Topps releases remaining NSCC sets online
By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor
If you missed the show of all shows, Topps has two show-only releases that you can still get — at least for a limited time.
Three limited sets of 5-by-7 baseball cards — one featuring notable Chicago icons and the other featuring game’s biggest young stars on High Tek stock — were only found at the National Sports Collectors Convention but now are available now on Topps.com. Two other sets showcase young stars of the NFL.
The Tek sets were sold at the show for $49.99 with star rookies Kris Bryant or Addison Russell leading the way for baseball. There were 1/1 Gold cards randomly inserted into the sets at the show for both the baseball and football releases and every set includes one card that is limited to only 50 copies.
Set A’s checklist includes:
Chase: Mike Trout, Frank Thomas, Mariano Rivera, Nolan Ryan
Set B’s checklist includes:
Chase: Clayton Kershaw, Bryce Harper, Ken Griffey Jr., Cal Ripken Jr.
The standard-stock Cubs set is $24.99 and features highlights from Topps releases this year. They include:
