2019 Topps National Baseball Card Day

Saturday, August 10 is the day it goes down. Beyond that, specifics weren’t announced for 2019 National Baseball Card Day, but the three previous years have focused on a few different aspects, all centering around raising the profile of baseball cards. The big one is free cards being handed out at card shops. These have been exclusive sets primarily covering baseball’s biggest stars.

With the campaign, shop owners can make events out of it.

Topps has also made similar team-focused sets for stadium giveaways. These happen in the days and weeks leading up to National Baseball Card Day.

MLB and the players also get in on the promotional efforts, particularly on social media and at the ballpark by busting packs.

Full details are likely a ways off but stay tuned. Keep an eye out for updates.
