Topps announced on Monday that the late Ted Kennedy will have an eTopps card as part of the company’s Allen & Ginter Moments set found on the online trading card platform.
A maximum of 999 cards will be made featuring the former Massachusetts Senator who died last week. He is shown throwing out the first pitch at a past Boston Red Sox game, wearing a Sox warmup jacket on the card.
The cards will be allocated after Sept. 7. Collectors who receive one of the cards styled after the 1880s tobacco cards of the same name (printed on holographic stock, though) in their eTopps account will be charged $7.50.
