A few more First Pitch cards from 2016 Topps Series 1 have begun to trickle out onto eBay in advance of the product’s official release on Wednesday and there’s another surprise among the celebs doing the ceremonial honors.
One of them is former Little League World Series star and 14-year-old Mo’ne Davis.
Davis became first girl to earn a win and to pitch a shutout in Little League World Series history during the 2014 event capturing the hearts of many. She appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated and became a household name.
Who else is among the surprises in the set?
Another in the set who has been found in packs is New York Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis, who did the honors for the Mets last June.
Also in the set? Politician Gabrielle Giffords, jockey Victor Espinoza, skateboarding legend Tony Hawk, U.S. Soccer star Abby Wambach, Walking Dead star Irone Singleton, Jackass’ Johnny Knoxville, Boston Marathon bombing survivor Rebekah Gregory, musicians Bill Withers and Steve Aoki, actor Hayley Atwell, former MLB Commissioner Bud Selig, hockey broadcasting legend Don Cherry and 108-year-old Evelyn Jones.
The most-popular card so far though has been PGA star Jordan Spieth, who has sold for more than $20 already.

very impressed with the variety of cards,especially the First Pitch cards(I really like James Taylor-even though he’s at a Red Sox game,Bill Withers and Hayley Atwell).Scanning through the sampling of cards on-line was very impressive.The Jose Bautista card was impressive(even though I believe he hit the HR against the Yankees.
