Parallel, which is numbered 1/1.

What’s even more exciting is that this is the first set to feature athletes from all four sports in one combined set, marking a significant milestone for women’s sports. Topps has been a partner of Athletes Unlimited since its inception in 2020, creating individual sets for each sport. But this set takes it to the next level by showcasing the talents of all the athletes across all four sports.

“Topps has been an incredible partner and supporter of Athletes Unlimited from the very
beginning, showcasing the greatest female athletes in the world and providing our fans
with an opportunity to own a piece of history,”

said Jon Patricof, CEO and Co-Founder of Athletes Unlimited.

“This new set featuring all four of our sports together marks an
important milestone in our shared journey, and we are thrilled to see major retailers
feature Athletes Unlimited on their shelves.”
