With Feb. 1 looming next week as the release date for Topps Baseball Series 1, the company has been providing a running countdown of surprises found in the set. The latest news surrounds fold cards – as in made of real gold.
Topps has produced 16 very special cards that are made of 14K solid gold and are exclusive to hobby boxes. These “Solid Golden Greats” (inserted as redemptions) include only the best of the best to ever step on the diamond and features legends such as Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron.
In addition, Topps teamed up with Beckett Grading Services (BGS) to present these cards in an exclusive Topps slab. Each BGS protected card includes the insert name, player name and 1-of-1 sequential numbering.
