2021 Topps National Baseball Card Day NBCD Topps Truck Tour
A new element this year is the nationwide pop-up truck tour, which travels around the country. The truck gets moving on July 9 at MLB All-Star Week in Denver and finishes on August 12 at the Field of Dreams Game in Dyersville, Iowa, with many visits along the way. This includes "stopping at MLB stadiums, hobby shops and local events across the country."
Per Topps, "the onsite teams in each location will host trivia contests and cornhole games, along with free baseball cards and Topps swag giveaways. Fans are also invited to take a photo in a life-size Topps card frame to become their own card, as well as trade at the mobile Topps Card Wall, a staple activity at Topps events."
At this point, Topps has not revealed the exact list of scheduled stops. However, fans can follow along at the official Topps Twitter account.
