Alexa Bliss and Drew McIntyre To Attend Topps DigiCon Virtual Convention

WWE Champion Drew McIntyre and Alexa Bliss will be on hand as part of this month’s Topps DigiCon virtual fan convention. Topps is known for its trading cards, but it’s moved into digital collectibles in recent years, offering collections from Marvel, Disney, sports, Star Wars, The Walking Dead, and WWE. Broadcast on Topps’ DigiCast Twitch channel, the festivities will include exclusive in-app events for collectors and previews of upcoming content.

WWE stars Alexa and Drew will be interviewed at the event on Friday, August 28. Other festivities that day include a Watch Party of two episodes of The Mandalorian, a comic-inspired release for the MLB Bunt app, and the release of the John Ratzenberger Collection for Disney Collect! Tobin Lent, VP & Global General Manager of Digital at The Topps Company, had this to say about the event:

Collector conventions are traditionally a great way for us to interact directly with our fans. But the impossibility of meeting in-person this year created an opportunity for our portfolio of apps to shine, and for us to engage digitally with our fans in this unique way for the first time. All Topps Digital Apps are featured in this unique, in-home experience and accessible to everyone globally. We can’t wait to bridge the distance between fan and creator with digital collectibles that replicate the exciting experience of visiting show-floor booths.
