Flashback Product of the Week: 1985 Topps Baseball Photo Rub-Downs


Topps has literally tested millions of different ways collectors can enjoy the hobby.  Stickers, tattoos, posters, and even collectible masks have been some of the ideas they’ve ran with in the past.  In 1985 Topps released their Baseball Photo Rub-Downs product.  The set consists of 112 players featured on 32 different rub-down sheets.  If you take a coin and rub it over the paper backing of the sheet you can transfer the image to another surface.  Stuff like this was popular back in the 80’s, so it makes sense that Topps would try it.  There are 36 packs per box each containing 2 sheets.  Boxes can be found for under $10.00.
