Topps readies World Series commemorative card set
By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor
Whichever team wins, Topps has it covered.
The lone fully licensed manufacturer of MLB trading cards unveiled its plans for a World Series commemorative team set on Wednesday, just hours before the first pitch of Game 1 between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers.
Whether it’s the Rangers or the Cardinals emerging victorious, Topps will release a 27-card set featuring the champions. There will be 20 player cards, one manager card and two highlight cards apiece from the League Division and Championship Series as well as two World Series highlight cards.
The sets will carry a $9.99 suggested retail price and will be in stores by Nov. 23.
