Topps® Celebrates National Baseball Card Day with
Nationwide Pop-up Truck Tour
Baseball Fans Across the Country are Welcome to Visit the Topps Experience
(New York, NY, July 6, 2021) – The Topps Company®, the official trading card partner of Major League Baseball, is excited to announce its month-long pop-up truck tour in celebration of Topps National Baseball Card Day on Saturday August 7.
Starting on Friday July 9 in Denver, CO, the Topps Truck will kick off at MLB’s All-Star Week, and then travel to numerous cities stopping at MLB stadiums, hobby shops and local events across the country, finally ending at the Field of Dreams game in Deyersville, IA on August 12. The Topps Truck, wrapped entirely in over 11,000 baseball cards, will travel more than 7,000 miles, bringing baseball fans the ultimate fandom experience. Throughout the month-long journey, the onsite teams in each location will host trivia contests and cornhole games, along with free baseball cards and Topps swag giveaways. Fans are also invited to take a photo in a life-size Topps card frame to become their own card, as well as trade 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.”
In addition, Topps is teaming up with FOX to raise awareness of NBCD, and the highly anticipated Field of Dreams game, which will take place in Deyersville, IA on Thursday August 12.
To commemorate the occasion, Topps is also giving away packs of cards in hobby shops across the country in honor of NBCD on Saturday August 7. Consumers can follow the Topps Truck’s journey on social media @Topps, and celebrate using the hashtag #ToppsNBCD.
