More news hot from the Topps news wire:
“Topps is pleased to announce that it has signed Oakland Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes to an autograph trading card deal.
Cespedes will make his first appearance on an Autographed Rookie Card in 2012 in the highly-anticipated Bowman Baseball…but with a twist.
Randomly inserted into packs are three limited “Bowman Lucky Redemptions”. Cespedes is now designated as Lucky Redemption # 1. Cespedes will have an unsigned Rookie Card in the product as well.
In addition, the Cuban phenom is slated to sign autographs in Tier One, Allen & Ginter, Bowman Platinum, Topps Finest, Topps Chrome and more.
Cespedes, a rare five-tool player, starred for the silver medal winning Cuban National Team in the 2009 World Baseball Classic and was named to the All-WBC team.”
Another great move by Topps to secure another rookie that will be popular with collectors this year joining the signing of Yu Darvish.
