What is the hottest baseball card – not featuring a baseball player – of 2012? It has to be this autographed Kate Upton Topps Allen & Ginter card that is being called her rookie card. Just last night one sold for $305. (Yes, this is a desperate Ms. Upton post, but you guys are infatuated, so why the hell not?) If you think that’s a high price, look at one one seller is now asking for the same card.
$589 – Buy It Now.
Obviously, this is the smartest marketing decision from Topps since slipping the Jerome Walton rookie card into the 1989 Traded set.
According to SportsCardBlog.net, the Allen & Ginter set is huge within the baseball card community.
A&G is a mix between baseball and pop culture. It leans on baseball side, but it also has many current and historical cards to pay homage to the original cards way back in the last 1800s. It is both an educational and fun product where you have no idea what you might get while opening each pack. While Topps has cut down on some of the non-baseball stuff, it should be packed with a little bit of both.
The cards just hit the market, hence Kate Upton autographed card rush you’re seeing on eBay.

A Pro-Anorexia website calls supermodel and Sports Illustrated cover girl Kate Upton a “Fatty.” Is that the proper way to talk about the girlfriend of Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander? The AL ASG starter might want to whip a 100 m.p.h. fastball at the head of (whoever or wherever that head may be) The Skinny Girl website which slams Kate for being fat, lazy, lardy and piggy...
A Sports Illustrated cover girl and an American League MVP, what could make a better couple?

According to people who keep a much closer watch on who athletes are dating than we do, Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander has been in a relationship with the same girl since college. But apparently that may have changed recently – or perhaps during the filming of a certain video game commercial – as the big news about arguably the best pitcher in baseball – who was shelled...
No, Ellen DeGeneres, Kate Upton is not dating Mark Sanchez. But she might be dating Justin Verlander.
Over the weekend, Upton was seen (drunk?) in Verlander’s suite at a Tigers game in Detroit. They were in that MLB 2k12 commercial together earlier in this year, after all. So, it might have been a case of a friend simply hooking up a friend.
But there’s more to this picture...

Justin Verlander has had the same girlfriend, Emily Yuen, since he was in college.
