Thanks to Baseball Dad's recent post about Topps Chipz, I picked up a pack at Target today. If you aren't familiar with these little nuggets, they are poker chips dressed like baseballs with players on them. You get 4 to pack with a chance for glow-in-the-dark, relic, and whatever else Topps thought they could shove into a plastic poker chip. Here's the breakdown:
Elvis Andrus - Rangers - Jafronius (Wahoo!!)
A's Team Logo "Sticker" - Actually something more akin to a Colorforms vinyl piece.
Yoenis Cespedes - A's (Under the logo) - Eg9460 (Wahoo!!)
Brett Lawrie Glow-in-the-Dark - Blue Jays - Cattle Rustler (Wahoo!!)
Yadier Molina - Cardinals - E_Rose (Wahoo!!)
Wahoo!! Hit for the cycle on 4 chips, er Chipz!! Excellent! Congrats folks! There is a good chance we'll see more of these before the season ends. I like oddball stuff, and this certainly qualifies. Here is my question, though: Could other companies make these with the MLB license? These are NOT cards. I haven't read the specifics of the Topps Monopoly Agreement with the MLB to know the answer.
