Gimmick

A gimmick card of a New York Yankee fan was included into packs of Opening Day. Christian Lopez was the fan who caught the home run that accounted for Derek Jeter's 3000th career hit. He returned the ball to Jeter asking for nothing in return.

Shortly after Jeter's 3000th hit, Topps announced that Lopez would get a card in a future product, but made no prior announcements as to what that card would be. Lopez's card is done in the style of the 2011 Topps set.

It is unclear if Lopez was ever able to acquire a copy of his own card.
