Topps ringing 2011 with some big names
I'm a little late to the news, but Topps has gotten Sandy Koufax and Hank Aaron to sign baseball cards for 2011.
Aaron was most recently announced. His autographs will be included in 2011 Topps Heritage, 2011 Tribute and 2011 Gypsy Queen. Topps is getting two of baseball's all-time greats (and perhaps REAL home run king) into its products for the upcoming baseball card season.
Koufax and Aaron are the type of players who transcend teams. I would be thrilled to get these guys even though they never played for MY team. Aaron has a number of autographed - though many are short-printed - but this one looks pretty sharp. Heritage is the type of set made for old-school player autographs.
His last Topps auto came in 2005. So it's been a while since we've seen Hammerin' Hank on a card.
