When Topps‘ latest Doctor Who set arrives in May, it will include one of the biggest autograph lineups in the hobby for a single-franchise non-sports release and a number of first-time signers.
There will be 75 signers in all for 2016 Topps Doctor Who Timeless, including six past Doctors and stars who have made their marks elsewhere such as Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz). In all, there will be 40 first-time signers, according to the company.
“We are very proud of Timeless,” said brand manager Mark Von Ohlen. “We dedicated a lot of time and effort to make the kind of trading card set that Whovians everywhere will love. We have a huge list of autograph signers and a variety of costume pieces to collect. This is the set that any Doctor Who fan out there will want to collect.”
Topps has a pair of upcoming non-sports sets in the works — Star Wars: The Force Awakens Series 2 and Doctor Who Timeless — and the company has been busy teasing upcoming signers for both releases.
So far, there have been five names announced for both sets. For the Star Wars set, there will be former Alias and Heroes star Greg Grunberg, BB-8 operator Brian Herring, Harriet Walter, Jessica Henwick and David Acord.
