Topps recently promised surprises in Topps Now.
It has delivered.
Ten lucky collectors will be finding autographs of world hit king Ichiro Suzuki among those that they ordered from the company.
At least one of the cards arrived inscribed with 4,257 and 6/15/16 — Suzuki’s career total and the date that he reached the mark. The card, of course, doesn’t mention Pete Rose because he cannot appear on MLB-licensed cardboard due to his being on the Ineligible List.
A total of 2,798 copies of the card were ordered from Topps and the occasional inclusion of surprise autographs gives collectors an added reason to order them straight from the company rather than buy on the secondary market.
The card was found and tweeted by @okumeister22.
