Aaron Judge Scores Seven Of Top 10 Topps NOW Cards To Date In 2017

Judge 50 HR-1_Page_1Yankees RF Aaron Judge’s record-setting rookie year has included plenty of highlights and accolades. One measure of his immense popularity is his appearance on seven of the top 10 Topps NOW cards issued to date in 2017. Judge, featured again today after his two-homer peformance on Monday set the mark for rookie round-trippers (50 and counting), has accounted for the first, second, third, seventh, eighth, ninth and tenth highest selling card of the year, topping out at 8997 sold of the one featuring his Home Run Derby title and 8623 of the one commemorating his 495-foot blast at Yankee Stadium and two-homer day on June 11.

Judge also ranks No. 1 with 26 total cards issued with his likeness this year, outdistancing fellow rookies Cody Bellinger of the Dodgers and Rhys Hoskins of the Phillies.

In the A.L. MVP race, Judge is the clear favorite (at least on the Topps front), with contenders Chris Sale (11 cards), Corey Kluber (eight), Mike Trout (six), Francisco Lindor (four) and Jose Altuve (two) distantly behind.

The latest Judge card is available through 3 p.m. Wednesday at https://www.topps.com/toppsnow.
