Gridiron stars to be featured in 2015 Topps Dynasty Baseball

 

The beautiful 2015 Topps® Dynasty® Baseball releases this week with a few surprises for baseball – and football – fans.

 

Dynasty features some of the greatest athletes, including three stars who are well known for playing football, but enjoyed their time on the diamond as well. Football stars John Elway, Dan Marino and Russell Wilson, all have autographed relic cards in 2015 Topps Dynasty Baseball.

 

John Elway appears in Dynasty as a New York Yankee. In 1981, the Yankees drafted him in the second round. Elway played in 42 minor league games with Oneonta of the New York Penn League and, as an outfielder, he hit .318 with four home runs, six doubles and three triples.

 

The Kansas City Royals drafted Dan Marino in 1979 with their the 21st-round pick. Marino was drafted as pitcher, but he didn’t stick with baseball. Instead, he went on to become one of best quarterbacks in NFL history.

 

In 2010, Super Bowl champion Russell Wilson was drafted in the fourth round by the Colorado Rockies. He played two seasons in Single-A baseball before going back to play college football. In 2013, the Texas Rangers picked him in the Rule 5 draft.

 

Baseball and football fans can find their autographed relic cards in 2015 Topps Dynasty Baseball, which comes out on Wednesday.
