2016 Topps Marketside Baseball Brings Cards to Pizza Boxes

Share:

In case you were looking for an excuse to have a pizza night, 2016 Topps Marketside Baseball cards are available inside boxes of the Walmart pizzas.

The 50-card set features a mix of top players, rookies and even a couple of mascots. Each specially marked pizza comes with three cards and a code for the Topps BUNT app.

This is the second major food-issue release for the hobby in less than 12 months. It follows 2015-16 Upper Deck Tim Horton’s Hockey, which was a big hit in Canada and on the secondary market.

Could these mark a renaissance in oddball sets? It’s still early to say but it’s a step in the right direction. During the 1970s, ’80s and into the early part of the ’90s, cards were common premiums inside cereal boxes and with other snacks. While they’ve continued sporadically in more recent years, the number of food-issue sets has seen a noticeable decline.

2016 Topps Marketside Baseball cards are slated to be available through the end of June.

    I love food issues and like the look of this set, but I’m not sure I can stomach too many Wal-Mart pizzas in order to collect it …

    kris bryant,mike trout,arenado x 2 ross x2. actually had the breadsticks. which where very good

    wade – were the boxes marked on the outside to indicate there were baseball cards inside? I happened to stop by a Wal-Mart yesterday and while I was there I took a look at the pizzas, but none of the boxes I saw gave any indication there were cards inside. Might be willing to try some breadsticks to get the cards …

    ryan-yes they are marked with topps logo. also noticed that on the breadsticks the box itself is not sealed therefore might want to check under the product before purchasing in case anyone poached the cards.

    Food and great looking cards……just need a nice cool beverage and I’m set! Glad to see it happening.

    Agree with wade and phillies_joe. Be sure to check inside cheesy breadsticks box to make sure the loose cards pack is in the box and not missing. Very attractive cards and tasty breadsticks though. Got Bryce Harper, Robinson Cano, and Miguel Sano RC in my pack. Enjoy!
