Rumors were confirmed this week that the Pittsburgh Pirates and St. Louis Cardinals will play a regular season game in Williamsport, PA this year. The game will take place on August 20th, right in the middle of the Little League World Series. It’ll be broadcast on ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball”, and played at BB&T Ballpark at Historic Bowman Field. Based on the official press release from the Williamsport Crosscutters, only Little Leaguers and their families will be invited. Tickets will not be sold to the general public.
The MLB Little League Classic would make for a perfect Topps Now card. It is right on par with the Fort Bragg game they played in 2016. I’m predicting that Topps will make a Topps Now card to commemorate this game. If they do, it would most likely show up for sale on August 21st. I at least just want to see a base Topps Now card made. If any of the players do something spectacular, I guess autographs and/or relics won’t be out of the picture. Whoever pulls the Topps Now Golden Ticket for August 20, 2017 will be due a special gold stamped parallel #’ed/1.
Its not easy to predict who and what will receive a Topps Now card. This game feels like a sure thing. Having it take place in my backyard is even cooler. I visit BB&T Ballpark at Historic Bowman Field almost every summer for a bobblehead night.
