Topps Vault adds signed memorabilia to lineup
By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor
For more than a decade, the Topps Vault program has helped get behind-the-scenes collectibles from the making of our collectibles into collectors’ hands.
Now, the lineup of Vault items on Topps.com contains more than just photo transparencies and player contracts as the company has added autographed memorabilia into the mix.
A selection of more than 500 autographed photos, baseballs and bats have been added to the site’s inventory — a selection that includes the inexpensive and somewhat obscure to legends such as Sandy Koufax and Hank Aaron from the past as well as stars of today like Miguel Cabrera, Yu Darvish, Madison Bumgarner and Yasiel Puig.
In the last two years, Topps has put an added focus on online-only offerings of trading cards and wall art with releases noting highlight moments such as the All-Star Game getting near-immediate treatment via offerings that are on a made-to-order and limited-time basis.
