Mike Trout Auto RIPPED from Willie Stargell Card in 2022 Topps Rip

Would you RIP a Willie Stargell baseball card?  Tear up the card of a first-ballot baseball of Famer? That's what happened here with Vintage Breaks and inside the Stargell was a Mike Trout autograph! If this sounds crazy, let us show you the video and introduce you to TOPPS RIP.

Willie Stargell is a legendary baseball player. Inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame on his first try, "Pops" was a two-time World Series champion (1971, 1979), the NL NVP in 1979, and made seven All-Star squads. You wouldn't dare RIP a card of his, would you? What if there was a chance at an even better card INSIDE? That's the fun of TOPPS RIP. You get to choose whether or no to rip open one card to see what's inside! For Tim, he gambled on ripping a numbered Willie Stargell out of 75 and it paid off quiet well.



A MIKE TROUT auto /50 was ripped from a Willie Stargell /75 card. Congrats, Tim! Topps RIP is phenomenal; you get double the anticipation and excitement! RIP base cards are numbered to /99 and parallels are possible. A RED base card is  a 1/1 - would YOU rip a 1/1? Inside each card are mini cards numbered to /75 and could also contain parallels. As you can see, autographs are possible, too! You might rip a /10 Aaron Judge card and find a 1/1 Julio Rodriguez auto. So. Many. Possibilities.




If you want to try and pull a Mike Trout auto of your own, we have two options for you on Vintage Breaks right now - breaks by the card and a personal box. Each box comes with 4 cards that you can choose to keep as-is or rip to reveal the mini card inside. 

By-the-card break = 4 spots available in the break. Each spot guarantees you 1 card from the box. We randomize the list of names live on the show for you and you can then choose whether to receive your card as-is or RIP it! 

Personal box = all 4 cards are yours! Same offer here at VB: you can choose which cards to rip and which to ship.
