Last week, John from California found a Nolan Ryan reprint in some packs of 2017 Topps Series 1 baseball cards that he’d opened, and he offered to send it my way.
Ryan is the only Met featured in a 10-card “Rediscover Topps” promo set. The fronts are reprints of classic Topps cards of some of the game’s biggest stars of the past and present, ranging from Jackie Robinson to Mike Trout. The backs talk about Topps’ traditional baseball cards available at retail and hobby shops, Topps Bunt digital baseball cards and Topps Now cards available for 24 hours only at Topps.com.
MAB Celebrity Services is holding its “Kings of Speed” autograph show at the Fairfield Crowne Plaza in Fairfield, New Jersey today from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Major League Baseball’s All-Time Stolen Base King, Rickey Henderson, headlines a slate of guests that also includes Hall of Famers Lou Brock, Ozzie Smith and Paul Molitor.
Henderson is the only former Mets player scheduled to attend the show. While I still would like his autograph for my collection, $109 is more than I can afford to spend now.
