In this image provided by The Topps Company, a 90 feet by 60 feet replica of a baseball card with Detroit Tigers baseball player Prince Fielder's image was unveiled during the announcement of the new 2013 Topps Baseball Series 1 cards in Lakeland, Fla. (Feb. 12, 2013) (Credit: AP)

Let's see someone try to stick this card in their bicycle spokes.

Topps on Tuesday unveiled the largest baseball card ever unveiled, in small part to celebrate the return of another baseball season and in larger part to buzz up the new 2013 Topps Baseball Series 1 cards.

Prince Fielder scored the likeness on the card that is nearly 90 feet tall and 60 feet wide, or just about the size of a regulation NBA court (94x50).

"It is truly an honor and a thrill for me to be featured not only on the 2013 Topps Series 1 box, but also on the largest baseball card the world has ever seen," said Fielder. "Baseball is back."

Good lord, could you imagine the size of the gum that would come in this pack of cards?
