Why am I only now finding out about this card?
It has just come to my attention that Clayton's nonprofit foundation, Kershaw's Challenge, has their own exclusive Topps Baseball card.
From what I understand, this card was never inserted into packs for collectors to find. Instead, they were only available directly from the pitcher himself. All a fan had to do was to personally write to him. Check out pics of it above and below.
As you can see, it uses the exact same image and card design from Topps' 2016 flagship Baseball card set, but includes something different on the reverse. It includes a write-up on his foundation and brief information about signed memorabilia available for sale that benefits his charity.
This card is neither rare or scarce, and they have been selling online over the past several months for just a few bucks apiece.
I am uncertain if these cards are still being sent out to fans. If you want to try to get one though, I might suggest writing to Kershaw (addressed to Dodger Stadium) and making a request. And it probably wouldn't hurt to drop a small donation in the envelope, as well.
