Tomorrow, August 8th, is National Baseball Card Day. Topps has released the details for their giveaways and there are more ways to take advantage this year. In addition to the their traditional giveaways and promotions at participating hobby shops, collectors have a chance to score giveaways at retail locations. Both Walmart and Target will have special offers for those collectors that do not live near a hobby shop.
Hobby Stores will be giving away special packs of card. There are also two additional cards you can get when you make a qualifying purchase of $10 or more. These bonus cards are Pete Alonso (Week 1 – August 8th) and Yordan Alvarez (Week 2 – August 15th). The full list of participant hobby shops can be found by clicking here.
This year Walmart and Target will also have special offers. At Target, you can get a special pack inside 2020 Chrome Hanger Boxes and a special offer for Topps Fire. At Walmart, you get also get a pack inside of 2020 Chrome Hanger Box and your special offer is for Topps Gallery.
We at Sport Cards Daily hope you have a local shop you can visit and support on this day to help keep the hobby growing. Many shops have been hurt this year by the reduced foot traffic during the pandemic and this day can really help show them the local collecting community is there to support them.
