My First Ever Topps Baseball Card

Updated: May 2, 2019

Remember as a kid, anytime you got a baseball card, regardless of the significance, you held onto it closely, in the hopes that one day it would be worth thousands? I remember every chance I got I would get a card pack, sometimes at the most random places. From

years of collecting, I accumulated hundreds of cards.

The unique part about this is my card collection joined my dad’s collection that he spent hours collecting as a kid. Something special that has been with him for nearly 50 years.

As I sit back and think back on it, there is no telling what kind of cards we have in there.

There was never a moment when I was collecting cards that I thought I would open a pack of cards and see my face and name on the front.

The dream of playing in the MLB has always been in the back of my head, but when I first was presented with the opportunity to sign a contract with Topps, one of the premiere card brands, I was in shock; I never dreamed anything like that would happen to me!

As I sit in my room, finishing up signing nearly 6,000 cards and stickers, I can’t believe the release of my first ever 1st Edition Bowman Signature Series Card releases this week!

For a good laugh and to show you what goes on behind the scenes, I will give you an insight of what it looks like with me trying to sign thousands and thousands of cards.
