Collectibles have long been a big part of being a sports fan and for some of us that never-ending search for that latest unique item to add to the mix is half the fun. Baseball cards have long been viewed as the typical collectible for most baseball fans, but the reality is that there’s as much available on that collectibles market as you could possibly imagine. Topps has been a staple in that baseball card market since 1952 and as they strive to continually find new and creative ways to meet the needs of their collectors.
Topps recently unveiled Archive Prints, a large collection of vintage art prints featuring digitally-remastered original Major League Baseball card artwork. For the first time ever, baseball fans can hang their favorite childhood baseball heroes, in the iconic Topps card design, on the walls of their sports room, man cave, or office. FanSided and Call to the Pen are bringing you your chance to win one.
Topps currently features more than 1,000 original Archive Prints of the biggest names in Major League Baseball from the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. Each print starts out by locating the actual physical card from the Topps archives and then painstakingly re-mastering the artwork with a team of designers. Every aspect of the print is designed to preserve the look and feel of the original card, from the printing pattern to the slightly worn edges. Prints are currently available for 23 of the 30 MLB teams.
All Archive Prints are officially licensed by Major League Baseball, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, and the Major League Alumni Marketing Association and are available exclusively at www.topps.com.
