When it comes to baseball cards, Topps remains the gold standard. With the 2017 Series 1 collection already released, Topps is hard at work readying plenty of new offerings to baseball fans throughout the upcoming season. The Topps Now program was a great addition to the card collecting scene a season ago, and what's in store for the season ahead should continue to be plenty exciting.
Earlier this offseason, Topps sent out thank you cards to customers that purchased Topps Now product a season ago. While it was a nice touch in and of itself, maybe the most exciting bit was that they would be unveiling "Road to Opening Day" sets. Players will be revealed for each team throughout spring training, and the set itself comes with some added perks.
