Earlier this month, we asked blog readers to choose their favorite Non-Sport Update cover of 2013. There were seven covers in total to choose from—our six standard covers and one variant cover. All are shown in the graphic above.
Unlike the recently concluded poll where we asked our blog readers for their favorite non-sport and entertainment card sets of 2013, where the voting was very close, this contest was a landslide. The cover that got the most votes was our Oct/Nov ’13 Mars Attacks: Invasion cover. Comments in favor of this cover included “The color is great. The image looks like it is going to pop right off the page” and “Hands down, the Mars Attacks! cover was the best one this year—probably my favorite cover over the past several years.”. The Mars Attacks: Invasion cover garnered over 50 percent of the votes. In second and third place were the Hobbit and Downton Abbey variant cover.
We also asked voters to tell us what they would like to see on our covers in 2014. Thanks a lot for your input. We’ll review those responses and see what we can do.
Finally, we told you that we’d select one person who voted and left a comment to win a Topps Artists on Demand original sketch card featuring art by Neil Camera. The winner of that card is Will Mercer from Prairieville, LA. Congratulations Will and a big thank you to Topps for the prize and to everyone who took the time to vote in our end of the year polls.
