You knew this had to happen. After announcements about the Gold Rush wrapper redemption program and the Gold Tickets good for Gold Infused MLB Baseballs signed by Hank Aaron, Willie Mays and Ken Griffey, Jr., there was still one untapped golden idea left. Today Topps announced they have produced 16 cards that are made of pure 14K solid gold.
These “Solid Golden Greats” cards are one of ones and feature legendary players like Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron. They have been slabbed by Beckett Grading Services with identification and an exclusive Topps logo.
Redemption cards for the corresponding “Solid Golden Greats” cards will be inserted exclusively in hobby boxes of 2012 Topps Baseball Series 1. The release date for 2012 Topps Baseball Series 1 is next week.
