As athletes prepare for the 2014 Winter Olympics, Topps is giving fans a look at those who are striving for gold in its newest product, 2014 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Team & Hopefuls. There will be 24 packs in each box with eight cards per pack.

There will be three hits in every box including one U.S. Olympic Team Autograph and two U.S. Olympic Team Relic or Commemorative Relic cards.

The autograph checklist will feature up to 50 names including figure skater Evan Lysacek and skiers Bode Miller and Lindsey Vonn. Topps will also include on-card autographs of some of the greatest members of Team USA in the Winter Olympics such as Bonnie Blair, Scott Hamilton and Mike Eruzione. The autographs will also come in four parallel versions.

There are three different commemorative cards: Team Patch Cards, 2014 Patch Cards and Team Logo Pins.

2014 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Team & Hopefuls is scheduled to come out in early November.

I'm so happy they are doing this for the 2014 games! The last one was a fun set to chase

I was wondering when the 2012 stuff came out if Topps will do the same with the 2014 Winter Olympics. I don't know if I will go head over heals for the Winter ones, but I may bust some to see what I can get. I am still working on the Gold Medal Parallel set from 2012 as well as the relic set. I guess I will see when it releases if I will have the hunger to bust it like a mad man like last year.
