Topps has added a new element to its on-demand Topps NOW trading card platform. The company has announced plans for a Topps NOW Moment of the Week in which collectors can “vote” for their favorite baseball moment from a group of proposed cards.
Votes will equate to purchase commitments, with the winning moment/card selected after a seven day period beginning each Monday. Those who selected the winning moment (card that winds up with the most purchases) will have it shipped to them (with a gold “Winner” foil stamp on the front) and their credit card will then be charged. Those who chose the non-winning card will not be charged and the cards will not be produced.
The first week’s winner shouldn’t be hard to pick. Among the choices is a card featuring Shohei Ohtani’s historic week, one that conjured up images of another famous two-way player, Babe Ruth. Both are pictured on the back of the card. Other ‘Moment of the Week’ candidates include Bryce Harper, Giancarlo Stanton, Joe Panik and the Houston Astros, who received their 2017 World Series rings at their home opener.
