Imagine your favorite player throwing a no-hitter, and then getting a card of that special moment the very next day. Starting April 4, baseball fans everywhere will get the opportunity to do so with a new product launch, TOPPS NOW™.
The Topps Company is proud to introduce TOPPS NOW, a Topps.com-exclusive that will depict the greatest moments and milestones from the 2016 Major League Baseball season almost as soon as they happen. The physical cards will be available the very next day to purchase through Topps.com, but for just 24 hours, and will not be available for purchase again.
Today’s first sets include last night’s Royals World Series Trophy presentation, which Mets fans could probably do without seeing.
“TOPPS NOW was inspired by input from our passionate baseball fans,” said Clay Luraschi, Topps ’Vice President of Product Development. “Magical moments will be captured on baseball cards the very next day, giving fans everywhere a chance to own a piece of history almost immediately.”
TOPPS NOW cards will depict great achievements and performances throughout the 2016 season. If a player hits four home runs in a game or has a walk-off home run, baseball fans can expect to see those cards in the TOPPS NOW set the next day. TOPPS NOW combines the magic of baseball cards with the timeliness of a special moment to get cards into the hands of baseball fans and collectors in a way that has never been done before.
TOPPS NOW adds to an already great portfolio of Topps’ Major League Baseball-exclusive cards with a new card design. In addition, at the end of each card’s selling window, Topps will announce the number of cards that will be printed for each card.
Fans can also let Topps know every night what they think should be on a TOPPS NOW card through Topps’ social media accounts utilizing the hashtag #TOPPS NOW. Follow Topps on Twitter @toppscards, Instagram @toppssports and Facebook www.facebook.com/topps.
