Topps National Baseball Card Day is Saturday, Aug. 7, and what better way to celebrate than with a truck filled with baseball cards.
Topps has created a month-long pop-up truck tour to help celebrate its National Baseball Card Day. The Topps Truck, which is wrapped in 11,000 baseball cards, will travel more than 7,000 miles, bringing baseball fans the ultimate baseball card experience.
The tour will begin on Friday July 9 in Denver to kick off MLB’s All-Star Week. It will then travel to numerous other cities, stopping at MLB stadiums, hobby shops and local events across the country. The tour will conclude Aug. 12 at the Field of Dreams game in Deyersville, Iowa.
Throughout the month-long journey, on-site teams at each location will host trivia contests and cornhole games, along with free baseball cards and Topps swag giveaways. Fans are also invited to take photos in a life-size Topps card frame to create their own card and trade cards at the mobile Topps Card Wall, a staple activity at Topps events.
“Every year, National Baseball Card Day is a reminder of Topps’ rich heritage and the infectious card collecting hobby that has remained a staple for sports fans and collectors of all ages,” said Emily Kless, Topps Communications Manager. “In 2019, we celebrated National Baseball Card Day with a pop-up Topps Truck in NYC, and this year, as we continue to celebrate Topps’ 70th Anniversary of baseball cards, we wanted to bring our Topps Truck to fans across the states, and celebrate our favorite players, iconic game moments, and more, at MLB stadiums and hobby shops nationwide.”
The nation’s leading baseball card manufacturing, which is officially licensed by MLB, is also teaming up with FOX to raise awareness of NBCD and the highly anticipated Field of Dreams game.
Topps is also giving away packs of cards in hobby shops across the country on Saturday August 7. Consumers can follow the Topps Truck’s journey on social media @Topps and celebrate using the hashtag #ToppsNBCD.
