Teddy Immortalized on Cardboard

Teddy has been immortalized on cardboard.

Teddy is Topps in Cincinnati.

Teddy Kremer can add another highlight to an otherwise magical 2013 – An official baseball card. Kremer, an honorary bat boy for the Reds who has warmed Cincinnati hearts the past two season, is featured in Topps’ 2013 Updates and Highlight set on card #US268, a variation of Joey Votto’s All-Star card.

The card will surely be a hit with Reds fans everywhere, but getting one for your collection may prove difficult. Kremer’s card is a SSP, or “super short print“. In other words, it’s rare – Super rare. Topps does not release information on print runs of cards like these, so it’s tough to say how many are in circulation. Collectors have already been chomping at the bit to acquire the card – several auctions on eBay have ended over $100 with at least another one on the way, as of the writing of this post.

It just shows the power of Kremer’s story and how it has captured this city.

What an fantastic honor for Teddy.

Moeller Card Show updates

We wanted to pass along the latest information from one of our favorite events — the Moeller Sports Card Show, being held at Moller High School April 26th, 27th & 28th.

According to the email newsletter that was sent out earlier today, jockey Steve Cauthen has cancelled his appearance and Big Red Machine pitcher Don Gullet’s scheduled appearance looks doubtful. For the Cauthen fans out there, Cincy Card Shows was able to hold a private signing with Cauthen and signed items will be available for purchase at the Moeller show.

To make up the cancellations, Eric Davis has been added to the lineup and will be signing from 1:30 – 3:30pm on Saturday and 10:30am – 12:30pm on Sunday. Prices will be $20 on a small flat or a ball, $30 on a large item or equipment. A free inscription is included.

The spring Moeller Show lineup will now include Johnny Bench, Don Gullet (TBD), Norm Charlton, Arron Pryor, Will McEaney, Jack Billingham and Eric Davis. Times, pricing and more details can be found at cincycardshows.com.

Along with the celebrity appearances and fantastic dealer tables, Cincy Cards Shows will be raffling off a painting of Johnny Bench by local sports artist Brent Naughton. Here are the details:

Some of you have seen his work at the Moeller shows before or maybe you have seen his artwork elsewhere. Brent Naughton has created an awesome 11×14 painting of Johnny Bench. You can see this at www.facebook.com/cincycardshows During the show split the pot tickets will be sold for the artwork. The artwork will be signed by Johnny Bench and given away at 3pm on Saturday. The winner that is pulled must pick up the artwork from the show by 4pm on Sunday. The way the split the pot works is that tickets will be sold $10 each or 3 for $25. Half of the money will go to Brent to recoup his costs on the piece. The other half will be donated to Moeller High School. Thanks to Brent for making this possible.
