Topps released information on a wrapper redemption program it is planning when 2012 Topps Baseball Series One goes live next week. The abridged version is that you’ll need to open a lot of packs in a short period of time to have a shot at completing the set.
The over-riding theme in 2012 Topps Baseball is “GOLD” with The Golden Giveaway, Golden Moments inserts, real Gold cards and more.
Collectors sending in 50 HOBBY wrappers (or 14 HTA Jumbo wrappers) will receive a 5-card cello pack of exclusive GOLD RUSH cards. There are 50 cards in the series.
In addition, bonus autographed cards have been randomly inserted into packs and feature the likes of Willie Mays, Adrian Gonzalez, Sandy Koufax, Nelson Cruz, Albert Pujols, Albert Belle and Dennis Eckersley among others.
The exclusive wrapper redemption program will be available only for the month of February. Packaged wrappers sent to Topps must be post marked no later than February 29.
