2019 Topps 150 Years of Baseball - Sandy's Perfect Game

Topps has just unveiled a brand new online exclusive card brand and it coincides with the 150th anniversary of game.

As you know, in 1869 the very first openly all-professional baseball club is formed and they would be called the Cincinnati Red Stockings. They would play a remarkable undefeated season -- going 60-0 against all-comers. They even defeating the highly regarded clubs from the northeast -- the Mutual's of New York, Atlantic's of Brooklyn, and Eckford of Brooklyn. BTW, this same season the Chicago Base-Ball Association is founded and they would come to be known as the Chicago Cubs.

In celebration of Baseball's 150 year milestone Topps will issue three cards every Tuesday in order to memorialize the greatest accomplishments in the sport. This first week features Sandy Koufax's perfect game on September 9, 1965. Check it out above. Go here to check it out and order. The other two available cards are of Babe Ruth and Mike Trout.
