Topps promotion is top-notch

The Topps Company, longtime maker of baseball cards, has decided to feature one of my past columns in its “Topps Million Card Giveaway” promotion. I am both humbled and honored.
The column was from earlier this year and centered on a father-son-baseball-baseball cards theme. The piece included some very personal and wonderful memories about my father and the collecting of baseball cards when I was a kid.
Topps figured out a way to bring baseball-card collecting into the digital world with this promotion. It has reinvigorated my interest in baseball cards — something I never really lost through the years anyway — and I now get to share the hobby with my stepson. It’s heartening to watch the joy he gets from collecting and trading his cards.
