Jackie Robinson Day Online Exclusive Cards from Topps - Turn Back the Clock & Project 2020

It comes as no surprise that Topps has issued a couple of online exclusive cards featuring Jackie Robinson on this day -- Jackie Robinson Day. First, take a look at the 'Turn Back the Clock' card at the very top. Go here to check it out and order. It celebrates Jackie breaking the color barrier. Per the description on the reverse:
April 15, 1947 -- On a day that will be remembered forever in Baseball history - Jackie Robinson, took his position at first base for Brooklyn and broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball. The 28--year-old, who had a sterling 1946 season with the Dodgers affiliate in Montreal, reached on an error and scored in the bottom of the seventh inning, helping Brooklyn to the 5-3 win over Boston.
The second Topps Jackie Robinson card available today is a Project 2020 card created by artist Sophia Chang, aka Esymai. See it below.

As you may know, Sophia Chang is a Queens, NY based illustrative designer well known for her streetwear and pop culture aesthetic. Per Highsnobiety:
I used to be heavily influenced by cartoons. Of course it still influences me today, in different ways. Some people still see illustration as cartoons. Using line and color and giving life to drawing is something very exciting to me. I love being inspired by other illustrators and creatives.

BTW, this is the second Jackie Robinson card released so far. The first card, released in late-March, was created by artist Naturel, and you can see it here.

  1. That Project 2020 is one of the cooler cards I've seen. At first I thought it was drawn by the Sophia Chang who worked with A Tribe Called Quest and some of the members of Wu-Tang.

    1. Yeah, it's a nice one... I'm looking forward to seeing the card made by Mr. Cartoon
