Yesterday Topps tweeted they had some BIG news to share. Now we know that tweet was meant to be taken literally.
Lakeland, Florida is once again Tiger Town USA as spring training returns today. It was there that the Topps Company revealed the World’s Largest Baseball Card, created to celebrate the return of baseball nationwide and the new 2013 Topps Series 1 Baseball Cards.
|This gives a whole new meaning to being on-card!|
Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder and nearly 100 youth baseball players from Lakeland City Baseball unveiled the card. Measuring nearly 90 ft. tall and 60 ft. wide, this massive baseball card depicts the image of Fielder, who appears on the cover of the Topps 2013 Series 1 box.
The grand reveal of this giant card took place at Peterson Park, a youth baseball field just a few miles south of where Fielder’s Tigers teammates will hold their first workout of Spring Training for the 2013 season.
