With Topps’ first official minor league baseball card release set to arrive this week, the company helped usher in its MiLB cards with its announcement that it is adding eTopps to the fold as well.
The first public offerings for eTopps minor league cards are of New York Yankees prospect Jesus Montero and Pittsburgh Pirates prospect Pedro Alvarez. Each card will be limited to just 749 cards with an IPO price of $4 per card.
Topps will only issue a player on a minor league card once and will award eTopps users who own eTopps Minor League cards of players who are named the MVP of their respective league’s 2010 All-Star Game with reward points which can be used to receive other prizes. The eTopps users who own a card of a player who is called up to the majors for the first time between April and August will receive points, too.
