Well, actually they’re called trading cards, bubble gum cards, sports cards. But we just call ‘em baseball cards. Because baseball does it best and did it first. And Topps is the main brand. Just like Erin Andrews is the main sideline reporter. And she’s getting a Topps trading card in the Allen & Ginter’s World Champions set. As is supermodel Kate Upton
… The 350-card base set, which will arrive in July, will feature a myriad of baseball stars from today and yesterday…Also included, are autographed cards of famous baseball players (Stan Musial, Albert Pujols, Willie Mays) and numerous non-baseball celebs including Upton along with other notable celebrities including Bobby Knight, Erin Andrews and Arnold Palmer.
So what will be the value of an Erin Andrews rookie card in a Beckett Baseball Card Monthly? Don’t put your EA cards in a shoebox or in between the spokes of your bike, you need to keep it in mint condition. So get your hard plastic covers ready.
