Topps‘ Million Card Giveaway exclusive Stephen Strasburg card has been a strong seller.
The card, which is a 2010 Topps card showing his first MLB pitch, is different than the one that will appear in factory sets arriving later this year and was unveiled on the night of his big-league debut.
And now, the day of Strasburg’s fourth big-league start, Topps is allowing the first 300 holders of that card to have it personally signed — for $350.
“We are thrilled to offer baseball fans yet another opportunity to memorialize Stephen’s spectacular MLB debut. This very limited autograph card will be an incredible collectible for years to come,” said Warren Friss, Topps’ GM, in a release. “This is another way we can use our successful online million card giveaway program and get MLB fans even closer to the game.”
To have the card signed, collectors must have the card in their account on toppsmillion.com.
The 2010 Bowman Strasburg autograph has been a strong seller at $600, while the more limited versions have fetched as much as $900 and more for the rarest versions.
