By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor
It’s time to take a trip to Cooperstown.
With Sunday’s Baseball Hall of Fame inductions, Topps‘ latest offering of wall art is one that puts the spotlight on 20 of the best players in the history of the game — it’s the Metal Cut Collection. It’s also a first for the new series of online art offerings in that these will come not only printed on metal but also diecut using the style of 1972 Topps — just without the borders.
Each 17-by-12 piece is limited to just 49 serial-numbered copies with a price tag of $79.99 via Topps.com. Unlike the standard prints, which are on card stock or thicker paper, these also come with a wall mount to help make display of the item a bit easier.
While this series of 20 player pieces commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Hall of Fame, it’s just the latest in a series of offerings from the company which began a push in the wall art category earlier this year with new offerings nearly every week.
You can see all of the prints in this series below and find more information on the series by clicking here.
Look for an in-depth story about these prints — and other card-like offerings — in the next issue of Beckett Sports Card Monthly.
