Topps Wrapper Redemption for the National and Further Details From TriStar
Topps has announced their wrapper redemption program for the 2011 National and baseball rookie chasers should be delighted by the cards.
Five rookie cards that were not released in 2011 Topps Heritage Baseball can be redeemed by collectors by opening five packs of 2011 Topps or Bowman products at the Topps booth. We did confirm with Topps that the cards will be numbered separately from the regular base set. Only one card can be redeemed per day and each card is serial numbered to 299 copies so they will likely move quickly.
The five players are listed below along with the days they'll be handed out:
- Wednesday, August 3rd - Dustin Ackley, Seattle Mariners
- Thursday, August 4th - Dee Gordon, LA Dodgers
- Friday, August 5th - Mike Moustakas, KC Royals
- Saturday, August 6th - Michael Pineda, Seattle Mariners
- Sunday, August 7th - Zach Britton, Baltimore Orioles
Also, as we previously reported, TriStar has also announced that their VIP gift bag will contain seven random cards out of the ten-card OBAK set they're producing exclusively for the National. To get the final three cards and complete the set, collectors must purchase hobby packs of TriStar OBAK Baseball or 2011 TriStar TNA Signature Impact Wrestling and open them at the TriStar booth. Each pack will earn the collector one extra redemption card.
Finally, exclusive T212 Mini OBAK card sets will also be available at the TriStar booth. The cards are limited to 1,999 sets. More details will be available at the TriStar booth.
