Topps gets in on the Nicktoons MLB Action

By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

The Nicktoons MLB video game from 2K Sports arrives in stores today with a little something extra that just might create a collecting challenge for a few.

Each specially marked copy of the game comes with a pack of Topps baseball cards.

Each game includes three of nine specially produced cards featuring MLB stars in their digital form alongside a Nicktoons character.

Beckett Media’s sneak peek at the cards revealed Boston Red Sox star Adrian Gonzalez alongside Sheen Estevez, New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez alongside Aang and Los Angeles Angels pitcher Dan Haren alongside SpongeBob Squarepants.

Each card showcases the player’s strength in the game on the back and tells a bit about their adept play as well.

The game is available on the XBox 360, Wii and Nintendo DS — no word on whether the packs are collated exclusively to the platforms.
