Top 50 eTopps Cards of All-Time

Top 50 eTopps Cards of All-Time

When eTopps first came on the collecting scene in 2000, the hobby world was intrigued. The concept was relatively simple. Collectors would purchase limited edition and exclusive cards directly from eTopps at pre-set prices and with specific print runs. Individual cards were priced anywhere from a few dollars to as much as $20. New cards would be made available each week and the cards would be held by eTopps in your "portfolio" until you wanted to pay for the shipping to have them mailed to you. Additionally, there were features that allowed you to seek or sell specific cards to other collectors on the eTopps site, sell them directly on eBay, or track the actual values on eBay. There was also a rewards program that was based around player production for the cards you owned, as well as other criteria, like fantasy games. What could possibly go wrong?

Shop for eTopps cards on eBay.

The problems came almost immediately. Although the first cards issued by the site initially spiked in value, speculation was rampant and the high values soon dipped. The program was beset by server problems, printing delays and general website issues. The early popularity also pushed Topps to raise print runs to as high as 10,000 cards, which further decreased values. Although the masses had already moved elsewhere, the dagger came in early 2012 when eTopps was essentially frozen in place. The site is still live, but no new cards are to be produced. This apparent limbo confused and concerned collectors. Then Topps announced that the shipping costs to acquire the previously purchased cards would be raised and that the reward points could no longer be used to pay for for shipping charges. Currently, the only thing that continues to be updated on a somewhat regular basis is the rewards catalog.

While eTopps is now a shell of its former self, many unique and appealing cards still remain. Limited autographed versions were organized and authenticated through the site and still sell for strong values. The process also allowed unlikely situations to play out based on a particularly low print run. Tony Banks, James Thrash, and Kevin Johnson (the football player), are afterthoughts in collecting, but their eTopps cards are still some of the top sellers. Other odd cards were produced as well. Because he has yet to sign a deal with Topps, the 2009 eTopps Matt Wieters is his only Topps card to date. Also, the 2011 eTopps Brett Lawrie card is the only 2011 card for the young Blue Jays star that is licensed by the MLB and MLBPA. His other rookie cards were not produced until 2012.

The following list contains the top 50 most valuable eTopps cards. The majority are from the 2001 releases. The card image and print run is also included.

  1. I am glad to see Ronald Reagan on the list but no Barack Obama?

  2. Toro » While the Obama was once in the $80-100 range, it’s now down to less than $20.

  3. I bought cards several years ago and I don’t know how to access my old account. I would like to sell them. At the time I was with MSN.com. can you help me?
