When Does 2019 Topps National Baseball Card Day Take Place?

2019 Topps National Baseball Card Day

Saturday, August 10 is the day it goes down. The promotion focuses on a few different aspects, all centering around raising the profile of baseball cards. The big one is free cards being handed out at participating card shops (Canadian shops). The set is exclusive to the promotion with a checklist featuring a top player from every MLB team.

Besides the main set, autographs are also randomly inserts the packs.

In addition to the free packs, there are a couple of additional cards for those making a qualifying purchase at participating shops. On August 10, it’s a Bryce Harper card. A week later, on August 17, a new Vladimir Guerrero Jr. card expands the 2019 National Baseball Card Day checklist. The idea here is to get collectors to return to participating shops.

With the campaign, many shop owners make events out of it with additional promotions and parties in their stores.

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.

Acknowledging that not all areas have card shops, Topps has expanded National Baseball Card Day to Walmart and Target locations. At Walmart, there are special hanger boxes of 2019 Bowman Platinum Baseball that include exclusive Topps Gallery Preview cards. These have a NBCD stamp.

For Target, there’s a coupon where collectors can use a coupon to get a free pack of 2019 Topps Series 2 for spending $10 or more on Topps products between August 10-18.

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

Topps officials made the announcement at the Southern Hobby Retail Expo in Nashville, a gathering of shop owners last fall.

    The Toronto based store list is outdated. Three of the five stores I called had no idea about the promotion. Please update with the official list from the Topps site
