If you’re one of those people who loved to collect baseball cards as a kid, there’s something new being offered that might spark your interests to stock up once more.

Topps, arguably the biggest baseball card company in the business, is releasing special cards featuring some of your favorite rappers, including 50 Cent, Macklemore and Biz Markie. The hip-hop cards will be part of the ‘2015 Topps Series 1′ release and will feature celebrities who have thrown first pitches at a major league baseball game.

The most obvious choice for this selection is Mr. Curtis Jackson, who famously threw that horrible pitch at Shea Stadium before a Mets game last year. In June 2014, the ‘Thrift Shop’ creator also threw out the ceremonial first pitch during a Seattle Mariners’ game when they faced off against the New York Yankees.

Biz was chosen for one of the releases, even though he threw a first pitch for the Oakland A’s that didn’t even come close to the plate. It was almost as bad as Fif’s effort since the ball went pretty much in the same direction.

The cards will be available for purchase on Feb. 6. Other musicians selected include the White Stripes’ Jack White, Pearl Jams’ Eddie Veder and Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine.
