I’m old enough to remember when baseball cards were just dudes standing there and posing with dirty words written on the knobs of their bats. Okay, that was just Billy Ripken, but the card game as a whole Sure has changed.
No more gum, no more matte finish, these things are glossy and slick and have all kinds of special editions. They also have a quick production turnaround, as we see from the limited-edition card Topps has made of Anthony Rizzo and Kyle Schwarber from yesterday’s Anchorman trip.
Fans and collectors can purchase the card here for $9.99, but they’re only available through 11 a.m. CT on Saturday.
