Bryce Harper's Debut Sends Topps into Action

With his debut in the books for Washington Nationals, Bryce Harper has finally made it onto the big stage. With that, Topps has announced its plans for Harper cards in the remaining 2012 baseball products.

Topps, the exclusive producer of Bryce’s autograph cards, was rigorously making adjustments to its products to get his 2012 rookie card and autographed rookie cards into products ASAP. Harper made his big league debut this past weekend.


Here’s what collectors and fans can look forward to, according to Topps:

Bowman Baseball
In addition to having an autographed prospect card in retail and a Bowman black autograph in hobby, Bryce will be Lucky Redemption No. 2! The card, which will be limited to 100, will feature Harper in the rookie card design and will include his autograph.

Topps Series 2
Harper will be card No. 661, but because of limited timing the card will be short printed. In addition, there will be an autographed variation of this rookie card in both hobby and retail.

Topps Archives
Collectors will find redemptions in both hobby and retail for Bryce’s Fan Favorites autograph (on-card) and the young star will be included as a short printed base card (No. 241).

Topps Tier One
25 redemption cards will be inserted into packs for his “On the Rise” autographed rookie card (on-card).

Allen & Ginter
A&G will include both Harper’s standard and mini base rookie cards at the regular rate. The product will also include Harper’s autograph. And for his Red Autograph limited to 10…those can be had by tearing open Rip Cards and finding the “Mystery Redemption” mini!
