Topps and the Wayans Bros. Team for Charitable Cause

The Dozens Logo Starting Sunday, June 12, The Topps Vault ( will be offering fans and collectors autographed copies of Topps all-new hilarious collectible card game - "The Dozens" presented by the Wayans Brothers. Each of the 100 cards up for auction is autographed by both Marlon and Shawn Wayans with all proceeds from the auctions benefiting the Way Out Foundation.

The Way Out Foundation, established in January 2005, is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization founded by Keenen, Marlon and Shawn Wayans. Its mission is to help children in underserved communities and schools realize their potential through internships and scholarships for those seeking careers in the entertainment industry. The Foundation seeks to provide a springboard for disadvantaged young people to be mentored and taught the skills needed to pursue their dreams, helping them enter and achieve success in the various facets of the film and television industries.

Comedic brothers, Marlon, Shawn and Keenen Ivory Wayans, like many kids growing up in urban America, played a street version of "The Dozens" in their youth. In the newest incarnation of the classic game, the Wayans deliver an arsenal of "Yo Mama" jokes (also known as "snaps"), complete with hysterical illustrations.

The game features 150 different joke cards such as "Yo mama's so dumb, she sold her car for gas money!" and "Yo mama's so skinny, the animals at the zoo feed her!" with power rankings from 1 to 12. Challengers can compete by trying to outrank each other on their own or by having an audience decide which insults are the funniest. "The Dozens" is available in foil packs, each containing 5 joke cards, one sticker, game rules and a piece of bubble gum.
