Topps Magic to feature Jackie Robinson

This just released by Topps:

“On the heels of announcing it would recreate college themed Topps Magic Football, one of its first ever sports card releases, Topps is pleased to now announce it has added a very important subject to the product…Jackie Robinson, Running Back, UCLA.

“Robinson entered UCLA in 1939 where he would become the first athlete in school history to letter in four sports…Football, Baseball, Basketball and Track. And before breaking baseball’s color barrier, Jackie played semi-professional football for both the Honolulu Bears and the Los Angeles Bulldogs.

“Topps is randomly inserting this limited edition card into packs of 2009 Topps Magic Football, which ships June 18th. Each hobby box guarantees 3 Autographs.”

I’m not sure if I will buy a box of this new product (money contraints), but it actually looks like it will be a pretty cool product. As a college football fan, there is certainly a lot to like here. It will be interesting to see what hits eBay after this goes live in two weeks.
