Topps recently lost a pioneer in former executive Sy Berger, who helped create the famed 1952 Topps set.
Now, collectors can get him on a new card as part of the 1951 Sy Berger Tribute Collection, an offering in Topps’ wall art series.
Only available on Topps.com, these 10- by 14-inch posters are limited to only 99 serial-numbered copies and showcase players from the past and present. They are $29.99 apiece.
A set of 5-by-7 smaller pieces is available for $49.99 and it includes every player in two different offerings — a set of Blue backs for retired stars and a set of Red backs for active players.
Among the past greats are Ernie Banks, Tom Seaver, Johnny Bench and Nolan Ryan, while modern-day inclusions are Mike Trout, Bryce Harper and the reigning American League Rookie of the Year, Jose Abreu.
