If the idea of watching Aaron Judge or Giancarlo Stanton launching tape measure home runs in person excites you, then a promotion announced Wednesday by Topps will be in your wheelhouse.
Stanton won last year’s Home Run Derby by smashing a record 61 homers — including 20 in the finals — at Petco Park in San Diego. One of his shots traveled 497 feet. Judge, New York’s right fielder, connected for a 495-foot blast on June 11 at Yankee Stadium.
To enter this year’s contest, fans should do this:
- 1. Post a picture of yourself opening a pack of 2017 Topps Baseball Series 2 on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. Topps Series 2 baseball cards hit hobby and retail shops on Wednesday.
- You must tag @topps in your social media post.
- You must use the hashtag #RediscoverTopps
The contest runs from June 14 through June 25. A picture must be posted by 11:59 p.m. Pacific time on June 25, Topps officials said. Winners will be contacted the following day.

The 88th All-Star Game will be played on July 12 in Miami.
