Barry Bonds Renews with Topps

Auto Date Friday, April 13th, 2007

In 2003 Barry Bonds become the only player in history to not sign the standard Players Association licensing agreement that allows the trading card companies to use a player in their different sets.

Bonds later signed an exclusive 2-year contract to appear in Topps trading card products.  That contract expired at the end of last season and until now Bonds has been missing from all 2007 baseball trading card products.

Topps has announced that they have now signed Bonds to a new contract for 2007 and he will appear in future Topps releases such as Topps Baseball Series 2.
