Topps is celebrating 70 years of producing baseball cards with a slew of limited edition pieces. As a part of their Project 70 collection, the company has collaborated with 51 notable artists and creatives across industries to reimagine some of the sport’s most iconic trading card designs.
Topps first released their first baseball card set in 1951 and now, seven decades later, the company is opening up the design process to visionaries worldwide. The artists collaborating are asked to reimagine and revisit their favorite MLB players and Topps designs for a limited edition collection.
Hip-hop mogul Snoop Dogg is amongst the 51 artists asked to collaborate on Topps 70th anniversary collection. Fans will also have a chance at getting their hands on special cards designed by well-known creatives including Bobby Hundreds, Mister Cartoon, Ben Baller, Chinatown Market, Futura and UNDERCOVER, just to name a few.
Each artist has been asked to create 20 Project 70 cards, with new cards launching daily online at Topps. The cards are only available for 70 hours. Special cards are available throughout the 70th-anniversary celebration including 70 Rainbow Foil editions randomly inserted into each card’s print run. Fans should look out for a 1/1 Gold Fram edition as well as 51 different Artist Proof editions which feature a silver frame.
Topps encourages fans to collect all 20 cards from any specific creative as fans will then receive an exclusive gold-stamped oversized print that features all 20 cards.
Take a look at the Topps cards designed by Snoop Dogg, Bobby Hundreds and Mister Cartoon above. Cards are now officially available online at Topps.
