What’s up for grabs at The National Sports Collectors Convention? by Chris Olds

Topps has unveiled its limited edition cards for the National Sports Collectors Convention, which will take place about a month from now in Baltimore, Md.

For the last few years, the longest-running manufacturer of baseball cards — and the lone MLB licensee — did not have a presence at the show, but this year the company will be there.

And, the first portion of that presence is being in the $119 VIP goody bag.

Topps will produce a five -card set for the show in the style of 1960 Topps — two Mickey Mantle cards (only one version per bag), a Nolan Ryan, a Yogi Berra and a Cal Ripken Jr.
