    Exclamation Axl Rose to sign first certified autographs for Topps

    Topps announced the headliner in its forthcoming 2013 Topps Archives Heavy Metal Autographs set on Tuesday, and itís none other than Guns Ní Roses frontman Axl Rose.

    It will be Roseís first fully licensed trading card appearance and his first certified autograph as he has nothing listed in the database. The singer was an icon of the late-1980s and early 1990s as his bandís 1987 debut album, Appetite for Destruction, has sold more than 35 million copies worldwide while five other records sold more than 65 million copies total.

    The 10-card autograph set will be one of three additional insert sets to the previously announced 2013 Topps Archives release. There will be a standard version of the cards as well as one that will be limited to 25 copies and printed on metal.

    Along with the arrival of Archives, Topps is planning a two-week hobby shop promotion where a limited number of 25-cent packs will be made available. These will include a parallel card only found in these packs. In addition, a Fatherís Day promo will allow collectors to bring in a 1980s card and receive a free cello pack of 2013 Topps Series 2. Those packs will include parallels only found as part of this promotion along with randomly inserted autographs.

    Topps also will be doing a redemption program tied to Archives where one redemption card will be found in every hobby box good for a throwback single-card pack with a 1950s-1980s card inside.

    Here is the preliminary checklist for the Heavy Metal set as provided by Topps:

    Heavy Metal Autographs
    Sebastian Bach, Skid Row
    Tommy Lee, Motley Crue
    Kip Winger, Winger
    Reb Beach, Winger
    Lita Ford
    Bobbie Brown from Warrantís Cherry Pie video
    Stephen Pearcy, Ratt
    Scott Ian, Anthrax
    Dee Snider, Twisted Sister
    Axl Rose, Guns Ní Roses

    I'll believe them when I see them live. I'm willing to bet these will be redemptions that never get filled. It's hard enough getting athletes to sign cards in time let alone one of the moodiest, most egotistical celebrities out there.

    Yeah with Axl's reputation this seems pretty hard to pull off.

    I am an avid Atlanta Braves Auto collector. I am in the process of updating all my autos to a spreadsheet and organizing them. I am always looking for Atlanta Braves RCs Autos and also nice veteran autos.

    Seems kinda dumb for Topps to make the effort to get Axl to sign these (if he does) instead of using that time, energy, and money to get BASEBALL players to sign for a BASEBALL product
