In 2015, the All-Star Festivities were highlighted by a crowd-cheering performance in the Home Run Derby by Todd Frazier, Mike Trout winning his second All-Star Game MVP in a row, and glimpses of some of the hottest young stars such as Kris Bryant and Joc Pederson. Topps immortalizes those moments on cards with images and relic pieces that came straight from the Festivities. In fact, Topps received multiple boxes filled with the All-Star jerseys of nearly every player that attended the workout day and Home Run Derby.
These black-and-red jerseys will be used throughout 2016 products, including Topps Triple Threads Baseball, which is scheduled to come out in September. Triple Threads Baseball utilizes the jerseys in different cards that have been become a cornerstone of many collections. The types of cards that can be found in 2016 Topps Triple Threads Baseball that highlight that All-Star Game include:
