The Archdiocese of Chicago Catholics Schools posted photos of the signing to Facebook on Monday. The post states that Topps is paying Sobieck $1,000 for her new collectible, which will be donated to the nun’s namesake scholarship fund for her school’s students.
Sobieck rose to viral fame in August when she threw out a perfect pitch at a Chicago White Sox game in August.
The nun told the Tribune that after seeing her stunning throw, Topps contacted her about a baseball card of her own. Sobieck said the fact that her face is on such an item “is so out there.”
“As a kid and athlete growing up, you always went to the store and bought the baseball cards and bubblegum,” she said.
