Topps‘ 60th anniversary ring (the quick image here does it no justice) features 50 gems and will only be owned by a select few.
How rare will they be? Topps’ order has not been finalized — one could speculate perhaps 60 rings? Maybe more, maybe less …
What’s it worth? We’ll let the market take care of that when they arrive.
But what we do know is this:
— One Beckett Baseball reader will own the ring seen here. (Details to come in upcoming issues.)
— Ten randomly selected hobby shops will receive a ring as part of their Diamond Anniversary Kit to promote the product in stores.
— The remainder of the rings will be given away as part of the Diamond Anniversary program’s online codes found beginning in 2011 Topps Series 1 — the company’s anniversary product — that arrives soon. Code cards are found one in every four packs.
