According to, the set, titled 2015 Topps Series 1, is a “15-card set of ceremonial first pitches,” and is being released to honor those who threw the first pitches at MLB games in 2014.

50 Cent’s now infamous pitch — which was later coined “the worst ever” by an unscientific report conducted by the Washington Post — took place before the game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the New York Mets on May 27 of last year.

Meanwhile, Biz Markie, perhaps best known for his 1989 record “Just A Friend,” threw the first pitch at the game between the Houston Astros and Oakland Athletics on July 23.


Others performers to receive an honoree card include Academy Award-winning actor Jeff Bridges, as well as Jack White of the rock band The White Stripes, and Seattle’s rap new comer, Macklemore and others.

2015 Topps Series 1 are slated to be available on February 6.
