“The response from fans who logged on to view and purchase the wall art exceeded what we were anticipating in the first year, and shows we are on the right track as we expand our business offerings going forward,” said Jeff Heckman, Manager of Marketing, Topps Digital. "The immediacy and the quality of the wall art print were beyond reproach, and created a hot new instant collectable that will be a staple for years to come.”
Leading the way amongst the best sellers were a trio of San Francisco Giants; Madison Bumgarner, Travis Ishikawa, and Joe Panik, followed by the Royals Eric Hosmer and Lorenzo Cain.
Additionally, Topps will be offering limited edition prints of the top five performers of the entire postseason based on Bloomberg Sports’ customized B-Rank analytic system. The players in that group are: Bumgarner, Washington’s Bryce Harper, Kansas City’s Mike Moustakas, St. Louis’ Matt Carpenter, and Kansas City’s Yordano Ventura.
