Fanatics and Topps 'Hobby Rip Night' Event with Michael Rubin, Tom Brady, Kevin Hart and Travis Scott

Tom Brady, Travis Scott, and Kevin Hart served as surprise guests at the Topps and Fanatics Rip Night in Linwood, New Jersey this weekend. Meanwhile, the trading card event was shocked to have such big-name guests. Furthermore, this caused the parking lot to become flooded with fans as the store only had a capacity of 100. Brady embraced the nature of the event, trading cards with fans and kids in attendance.

"This was incredible. Unreal. I did not expect the turnout. We were notified on short notice. We talked to the kids and got them involved. The smiles on these kids' faces. The experience of trading their own cards with an athlete and celebrity is an experience they'll probably never have again," store owner Jon Riffle told TMZ. Furthermore, Fanatics CEO Michael Rubin also attended the event.
