Topps is partnering with Alex Pereira to promote its trading card buyback event.

Topps and participating hobby shops will buy back 2024 Topps Chrome Alex Pereira cards in exchange for store credit. To advertise the event, the trading card manufacturer put together a promo featuring ‘Poatan’ as a seemingly not-so-friendly clerk at a local hobby shop.

If you want to participate in the buyback program, the process is fairly simple:

  • Buy 2024 Topps Chrome UFC and collect Alex Pereira cards.
  • Bring those Alex Pereira cards to your local participating hobby shop.
  • Exchange the cards for store credit.

Topps has a list of participating partners on its website right here. If you don’t have a location in your area, Topps is partnering with three retailers to service mail-in UFC Main Event cards for the buyback event.

However, fight fans have become obsessed with the idea of a potential superfight between ‘Poatan’ and Jon Jones after the undisputed UFC heavyweight world champion suggested that a scrap between the two would be worth putting off retirement.
