Topps‘ latest creation might make you feel like it’s 1975 again … if you’re old enough to remember it.
For those who aren’t? Well, it might be something old that’s something new.
What is it? Well, according to a teaser banner on ShopTopps.com, it appears that the company is planning a line of mini baseball cards.
Back in 1975, there was a mini test issue released — cards that were 2 1/4 by 3 1/8 inches — about three-quarters the size of a standard card. (Need a checklist or OPG for the 1975s? Click here.)
What might be planned this year? We’ll have to wait and see, but it appears the product, whatever it is, may be an online exclusive much like last year’s Allen & Ginter glossy set, which was a Shop Topps-only release.
We’ll have more on this one when it becomes available from Topps.
