The Greatest Card Ever Produced?
Discuss this news:
On October 11th, Topps will release one of the most stunning baseball card products ever produced – Topps
Not only will Topps Sterling include a "player-touched" Autographed Relic or Relic (all cards
feature 3 or more relic pieces) numbered to 10 or less, but it will feature what may turn out to be one of
the most coveted trading cards in the modern hobby era.
Several months ago, Topps announced it had signed an exclusive deal with the legendary slugger Josh Gibson's
estate. Topps also announced that it had purchased one of two known Josh Gibson game model bats. Since, Gibson
Bat Relic cards have been issued in Topps Triple Threads and will also be highlighted in Topps Allen & Ginter.
But, Topps tucked away the most treasured part of the bat, so it could create Gibson's ultimate trading card.
And now for the first time, Topps offers a taste of its upcoming product with a sneak peek at the Topps Sterling
Josh Gibson Bat Barrel 1/1 Relic Card.
More details to come later this week on the all-new Topps Sterling Baseball.
