Mason Ferrulli, a three-time Ependymoma brain and spine cancer survivor, is a great MLB and Aaron Judge fan. Last August, he went viral after discovering a 1-of-1 Topps Diamond Icons Aaron Judge card inside a pack of Topps trading cards. It’s impossible to overestimate the value of his reaction. Mason grew raised in the Bay Area, close to Judge’s childhood home.

The video moved Judge so much that he made plans to meet Mason when the Yankees visited the Oakland Athletics. Judge presented him with an autographed jersey and told him how much of an inspiration he was to not only Judge, but to so many others. He also autographed the one-of-a-kind Topps trading card.

Judge called Mason through FaceTime the day before yesterday to see how he was doing and surprise him with a set of bespoke Topps trading cards. Judge had arranged for a deck of Mason Ferrulli trading cards to be made and delivered to Mason’s family, who assisted him in opening them on camera.
