2017 Topps Now Predictor: MLB Little League Classic – August 20th

 photo toppsnowlogo_zpstj6hfku6.jpg

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.

“Pin-Up” of the Week: 2013 MLB World Series Press Pins

 photo 2013wspresspins_zpsa3704b6c.jpg

Boston did it again last night.  They went on to win the 2013 World Series.  I wonder if Bobby Valentine was watching?  Former Phillie Shane Victorino got it started with a bases loaded blast off the Green Monster, while Big Pappi went on to be the M.V.P.  Its the first time the Red Sox have won the World Series on their home field in 95 years.

The World Series has a lot of merchandise.  Just ask QVC and HSN.  They probably started churning out Red Sox stuff as soon as Carpenter struck out.  Two of the biggest collectibles you could get from this past World Series are the press pins.  The Cardinals and Red Sox each had a pin made for members of the media.  Right now would not be the ideal time to purchase one as the World Series hasn’t even been over for 24 hours.  These are in high demand selling for $150.00 per pin.  I’d let some time pass before adding either one to your collection.  They’ll cool off.
