I imagine that when the idea for Topps Now was being proposed, moments such as Ichiro's 3,000th hit were big selling points on the idea. Well, Ichiro picked up the historic hit on August 7 and I made sure to partake in the 5-pack of the Topps Now card. I sent one of them off to my good friend, Ryu; I'll keep one for myself, and I gave my wife one, since she loves Ichiro. The others, I will probably sell at some point at a show.
As of tonight, Ichiro stands at 3,018 hits, 27th All Time. The Topps Now card is really nice, and I am glad I decided to pick it up.
