Strasburg's first RC - AKA the card I didn't win
Once he was out of the game, Topps announced that his first official rookie card - not the one that sold for a ridiculous price on eBay - was available on its Topps Million site. As of 11 a.m Monday, just 22 of them had been redeemed on the Topps Million site.
The picture of from the game last night.
None of them were me. I put in 11 codes - even though I had 12. One of the codes I tried to redeem set the code has been used already, which is pretty annoying because I pulled the card out of a jumbo box of Topps Series 2 last week.
Anyone out there get the Strasburg?
Amazingly none of these cards have appeared on eBay just yet (update - they are now, check the link). Not even as pre-sale where it says you will get the card once they have redeemed it.
UPDATE: One of these cards has found its way on to eBay and sold for $350! (auction link)
