As the sport moves forward in 2011, many fans are seeking to capture the collectables that defined the Octagon Cage era. Top fighters from the UFC are now defining the sport through prime time events with innovative venues, and collectables from trading cards to event gear are fast becoming hot collector's items. There are a wide variety of Octagon collectables to consider, but the primary types of memorabilia start with trading cards and event items:

·    Topps UFC Octagon Collectables

Topps put out a series of cards, hobby hits and special collector’s items, including autographed cards and relic items. As a result, you can find actual event relics with genuine autographs in the sets. This provides a great way to remember the top events of fighters such as Chuck Lidell (prominently featured in the 2010 Topps sets), as well as classical UFC fighters from the recent era.

Impressively, the Topps hobby sets feature multiple autograph cards, relics and inserts in each box. The authentic signature cards are limited to 1 (Diamond), 8 (Ruby) or 88 (Onyx) issues, making them a rare collectable to be enjoyed by all. Top modern fighters including Antonio Noguiera, Matt Hughes and Cain Velasquez are all featured in the sets. Impressively, there are also 12 different types of actual event mats and 16 unique signed event photos in the sets. As a result, the Topps UFC Octagon collector’s sets make it easy to remember the glory days of UFC Octagon fighting.

For those who truly want to remember the cage, the Ultimate Gear inserts from Topps feature actual event relics including pieces of gloves and event gear that are signed by the fighters. Owning a piece of the fighting mat and actual in event gear is just a Topps set away.

·    UFC Octagon Event Memorabilia

One of the best ways to get close to the cage is to look for UFC VIP Memorabilia packages from the events themselves. These VIP kits were distributed to fans, and include a variety of rare Octagon collectables from the UFC.  By collecting these sets you can find many individual items that are nearly impossible to find in isolation, helping to build a complete set to remember the full Octagon days.

In one particular set, you can find limited edition Jakks UFC fighter figures, including champions such as George St. Pierre. Additionally, these sets feature signed photos from fighters such as Clay Guida, complete DVD of UFC Octagon knockouts, actual event guides and posters, official event T-shirts and a variety of collectable sets including hats, bands and jewelry. As authentic UFC issued collectables these are as close to the cage as you can get.
