Jumbo 2015 Topps Chrome Carlos Correa autograph arrives as online exclusive
By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor
When Carlos Correa signed an autograph deal with Topps, he wasn’t the first to do so. Good or bad, autograph exclusives have been around for a long time now.
However, what made Correa’s deal different — at least for Topps — is that it branched beyond just cards and into memorabilia as well. The Astros rookie is the first player to strike such a deal with the card maker.
The deal came too late to get Correa’s signature in packs of 2015 Topps Chrome Baseball. However, leveraging the autograph deal, an over-sized version of his rookie card is now available on Topps’ website.
The 2015 Topps Chrome Jumbo Autograph Carlos Correa card measures 8 x 10. It’s printed on stock similar to the regular 2015 Topps Chrome Baseball set. It also comes with a thumbs up from MLB-trained authenticators and a tamper-proof hologram.
The cost? $124.99.
That’s not cheap, but it is less than what his autograph in the recently released 2015 Topps Heritage High Number Baseball is going for.
Topps also has a pair of Carlos Correa autographed photos available. The 8 x 10s carry a $99.99 price tag. The website lists bats, balls and jerseys as coming soon.
As for the regular-sized 2015 Topps Chrome Baseball Carlos Correa autographs, we may see one at some point as Topps showed a picture of the shortstop holding a signed Superfractor on their Instagram page.
