If you pulled a “Mystery Redemption” autograph card from 2019 Topps Series 1, Heritage, Inception or Gypsy Queen, the mystery has been solved. At least one of them, anyway.
Each redemption card was labeled “A” or “B.” Topps has announced that those with a Player B redemption will be receiving a card signed by Chicago White Sox rookie Eloy Jimenez. The name of Mystery Player A will be revealed at a later date.
Jimenez will also have live Bowman Prospect Autographs inside 2019 Bowman baseball, due out April 17.
Sister Mary Jo Sobieck is getting her own baseball card.
The teacher from Marian Catholic High School in Chicago became a viral sensation last year when she threw out the first pitch during a White Sox game last year, bouncing the ball off her bicep and firing a strike to home plate.
Now, Topps will put her in its Allen & Ginter set, due out in July.
Lauren Frost of WBEZ Radio in Chicago caught up with the very athletic Sister Mary Jo and Susan Lulgjuraj of Topps for this story.
Terrell Owens didn’t pay the bill for his storage unit and now some of his old equipment, play books, autographs and other items has been sold at auction.
TMZ reports that Owens didn’t find out it was being sold until it was too late and talked with the new owner of the items.
