Wander Franco doesn’t have an official Topps rookie card yet, although he’s made several appearances in minor league issues since signing with the Tampa Bay Rays. With the cutoff date for 2021 rookie cards having passed recently, the newly released Topps Now card commemorating his MLB debut has the “call up” logo rather than the “RC” stamp.
There were autographed versions, too, but they lasted barely a couple of minutes after going live on Topps’ website at midday Wednesday. You can find some of them on eBay as well.
Some recent additions to the autograph lineup at the National, which is set to open in five weeks:
WBNS-TV in Columbus, OH produced a 4 1/2 minute piece on the hobby for one of the station’s nightly newscasts, chatting with Thomas Fisher of Gemini Sports Cards and Keith Neuhart of Neuhart Sports Cards.
Ja Morant’s first playoff jersey is up for sale.
NBA Auctions is offering the City Edition #12 shirt in its current batch of listings.
Morant wore it during the Memphis Grizzlies’ 112-109 Western Conference First Round, Game 1 victory over the Utah Jazz on May 23 in Salt Lake City. He played 35 minutes and registered 26 points.
Bidding has surpassed $12,000 with the auction running through July 1.
Fanatics has launched the MLS Memorabilia Auction Marketplace, with regular auctions set to run over a two-week period.
First off the block are dozens of autographed, match-worn jerseys with a Juneteenth-inspired design including those from Santiago Sosa, Christian Roldan and Carlos Vela. Proceeds from the current auctions will go toward supporting black communities.
