Topps introduces Topps #TBT baseball cards — new stars on old designs every Thursday

Topps-TBT-HarperThe best players of today — released every week — on the best designs of yesteryear.

That’s the basic idea for 2016 Topps #TBT, a new ongoing baseball card set from Topps that will be released online each Thursday.

This first week features the 1955 Bowman design and includes the reigning National League MVP Bryce Harper on the first card in the series.

Topps-TBT-Harper-backThe print runs each week will be revealed after the sales window closes. The first six-card pack will cost $19.99 for one with a discounted price of $49.99 for three. There will be free shipping with Smartpost.

This first wave also includes Mike Trout, Clayton Kershaw, Kris Bryant, Trevor Story and Corey Seager. The cards will only be available via Topps.com for one week.

“Throwback Thursday is a fun way to blend the nostalgia of Topps with the celebration of today’s stars,” said Jeff Heckman, Topps’ Director of New Product Development & eCommerce Marketplace. “We kicked it off with one of the most-popular trading card designs in history, and we have some great themes lined up for coming weeks that will excite baseball fans and collectors.”
