Nomar Mazara, Trevor Story, Blake Snell Get Their First MLB Rookie Cards in 2016 Topps Stadium Club
By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor
The 2016 Topps Stadium Club Baseball checklist has no shortage of rookie cards. 34 to be exact. Of those three are bound to get a little added attention as they’re the first pack-inserted MLB rookie cards for a trio of standouts: Nomar Mazara, Trevor Story and Blake Snell.
All three do have cards already dating back a few years. These include prospect cards and autographs from Topps and Panini. Story also has a rookie card in 2016 Panini Flawless Baseball, albeit one without any major league marks or logos. It’s also limited to a scant 20 copies so not many are going to have the chance to own one.
And then there’s 2016 Topps Now, the online-exclusive on-demand release. Both Mazara and Story have multiple cards in the ever-evolving set.
For all three, 2016 Topps Stadium Club represents the first time they’ve had full MLB rookie cards in packs. Story and Mazara had memorable starts to the season early in April. Snell’s debut came towards the end of the month.
