DALLAS, Texas (KALB) - If you collected baseball cards as a kid (or even still as an adult), you know there is no feeling like the feeling of ripping open a pack of fresh baseball cards.
To celebrate the 2020 baseball season, the Topps company held its first-ever "Million Card Rip Party" at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas Tuesday.
The even featured 2019 Rookie of the Year, Pete Alonso of the New York Mets, as 19 teams of “card breakers” alongside Alonso ripped open more than 1-million baseball cards from over 21,000 jumbo packs of Topps’ new Series 1 Collection.
Alonso ripped open the first pack of cards to commemorate the official launch of the collection, and the first-of-its-kind event in the history of baseball. The event was live-streamed via Topps.com and on Topps’ social media platforms.
This year’s Series 1 packs include rookie highlight cards, record-breaking moments, and randomly inserted tickets for Topps’ first-ever “Celebration of the Decades” party which will be held this November in Las Vegas.
Fans that find a lucky ticket in their packs will have the opportunity to meet MLB stars at the event to celebrate almost 70 years of baseball card history.
