Are you ready for racing suit zipper relics?
Topps will push out a racing product during the holiday season, one that should attract interest beyond North America. 2020 Topps Dynasty Formula 1 is scheduled for release on December 16, with a single autographed card per box. F1’s 2020 season has been condensed by the COVID-19 pandemic but is currently underway with at least 13 races on the schedule. It will arrive about six weeks after 2020 Dynasty baseball.
The product is being produced as part of a new deal between Topps and Formula 1.
