As it did with Bryce Harper awhile back, Topps got together with Francisco Lindor for a boxed set of cards that’s just hitting the market.
Launched at the company booth during the All-Star festivities in Cleveland, the set is now available online, with two different versions: one for those who want only the 50-card set and another for those who prefer an autograph or relic card for an extra $20.
Topps met with the Cleveland shortstop in spring training to get his input on the set. Lindor has an endorsement deal with Topps and wanted to highlight some of his favorite players as well as his Puerto Rican heritage.
The “Topps X Lindor set” is produced on 16pt glossy stock and includes 25 “Generational Icons” cards, 15 “Puerto Rican Heritage” cards and ten cards highlighting his fellow 2011 MLB draftees. That base set is priced at $29.99 via the Topps website where additional images are available.
The “Collector’s Edition” includes those 50 cards along with either a Lindor relic piece or an autographed card from one of several subjects–a list that includes Lindor along with Ken Griffey Jr., Derek Jeter, Mike Trout, Christian Yelich, Aaron Judge, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Pete Alonso, Fernando Tatis, Jr., Eloy Jimenez and others.
The Collector’s Edition is priced at $49.99.
Both sets will be available for 30 days. Print runs will then be revealed.
