Topps has cashed in on the Florida Marlins’ early success by releasing the first card of Emilio “Boner” Bonifacio in his Marlins uniform through the eTopps website. They also have new cards of Jordan Schaffer, Mark Texeira, and Colby Rasmus.

Back in 2008, I pulled a Bonifacio autograph in SPx and gave it away in a contest, never expecting him to be a Marlins player. Today, the very same card is suddenly hot on the secondary market, selling as high as $30+. Someone was even insane enough to pay $100 dollars for his Upper Deck Premier autograph, numbered to just 10 copies.

The 2009 eTopps card has a print run of 699 copies and will run you six dollars. (link)
