The Vladimir Guerrero card offered over the weekend is now the biggest selling TOPPS NOW card in the program’s short history.
Offered to online buyers over a 24-hour period beginning Saturday, the card commemorated the much-anticipated debut of baseball’s top prospect. According to Topps, 19,396 copies were sold, breaking the old record by more than 2,000 cards. The previous mark was set when Topps offered a card of Shohei Ohtani after he signed with the Angels in the winter of 2018.
The dated card shows Guerrero recording his first career hit in the bottom of the ninth inning last Friday night against Oakland.
Six autographed versions were also offered and sold out within minutes, despite price tags ranging from $249.99 for the parallel numbered to 99 to $3,499 for a 1/1.
While the window for ordering the card passed Sunday afternoon, you can find them on eBay by clicking here.
Topps also announced that Guerrero is the player featured on the autographed Mystery Redemption “Player A” card that’s being randomly distributed among several early season products including Series 1, Heritage, Inception, Gypsy Queen, Big League and Tier One.
Collectors who pull one of the redemption cards from a pack now know it’ll be Guerrero’s signed card they’ll be getting.
Earlier this month, Eloy Jimenez was named as Mystery Player B. You can check the eBay market for those here.
