Several Fresno card shops will take part in Topps’ National Baseball Card Day on Saturday by giving away free packs to visitors.
The event, similar to Free Comic Book Day, will celebrate the collector community by circulating promotional items. The promotional packs will include six cards from a base set of 50 cards, which include star players and rookies.
Bases Loaded at 3225 W. Shaw Ave., Mossette’s Sports Cards at 1744 W. Bullard Ave. and Webster’s Sports Cards at 3215 E. Tulare Ave. will each participate in the event.
Bases Loaded owner Chris Gooboian said the first 100 customers to visit his store will receive a free pack. He also plans to give out other prizes throughout the day once he runs out of packs.
