2011 Topps Tim Lincecum Jersey #55/100

2011 Topps Series 1 Baseball always brings collectors out from a winter hibernation and gets them thinking about spring time again. Topps moved up the release date of 2011 Series 1 to February 2nd which was an added bonus to baseball fans.
Currently the most watched card from 2011 Topps Series 1 Baseball is this Tim Lincecum World Series Champions Jersey Card, serial numbered 55/100. Lincecum also wears #55 for the SF Giants. It is early, and there will be plenty more cool cards to hit auction from 2011 Topps, but it's fitting that the man who helped close out last season, has collectors full attention to begin the new year. Cheap jersey cards of Lincecum can be found for less then $10 online but because the chase is on for 2011 Topps cards, and it's #'erd to his actual jersey number, this card will sell for quite a premium.

Lincecum is a fan favorite in San Francisco and why wouldn't he be?  While attending the World Series Parade last year, one of the most popular items being purchased on the street were "Let Timmy Smoke" T-Shirts (pictured below). The reference is to Lincecum's arrest in Washington when he was found with Marijuana in his car after a traffic stop.

Watchers: 65 (Most Watched 2011 Topps Card)
Current Price: $28.29
Final Price: $200.00
Auction Ends: February 5th

  1. More specifically the shirts were in reference to Prop 19 to legalize weed.
