Collectors attending the National Sports Collectors Convention next week can pick up a free pack of NSCC-exclusive Bowman cards through the annual Topps redemption program at the show.
Collectors who buy 2019 boxes from a dealer at the show will be handed a sticker they can bring to the Topps booth and redeem for one of the specially-marked packs. Some products will be eligible for two packs (see below).
Each redemption pack holds four NSCC-branded Bowman cards (see checklist below). Some packs will yield autographed cards or refractors. There is a limit of 12 packs per person, per transaction. Only a limited number of packs will be available each day, spread across the show’s five-day run at the Stephens Convention Center.
On Wednesday, July 31, the redemption line will open at 5 PM. The line will open Thursday-Sunday at 11:30 AM.
