For the first time in Topps history, the iconic company has given over the reins to someone else.
Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper has created his own Topps baseball card set, featuring top players in the league, his all-time favorites – and even guys with the best hair.
Three players with direct N.Y. ties are in the set, including Aroldis Chapman and Jacob deGrom in Harper’s selected team, plus Derek Jeter among his all-time favorites.
Topps X Bryce Harper “220” is a first-of-its-kind set where Harper hand-picked the design, chose the players, theme, and added his own words to it. His meticulous approach resulted in a set fans are sure to love.
“I have never done anything like this to really design a product, put something forward like this,” said Harper whose father collected baseball cards. “I’ve done cleats and bats, but to be able to do a baseball card is special.”
“220” is a title picked by Harper to signify his personal mantra of “Second to None.” Every detail of the set was picked by Harper to reflect who he is and his love for the game.
Topps X Bryce Harper “220” features the following components:
• Fourteen of MLB’s top players that would encompass his own team
• Best Hair: Harper’s top five MLB players with great hair
• Harper’s Heroes: highlights his all-time favorite moments in MLB history
• Look Good, Feel Good: Showcases the essence of Harper on and off the field.
