MLB’s All-Stars get their due in latest Topps wall art line — and so does every Series 1 player
By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor
Somebody got a 1/1 Derek Jeter oversized baseball card straight from Topps for $99.
Probably right place, right time as it was part of Topps’ latest wall art line that highlights the rosters of this year’s Midsummer Classic, which is Tuesday night at Target Field in Minneapolis. Each player is captured on the memorable 1958 Topps All-Star subset design.
Every All-Star appears on a 10-by-14 oversized card print limited to just 99 serial-numbered copies with each available for $34.99.
Rarer Diamond versions of the prints with green backgrounds with diamonds on them are limited to just 10 numbered copies apiece and sell for $49.99.
The rarest cards — Starter — were made for the starters and were 1/1s.

In other wall art news, Topps revealed on Monday its latest wall art line — 2014 Topps Series 1. There are 262 player cards from Series 1 getting the wall treatment with the cheapest edition being a $14.99 10.5-by-14 card with 17.25-by-21.35 for $29.99 and 23-by-31 for $39.99.
The smallest size is printed on UV-coated glossy card stock, while the largest is printed on resin-coated matt-finish paper. Unlike the All-Star offerings, these are not a limited, numbered edition.
