  • Overview

    Headquartered in New York, NY, The Topps Company is a leading creator and marketer of sports and entertainment products and distinctive confections. Topps’ North America Sports and Entertainment division produces trading cards, sticker album collections, and collectible games related to iconic global brands such as Major League Baseball, National Football League, Major League Soccer, Star Wars, English Premiere League, Bundesliga, UEFA Champions League, and World Wrestling Entertainment. The company has also expanded its portfolio of products to include digital trading cards. Topps Digital Apps produces, develops and operates mobile applications that give you access to an exclusive digital card collection at your fingertips that are sold via the Apple and Google app stores under the brand names BUNT, HUDDLE, KICK, and Star Wars Card Trader. Topps’ confectionery brands, which are marketed under its Bazooka Candy Brands division, include Bazooka bubble gum, Ring Pop, Push Pop, Baby Bottle Pop, and Juicy Drop Pop confectionery items.


    The Topps Company was founded in 1938 as Topps Chewing Gum, and in its early years produced a popular penny "Topps Gum" from a factory in Brooklyn, NY. After World War II, the company developed Bazooka Bubble Gum, and in 1950, added trading cards to its product line. Baseball cards appeared in 1951 and quickly became a vital part of pop culture, a tradition that continues to this day.


    Topps was acquired in October of 2007 by Madison Dearborn Partners, a private equity group, and The Tornante Company, an investment company owned by Michael Eisner, former CEO of Disney. Although headquartered in New York City, Topps maintains offices in nine countries including the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, India, Brazil and Argentina. The new ownership of the company has made significant infrastructure, business and cultural advancements.
