Topps, among many others, went silent to show solidarity for the Black Lives Matter movement on 6/2. The post on the Topps website read:
So it was the first business day since the beginning that the two cards were delayed, but they are here now, and they come from two of the more popular artists on social media with Blake Jamieson and Tyson Beck. They released a sure-to-top 90,000 thousand Mike Trout, and Sandy Koufax Respectively.
Topps has also announced that with Trout’s card, which is card 100, he will be signing 10 copies that will be randomly inserted among orders. This would replace the card itself, so you wouldn’t receive a base and an auto’d version.
The wording seems that this will be ongoing for every Trout card moving forward in the set. Be sure to check out the full artist gallery here.
With hopefully the first of many collabs, Jamieson teams up with Ben Baller to add some bling to the iconic 2011 Topps update rookie
Similar to Theile in the sense of scattered memories, Beck’s Koufax is a love letter to Brooklyn with all of the details in the background of this card.
