Fans voted Kris Bryant the 2017 No. 1 Topps Baseball Series 1 card

We get the sense that Kris Bryant has been enjoying his life recently. He was the 2016 NL MVP, he just got married, and oh, he fielded the final out of Game 7 of the World Series, which you may remember as the game that broke the Cubs' 108-year title drought.


And that's not all -- he's also Card No. 1 in the 2017 Topps Baseball Series 1. 

"The first time I saw myself on a card, I think I was in the Fall League," Bryant told reporters during a Topps launch event at MLB Network on Wednesday. "I was so excited. I grew up looking at baseball cards, and it's really cool to have your own. ... I certainly have been very humbled by it."

Here's Bryant on how to keep the next generation of fans involved with the game:

Of course, even though things seem to be at peak wonderfulness for Young Blue Eyes right now (does anyone call him that yet? Should we start?), he would enjoy a day in another player's cleats. "I think anybody playing the game would love to be Mike Trout," said Bryant. "He makes it look so easy. Just what he does on the field is out of this world. He'd be a good one to switch with for a day … or for a career."

And if you pick up a pack of Topps cards, you could get Bryant, Trout, maybe a celebrity first pitch, or even … well, just click below to find out:

OK, OK, no pack of cards will be ­entirely Kevin Millars. You may find other MLB Network personalities, or you may get a blast from the past. Topps is also including cards from the past 66 years, so you might stumble upon something like this:


It's unlikely you'll find a million-dollar Mickey Mantle, though.
