John Elway to Get First Topps Baseball Card

2005 Topps Fan Favorites John Elway Baseball Card Not many people know that the New York Yankees drafted Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway out of Stanford University in 1981. In his first year of pro baseball, he hit .318 and had a team-high 25 RBIs in 42 games. He went on to a legendary career on the gridiron, but never had a chance to be on a Topps Baseball Card.

That's all about to change! Make way for what is sure to be the best Fan Favorites Baseball offering to date.

Over 120 favorites of the game will be AUTOGRAPHING for 2005 Fan Favorites Baseball including:

  • John Elway
  • Barry Bonds
  • Yankees GM Brian Cashman
  • Cardinals GM Walt Jockety
  • Giants GM Brian Sabean
  • Broadcaster Jon Miller
  • MLB Exec. Marvin Miller
  • Ernie Banks, Johnny Bench, Yogi Berra, George Brett, Reggie Jackson, Stan Musial, Cal Ripken, Mike Schmidt, Tom Seaver, Nolan Ryan, Frank Robinson, Wade Boggs, Brooks Robinson, Steve Carlton, Gary Carter, Don Mattingly, Duke Snider, Denny McLain, Edgar Martinez and many more.

And there are two all-new autograph subsets:

  • Rookie Dual Autographs (#'d to 50) include Nolan Ryan/Johnny Bench and Tom Seaver/Rod Carew
  • League Leader Tri-Signers (#'d to 50) include Jackson/Schmidt/Brett, Mattingly/Boggs/Gooden and F. Robinson/Snider/Musial.

2005 Fan Favorites GUARANTEES 2 Autographs per box.

The 150 base-card set, which features never before seen photography on classic Topps designs, is mirrored by a Gold Bordered Refractor Parallel (#'d to 25) and a White Bordered Refractor Parallel (#'d to 299).

The AUTOGRAPHS also have a parallel - Rainbow (#'d to 10).

Each box GUARANTEES a Relic Card from one of these programs:

(27) Fan Favorites - Game-worn from the likes of Nolan Ryan and Bo Jackson.
(27) Fan Favorites Rainbow (#'d to 25)
(6) Best Seat in the House
(6) Best Seat in the House Rainbow (#'d to 25)

2005 Fan Favorites ships the week of June 6th and carries a $5 SRP for each 6-card pack. Each 24-pack box includes 2 AUTOGRAPHS and 1 RELIC.
