The Chicago Cubs‘ dominating Game 2 victory in the World Series Wednesday night was sparked by the hot bat of a returning slugger and the strong arm of an ace who held the Cleveland Indians hitless deep into the night as part of a 6-0 win.
Today, the slugger and the ace have new Topps Now cards that will only be available for 24 hours via Topps.com as part of its real-time baseball card program.
The slugger is, of course Kyle Schwarber, who will be signing six types of standard and Relic cards, while the ace is Jake Arrieta, who is among the remaining five cards as part of today’s offering.
Schwarzer’s standard autograph is limited to 199 serial-numbered copies and is $99.99, while auto Relics, which include a piece of a base used in the game range from $199.99 to $1,499.99 for the 1/1 parallel. (It’s already sold out.)
The five standard cards are $9.99 apiece and will be printed to order Joining Schwarber and Arrieta on those cards are Ben Zobrist, Anthony Rizzo and a combo card of David Ortiz and Kris Bryant, who were honored as the Hank Aaron Award winners before the game. No Indians made cardboard in this round.
