It’s a New Era in baseball cards as Topps joins forces with cap-maker

2016-Topps-New-Era-HarperTopps and New Era Cap are teaming up to bring exclusive baseball cards to fans — and hat wearers — as part of a promotion that spotlights the company’s key players.

2016-Topps-New-Era-logoA nine-card 2016 Topps New Era baseball card set — with autographs and autographed Relics randomly inserted — will be available at LIDS stores beginning today.

“We felt that working with such a historic company like Topps on this collaboration was a perfect fit,” said Tony DeSimone, Category Director Baseball, New Era Cap. “We believe that creating special cards with on-­field caps swatches will resonate with both Topps and New Era’s tremendous fan bases.”

2016-Topps-New-Era-PoseyThe basic set will include New Era’s nine ambassadors, — a roster that includes Bryce Harper, Buster Posey, Jacob deGrom, Andrew McCutchen, Josh Donaldson, Dellin Betances, Joc Pederson, Kyle Schwarber and Marcus Stroman.

With the purchase of a cap, fans will receive a four-card pack. The Relics and autographs will be randomly inserted in packs with the Relics numbered to only 99 copies and include a piece of a player-worn New Era Cap inside them. Autographs will be found for Harper, Posey, deGrom, Pederson, Schwarber and Stroman in 2016 Topps New Era.
