Topps launched two more online baseball card concepts on Tuesday.
After taking votes last week for the Top 10 MLB Moments of the Year, the company unveiled the first of ten top moments that will be made into cards. The cards feature a new Topps NOW Moment Of The Year logo and a picture from the day the moment happened.
The votes were tabulated Monday and the first card announced Tuesday as #10 was Mike Trout becoming the first player in Angels history with 30 hits and 30 walks in a month. It received 567 votes from collectors who participated.
The cards will be 2 ½ x 3 ½” and printed on 16pt glossy stock with a “rainbow laminated card back security feature” according to Topps. Priced at $9.99 (less in quantity), they’ll come with free shipping. Print runs will be based on the number of cards ordered for each player.
Cards 9 through 1 will be revealed one per day. You can find them here.
The second online product is a holiday-oriented ‘Advent Calendar’ set with one card scheduled to be released every business day for the next 20 days leading up to Christmas.
Each 2 ½ x 3 ½” card will be printed on glossy stock, priced at $7.99 with free shipping and will be available during a 24-hour window. Again, the cost will be less if purchased in quantity.
Trout was revealed Tuesday afternoon as card #1 in the 20-card set.
The cards will have a holiday-themed back. They’re being sold here.
