The iconic card maker is scheduled to debut the collection on QVC April 29 at 1 p.m. (EST) during the special Royal Affair broadcast.

It's not Topps' first foray into current events. In 2008, Topps published an inaugural edition of cards chronicling the story of President Barack Obama. Over the years, the firm has offered cards based on the Operation Desert Storm military conflict, man’s first landing on the Moon in 1969 and the life of President John F. Kennedy.

“This tribute to the Royal Wedding of William and Kate carries on the company’s proud tradition of documenting significant and newsworthy moments in time,” said Topps CEO Ryan O’Hara. “The card set should resonate with consumers who are fascinated by the Royal Family and looking for a unique keepsake of this once-in-a-lifetime historic event.”
