Houston Astros fans — and maybe a few others — will be happy.
Topps announced on Tuesday that hot-hitting Astros rookie George Springer will have autographs in 13 forthcoming products from the company beginning with Bowman Inception arriving on June 25.
Last night, the 6-foot-3, 205-pound outfielder out of UConn went 4-for-4 with three RBI and two doubles. upping his season totals to eight homers and a .268 average after a slow start with the American League West cellar-dwelling squad.
Springer is no stranger to cardboard, already appearing on 377 cards in the Beckett.com database valued at more than $5,400. He made his debut back in 2010 as a member of the USA Baseball squad on cards — including autos and Relics — from Topps. Springer already has 151 certified autographs in prospects sets.
The products he will be found in include:
Allen & Ginter
Topps Five Star
Topps High Tek
