Topps MLB Logo Man Programs


RuthTopps, the exclusive producer of Major League Baseball Trading cards, celebrates 2010 with two special MLB logo man programs.  The program highlights the best of players of yesterday, today and tomorrow!


In 2010 Topps Series 1, collectors have been discovering special manufactured MLB logo man patch cards sequentially numbered to 50 (image attached).  These are the first cards of a unique 100-card set that can be collected throughout the year.  The first 10 cards can be found in Series 1 and the remaining 90 will be seeded in Topps’ other 17 baseball products.  Next up will be Topps Heritage, featuring cards 11-15.


Starting on Opening Day of the Major League Baseball season, collectors can walk into participating Topps Home Team Advantage hobby shops and pick up one of 50 different logo man cards (without patch) just by purchasing pack(s) of 2010 Topps Baseball.

My take: So far only a handful of these have shown up on eBay and they have been extremely popular.  They’re an extremely tough pull and worthy of the prices that they have been selling for even though they are manufactured and not game used.  The 500 people who pull one of these cards ten cards out of 2010 Topps are very lucky indeed.  By keeping the numbering fairly low, Topps has kept interest high in the manufactured logos in this year’s product as the hat logos have been selling well on eBay as well.
