Mascots take over in latest Topps wall art line
By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor
Baseball’s furry friends are taking over.
Twenty-five mascot cards found in packs of 2015 Topps Opening Day are getting enlarged to make their way onto collectors’ walls as the MLB Mascots collection is the latest wall art line from Topps.
Found only on Topps.com for a limited time, there are three options for collectors who want a piece of the action showing the stars found in the stands.
First, there’s a set of 5- by 7-inch cards that is limited to only 99 serial-numbered copies with all of the teams that have mascots represented. They are $34.99 per set.
Each mascot also has two 10-by-14 options for collectors to choose from — a $19.99 regular version limited to only 99 copies or a 1/1 Gold version that is $74.99.
Topps typically only has produced mascot cards in Opening Day, Chipz and in its sticker collection. These are likely the first serial-numbered MLB mascot cards ever made by the company.
