If Andy Warhol were a baseball card hobbyist, the iconic Rookie Cup would’ve drawn his attention as a subject matter… repurposing consumer culture. This mashup reimagines Warhol's Campbell's Soup cans as Rookie Cups.
Topps named their first All-Star Rookie team in 1959, and introduced a tall trophy for 1960. In 1973, they replaced it with this smaller Revere Cup. But, it disappeared after the 1978 set (highlighted by Eddie Murray and Andrew Dawson).
Fast forward to 1987… a surging card boom saw Topps facing increased competition, and Jose Canseco’s Donruss Rated Rookie was taking the hobby by storm. To counteract, Topps turned back the clock with a wood grain design reminiscent of 1962, and relaunched the All-Star Rookie Cup. Due to massive overproduction, it’s estimated that at least 1 million Canseco All-Star Rookies were printed, with some experts guessing upwards of 4 million.
Each card is printed onto a holographic foil adhesive and topped with a layer of sparkling dust... complementing these shiny trophies. Signed on the back foil.
