Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google, Apple, & Blogging Get Topps Rookie Cards

Photobucket

Browsing through all the new 2011 Topps American Pie auctions is down right fun.  Topps has hit the nail on the head when it comes to this product.  The base set consists of 200 cards that take you back in time and I guarantee you will have some flashbacks to your childhood.  Each hobby box should contain at least (3) “hits”.  These could be any combination of autograph, relic, patch, stamp, and coin cards.

In this high-tech age, its interesting to see the first cards made of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google, Apple, and even blogging.  Its funny to see something low-tech like a baseball card commemorate something so technically advanced.  There are plenty of other people, places, events, and things that have their first cards within this product as well.  Just take a look at the checklist.  I thoroughly enjoy the tech-themed cards Topps included.  These cards bring back so many memories.  This is something a lot of modern-day card sets do not do.

Topps Embracing Social Media

It has only been a few days since James O’Hara took the role of CEO over at Topps and you can already see positive improvements with the company.  You can now follow Topps on Twitter and today they launched their Facebook Fan Page.  I’m glad to see Topps finally embracing social media in order to learn more about their customers and receive feedback on their products.  I’ve been able to easily get in contact with them via Twitter if I have any questions.
