“The Game” and “The Billion-dollar Princess” are signing for Topps — and a donation from the company also will help benefit Connor’s Cure, a charity that helps pediatric cancer research.
Topps revealed on Thursday that Triple H and Stephanie McMahon autographs will be on the way in future WWE products and that a Topps Now card featuring them next week also will raise money for the charity.
“We are excited to work with WWE to benefit Connor’s Cure in a unique way through our exclusive trading card offerings,” said Topps WWE Brand Manager Colin Walton. “WWE fans will get the opportunity to learn more about Connor’s Cure and make a direct impact while owning a collectible for years to come.”
McMahon, who is WWE’s Chief Brand Officer as well as an on-air legend, and Triple H (Paul Levesque), who is the company’s Executive VIP for Talent, Live Events and Creative after an iconic in-ring career, started Connor’s Cure in honor of 8-year-old WWE fan Connor Michalek, who battled medulloblastoma.
The Topps Now card featuring McMahon and Triple H will launch on Monday along with cards for SummerSlam.
McMahon has not appeared on a certified autograph card since her only signing (and only card) for Fleer in 2001. Meanwhile Triple H has only nine certified autograph cards — all very low volume — except for a Fleer cards from 2002. He hasn’t had a Topps autograph since 2012 — and even those were immensely rare pulls.
