Topps is turning back the clock and turning to caricature art in its latest line of wall art arriving on Topps.com today.
The Topps MLB Illustration line is reminiscent of the 1961 Topps Magic Rub-offs with more than 30 team logos and player prints available as 11-by-17 prints that are each numbered to just 99 copies.
Six players get the nod in this one with their nicknames also highlighted prominently as part of the design. They are Derek Jeter, Mike Trout, Miguel Cabrera, David Ortiz as well as Hall of Famers Gary Carter and Ryne Sandberg.
Rounding things out are a pair of past logos presented with pennants for 14 teams. You can see them all below.
