I came across an interesting story by amNewYork here where they got to see inside Topps headquarters.
It’s neat to see that the office currently located in Lower Manhattan in New York City is filled with everything baseball including poster-sized prints of classic cards to seats from the old Shea Stadium in their conference room.
But one part in the article piqued my interest in particular. It’s the whole idea of the Topps Now cards.
The more I looked into it, the more I liked the idea and concept of the series.
It’s a limited edition set of key moments and plays that take place throughout the sesaon. That moment is captured and created on a card, which is only available online for sale a day after the game.
Topps only prints as many as are ordered and cuts it off after 24 hours.
Some baseball cards like the Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo celebrating their World Series win with a relic of a game-used base from Game 7 of that series is currently on eBay for nearly $3,000.
Other Topps Now cards are worth less, but these key moments captured on the cards should be appealing to a lot of baseball fans.
What are your thoughts on the Topps Now series?
