Topps created two base cards as well as a variety of relic and autographed relic cards for Derek Jeter’s number retirement. It’s likely the sales revenue will exceed $100,000 when the 24-hour offer expires on Tuesday.
The expensive stuff sold early.
The three autograph base relics were gone in a hurry when Topps put them up on the NOW website Monday afternoon. Those numbered to 25 ($999.99) 10 ($1,999) and the 1/1 version priced at $4,999 were sold within minutes of the 2 PM Eastern time launch.
Of the standard base relics numbered to 99,49,25,10 and 1, only the card numbered to 25 ($299.99) was still available for purchase 40 minutes later but within the hour, it too, was a sellout.
Base cards will be available until 2 PM Eastern tomorrow and are priced at $9.99 (less in quantity) with the production run limited to the number of cards purchased.
Among the other NOW cards released Monday was a base Mike Trout commemorating Mike Trout becoming the youngest player in MLB history to reach 150 home runs and 150 stolen bases. He’s still just 25.
