If you’re a fan of 1955 Topps baseball cards, then the company’s latest creation is for you.
It’s Topps‘ latest series of wall art prints — and this time they showcase active players on the memorable horizontal design.
Sixty-two players are available on 10-by-14 prints that are printed on 16-point retro-style card stock. Those cost $24.99 and can only be found on Topps.com.
For card collectors, there’s an extra twist, though.
A serial-numbered smaller version of each print — these printed as 5-by-7s — will be available in wax packs for 12 teams. Those will cost $24.99 for five players. The teams available are the Yankees, Athletics, Cardinals, Twins, Dodgers, Mets, Tigers, Cubs, Pirates, Red Sox, Orioles and Phillies.
Yankees rookie Masahiro Tanaka is among the New York set, while two players are available without team sets and only as prints — Mike Trout and Bryce Harper.
They will begin shipping on June 16.
