My First Topps Now Cards

I have always thought the Topps Now program was an awesome idea and a big money maker. Who wouldn't want captured moments of their favorite players throughout the season??!! My only problem was I didn't have the money to invest into it and missed out on many moments I would have bought if I had the money to.

All of the Aaron Judge cards and even a couple of Ken Griffey Jr's just to name a few. Not sure if I will ever be able to track those down.

But, I can at least now can say I own a few of the Topps Now cards thanks to @SpartyHawkCache
on Twitter whose recent contest I won.

I landed myself three cool Kansas City Royals.

The first one was Eibner's walk off win hit. Love the Gatorade bath here.

The Rally Mantis.

And another good rookie in Merrifield that stepped it up.
A big thanks goes out to@SpartyHawkCache for the awesome Topps Now mail day. They may not be Yankees, Griffey or Judge, but I plan on holding onto them for my PC as I may not see another Topps Now card.  

If you haven't followed him yet on Twitter please do so. Loves to talk about the hobby and does many giveaways. One of the hobby good guys.

Thoughts on my first Topps Now cards are welcomed in comments.


  1. I'm a big fan of the NOW program. My biggest complaint is the poor photo choices. It can be hit or miss. Other than that I've really enjoyed the concept. I've kept up with all the Pirate releases. I'm just thankful I'm not a Red Sox or Yankees collector....

  2. I love the Topps NOW, and also can't always afford them. I hope to get all the Tigers cards at some time through eBay, trades, etc.

  3. Great blog guys ... we are very happy your guys enjoy them! Those were the only Topps NOW card we purchased directly through Topps last year. We did pick up some of other "Royals" moments via eBay, but it can get pricey if you try to collect them all (even just your specific team). However, we do enjoy the concept too! Thanks again for the nice comments and the "shout out" via your blog! This is our first mention in any blog so many thanks for that! Keep up the great work!!! - M. Carlson (SpartyHawk Cache)
