2020 Topps Seattle Children’s Heroes Brings a Loaded Autograph Lineup for a Good Cause

Share:

2020 Topps Seattle Children’s Heroes is a set of trading cards for a good cause. The box set, which is only at Bartell Drugs locations in Washington State, features a variety of athletes and entertainers who have roots in Seattle. Proceeds go to the Seattle Children’s Hospital.

The 25-card base set includes several local sports heroes including Ken Griffey Jr., Russell Wilson, Gary Payton, Lenny Wilkins and Jewell Loyd. Other local celebrities include singers Ciara and Macklemore as well as actor Joel McHale. Even Sir Mix-a-Lot has a spot on the eclectic checklist.

The design is inspired by 1984 Topps Baseball. It’s not licensed by any of the sports leagues so there aren’t any league logos.

Each sealed set also comes with one autograph. Every person on the checklist has signatures, including Griffey and Wilson. For some of the entertainers like Ciara and McHale, it’s their first certified autograph cards. All signatures come on-card.

Sets originally cost $25.

    After all of the absurd products that Topps has put out this year (Baller Chrome, Aoki, etc.), it’s nice to see a product like this that supports a children’s hospital. Any idea if Topps plans to put out a similar product for other cities around the US in the near future?

    Great cause, but the greed-driven hoarding of sets by flippers hoping to pull a big autograph and turn a profit is in poor taste. I am not surprised though. I see one seller in WA with at least 11 sets up for sale now, at varying prices (with the autograph that came with it). I suspect they had more and some sold already. The charity wins, but the collector loses.

    I’d be curious to know how a set like this comes to be and how subjects are chosen. I’m sure a big part of it comes down to who is willing to participate and lend their name. It’s great that some huge names have signed on. I have to laugh at a few selections though…Charlie Furbush? There was not a few other local favorites with a bit more name recognition and accomplishments that were available and/or willing to participate? Where are the old school M’s, Sonics & Hawks (Slick Watts, Alvin Davis, Jim Zorn, Bruce Bochte, Steve Largent, Downtown Freddie Brown, Curt Warner, etc). Aaron Sele would have been a cool addition with local ties both as a youth and as a professional. Maybe he was not asked or was not willing…Then again, I suspect most of these people are more currently well known (Although I’ll admit I don’t know who some of them are.).

    Hi Curt, these are people who invested/volunteered AT Children’s hospital on a regular basis. As you know, Russ spends nearly every Tuesday there. Just being a Seattle area sports star doesn’t get you on a card. Hope that clears it up.

    Hey Ryan,

    Do you know if Topps will release print runs for the autographed cards? My brother and I put a set together, but it wasn’t easy. I can tell you for certain there are several SP’s!

      Nicely done. As a general rule, things that aren’t numbered don’t get announced print runs now.

    Hi there!
