Little League Classic


I'm hopelessly addicted to adding all the Pirates Topps NOW cards so this card commemorating the first Little Little Classic was a guaranteed buy.  By all accounts the game was a success.  All the players seemed to get a kick out of hanging out with the kids. I had heard that baseball might be interested in making this one a yearly thing.

 I saw lots of cool pictures leading up to the game.




As for the NOW card itself I thought it was neat to show the two teams in the traditional end of the game hand shakes. It was nice seeing the Cardinals players be good sports about it even after a tough loss.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Who do you get yours from? I always seem to be a day or few behind you. Are you going direct through Topps or still using an eBay seller? I'm curious.

  2. Excellent card, and a great promotion by MLB all around. I thought about picking up this one up at the time, might still try to scour Ebay to see if I can find a marked-down copy.

    1. You shouldn't have a problem. It had a big print run.

  3. That's pretty awesome! I'm a huge fan of watching the Little League World Series every year. Always amazed at the talent level for their age group.
