Ben Zobrist’s ballpark bike ride gets second run on cardboard for charity


When Chicago Cubs second baseman Ben Zobrist biked his way to Wrigley Field in full uniform earlier this season, he got plenty of attention and his adventure even ended up on a Topps Now baseball card.

With his team a win away from a World Series berth, he and his now-famous free-wheeling ways are helping raise money for charity via a new baseball card released by Topps.


All net proceeds from the sale of his new card, which uses the 2016 Topps design, will go to Patriot Forward Project and every purchase gets a collector entered in a contest to win a Heritage Bicycles custom bike valued at $1,400. The winner will be selected after the World Series ends.

The cards are $9.99 apiece and only initially available via with discounts available for quantity purchases of up to 20 cards.
