Eddie Vedder, Tom Morello + Jack White to Get Their Own Topps Baseball Cards
Get ready to trade some of your favorite rockers, or at least put them in the spokes of your bike. Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello and Jack White are among several musicians and celebrities who will be getting their own Topps baseball cards this year.
According to Beckett Media, the rockers will be part of the 15 ‘First Pitch Insert’ cards for the 2015 Topps Series 1 set. Vedder and Morello will be featured on Chicago Cubs cards, while White will be supporting the Detroit Tigers. ‘The Big Lebowski’ actor Jeff Bridges, musician Mackelmore and Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney are also among the list of baseball card recipients.
Rock stars have had a long-running relationship with baseball. For the 2013 World Series, Pearl Jam signed a deal with the MLB that let them use 48 of their songs throughout the games. During last year’s postseason, AC/DC’s track ‘Play Ball’ was used to promote the playoffs on TBS. And how could we forget about the baseball-themed grindcore band Puig Destroyer, who released their self-titled debut disc on the first day of last year’s baseball postseason.
