    Big Papi is coming out of retirement to work for Topps!

    Baseball Slugger David Ortiz Named TOPPS NOW® Lead Scout &
    Topps Spokesperson


    (June 14, 2018) – David Ortiz’s vast baseball knowledge, discerning eyes, and flair for the moment made him the perfect candidate for a new role at The Topps Company.

    Topps, the exclusive trading card partner of Major League Baseball, is excited to announce Ortiz as a spokesperson and TOPPS NOW® lead scout. In this role, Ortiz will work with the Topps team in picking the best moments of the Major League Baseball season and support Topps’ initiatives throughout the year, including National Baseball Card Day.

    “The TOPPS NOW program is fun to work on with all the top moments captured on a card every day,” Ortiz said. “With rookie debuts, no-hitters, retirements, and big hits, TOPPS NOW has something for everyone. Baseball cards have been a part of my and my family’s life for a long time. I’m excited to work with Topps.”

    TOPPS NOW baseball cards, which are only available on Topps.com, celebrate the greatest moments and milestones from the MLB season, while giving baseball fans a chance to relive them for years to come. The physical cards are available to purchase the very next day through Topps.com, but for just 24 hours, and will not be available again. Only the number of cards ordered during that 24-hour window are printed.

    Ortiz was a perfect candidate for the TOPPS NOW lead scout. With his view of the game as one of the top sluggers in history, and baseball broadcast commentator, Ortiz has a way of seeing the game with a different lens. His love of baseball runs deep – and so do his friendships. He’s able to provide a bevy of insight that can’t be matched.

    Ortiz has had a number of prolific Topps baseball cards over the years, and he’s excited to showcase the cards for the next generation. He will take part in Topps’ outreach throughout the season, including National Baseball Card Day, which is held on the second Saturday in August.

    “David Ortiz is a fun, baseball-loving person. He fits right in with the personalities at Topps with their shared passion for the game,” said David Leiner, Topps Global General Manager of Sports & Entertainment. “We’re looking forward to our collaboration with David with him spreading the word about creating lasting memories through collecting trading cards.”

    Topps baseball cards have depicted great moments and players throughout its storied history, and is the definitive place to get a star’s rookie card. TOPPS NOW has featured the Chicago Cubs and Houston Astros winning the World Series; Ichiro, Adrian Beltre and Albert Pujols getting their respective 3,000th career MLB hits; and rookie debuts, including Shohei Ohtani, Aaron Judge, Ronald Acuña Jr., and more.
