Now some good news from the Topps front.

A little unannounced surprise from Topps in the recent 2015 Topps Garbage Pail Kids release, there are MLB players autographs included. When I did a quick peek on the product last week I had even written how cool it would be to see GPK versions of Mantle, Mays, Campanella, McGwire and Clemens. We may not seem them but we will see GPK versions of players like Josh Donaldson, Manny Machado, Mike Piazza and Joey Votto. The official checklist has not been announced so there may be additional players.

The cards are based on the 2015 Topps Baseball design and while the players have been given the GPK treatment the artists were not allowed to use the teams colors or logos due to some legal issues. I am guessing that it is because this isn’t a MLB release so they probably would have required a special authorization.
