Limited Edition New Era Bryce Harper Cap Includes Exclusive Topps Cards


2016 Topps New Era Bryce Harper Numbered

By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

Some baseball cap collectors will find a surprise when they pick up a limited edition New Era Bryce Harper 2015 NL MVP commemorative cap. The hats include one of three exclusive Topps Bryce Harper cards.

Harper, the latest New Era brand ambassador, helped design the special edition cap that includes some of his early accomplishments since making his MLB debut in 2012.

The Major x New Era Harper MVP Tribute Cap package was done in extreme small numbers. It came with an initial price of $79.99. The pre-sale package, was sold at the MAJOR Showroom in Washington on Saturday, April 23. Just 72 were released at the time. It included a ticket to the Nationals’ April 28 game against the Philadelphia Phillies to pick up their hat as well as one of the three exclusive Topps cards.  

All three of the cards are serial-numbered to 34 copies each. For checklist purposes, the cards are numbers NE-BH1, NE-BH2 and NE-BH3.

Although the cap’s $80 price tag may seem steep to some, a couple were listed on eBay with starting prices of more than $400 each.

In addition to the MAJOR version, there’s a snapback cap with the same custom design. It’s been made in larger numbers and comes with a smaller price tag (but that doesn’t mean it’s cheap). The one that came with the limited edition package is a fitted cap.

    $400+? A tad greedy of the sellers.
    For $400 you can get a nice bowman platinum autograph prospect and have enough left over to buy the non-numbered hat.

      I suspect the sellers are targeting the hat collectors versus the card collectors. Different markets.

    Still greedy.
    Consider that the hat came with a ticket to another.
    Now if happen to want to watch the game, getting to
    go means you could sell the hat at cost and still be
    ahead of the game.
    Adding a bit of a markup to reflect your time is one thing. This is just stupid.

    Hi guys. My daughter and I waited outside the shop for 13 hours in rain on and off to be sure we got at least one hat. We bought two hats each. You couldn’t pick up the hats the day you bought them, you had to go to the have a few days later. For what it’s worth, the seats were terrible. I had checked in on Facebook at the shop and someone pm’d me and asked to buy one of the packages. I sold one for $260. I’m holding on you the others. I’m sorry if you think that’s greedy, but 13 hours, overnight, in DC… Well, I think the guy got a good deal.
