Topps will roll out a 25-card 2013 Bowman Platinum Blue Foil Parallel Set (#’d to 500) at this year’s National Sports Collectors Convention. The redemption style promotion was very popular with collectors at last year’s show. The set will feature the hottest prospects and rookies with randomly inserted autograph cards of Byron Buxton, Carlos Correa, Taijuan Walker and more. There will also be Yasiel Puig autograph redemption cards.
Collectors opening one sealed hobby box of 2013 Bowman Platinum Baseball (in front of a Topps rep at the booth) can redeem the box for the exclusive set. This redemption will be limited to 100 sets per day and one set per person per day. The set will only be available at the National Sports Collectors Convention.
Topps has also created a special 8-card 2013 Wrapper redemption set that features the 1952 Bowman design from artist James Henry Smith. Collectors opening three packs of any 2013 Topps/Bowman hobby product (in front of a Topps rep at the booth) can redeem their wrappers for one of the following cards.
This redemption will be limited to 100 cards per subject per day and each subject is limited to one per person per day.
Once again, Topps will give collectors an opportunity to talk to company employees. The first 150 people to sign up at the Topps booth will be invited to a special Topps Meet & Greet where a question and answer period will be held. The event will take place Friday evening August 2 in Room 3 at the Rosemont convention center from 8pm-10pm.
