Floating Heads For Everyone!

Something that caught my attention is the just released Topp’s online exclusive 1967 Test Sticker wall art, which is surprising because I have never been a fan of the floating head cards. There are 20 players on the checklist, each card is 11”x17”, will be #/99 and they cost $49.99 each. They will also be printed on Heritage-style stock, which is pretty cool. They are only available for a couple of days, through March 31st.

The players on the checklist:
Luis Aparicio
Ernie Banks
Johnny Bench
Yogi Berra
George Brett
Gary Carter
Rod Carew
Rollie Fingers
Carlton Fisk
Reggie Jackson
Al Kaline
Harmon Killebrew
Willie McCovey
Brooks Robinson
Nolan Ryan
Mike Schmidt
Tom Seaver
Ozzie Smith
Willie Stargell
Robin Yount
If you purchase all 20 cards, which costs $900, you will receive the cards in an oversized wax pack (pretty cool) plus you will get a “Patriotic” parallel that will be #/10 each. There are five players in the parallel set; Bench, Jackson, Schmidt, Seaver and Ryan.

I think the reason that I am drawn to these, as compared to the floating head cards, is that these are wall art so they would make a nice display in the man cave plus they are significantly cheaper than the cards. Though being the tightwad that I am, as much as I would love the Reggie Jackson card, I have no plan on spending $50 for an oversized box topper.
