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.

They really need to stop reusing the same pictures. This is a decent idea, but that Machado picture has been used 4 or 5 other times, at least. It’s the same picture on his 2013 Heritage card, his 2013 Archives card, and his 2014 Archives 71 Hockey insert. And there’s probably a few others I’m missing. The Cespedes is the same photo on his Heritage card. I sort of get it with older players, but today’s players should have different photos.

Hey Topps, there is a team down in Atlanta called the Braves! You should look them up!

My son shares the same sentiment, only he would like to direct Topps’ attention to the great state of Ohio, where there is a team in Cincinnati.
