2011 Topps Wrapper Redemption

This morning Topps announced that they will be doing a wrapper redemption program with the 2011 Topps hobby and jumbo wrappers.

Since we are doing a case break of 2011 Topps Series 1 Jumbo, we will be eligible to get 6 5 card packs. The cards in the pack we redeem will be randomized to the teams with no hits. For a list of teams still available please click on the link on the sidebar.

Here is the information from Topps:

TOPPS ANNOUNCES SERIES 1 WRAPPER REDEMPTION

To launch and celebrate the 60th Anniversary of Topps Baseball Cards, the company is pleased to announce a special Hobby-Exclusive Wrapper Redemption Program for 2011 Topps Baseball Series 1. (image attached)

  1. Wouldn't you be eligible for 6 packs (1 case, 6 boxes, 10 packs each?)

    Also, did anything ever happen with the wrapper redemptions from our Bowman Chrome case break? Were those cards going to be sold when they came in or distributed to the participants?

  2. Yeah! Another year the landfills won't see Topps wrappers.

  3. Makes me wonder how bad quality control will be this year if they are already announcing a wrapper redemption program, since it seems last year that's what they had to do to sell Chrome. Or maybe I'm just being too cynical and paranoid.

  5. LOL, Thanks Dan. I read your comment earlier when I was out and was like, "DUH!"

    I corrected the post.

    I am still waiting on the Chrome redemption's.... not that I am surprised by the wait, but nonetheless.
