Willie Mays is back with Topps.
Topps has signed a multi-year agreement with Willie Mays to bring his autographs to his fans and card collectors around the world. This mean you will be finding Willie Mays autographs in products soon, starting with 2012 Topps Series I baseball. He is also already slotted for Tribute, seen below, and Gypsy Queen baseball.
I, for one, am excited to see The Say Hey Kid return to signing baseball cards. I know his autograph has always been hard to get, so expect collectors who decide to sell the earlier cards to get a good return on these autographs. Topps will also be making relics from his former uniforms as well.
Expect this blog to start covering more big industry news like this from all the top sports card companies. It’s been long overdue and I want to keep everyone up to date on as much information as I can.
