Kris Bryant gets his own Topps wall art line
By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor
Kris Bryant is kind of a big deal — even bigger as wall art.
The Chicago Cubs rookie made his big-league debut last week and on Monday Topps released a series of five wall art prints showcasing the third baseman’s 2014 Bowman card design as an oversized piece of acrylic.
A 1/1 Gold edition priced at $249.99 already has sold out — same for his Green version limited to 10 copies at $149.99 — but three others remain. There’s a Purple limited to 25 at $119.99, a Blue version limited to 99 copies at $84.99 and a standard (red banner) version that’s limited to 149 copies for $69,99.
Available only on Topps.com, these pieces are 10- by 14-inch reproductions of his card printed on 1/4-inch thick plastic that includes a wall mount on the back. Each piece is serial-numbered.
The No. 2 overall pick in the 2013 MLB Draft, Bryant has gone 3-for-10 with a double and an RBI in his first 10 games this season.
