It’s getting close to that time of year when collectors, dealers, and friends get together to celebrate the great hobby at the National Sports Collectors Convention. Topps has plenty in store for those attending the NSCC in Chicago this year from wrapper redemptions to Pack Wars.
Baseball fans look forward to the Topps wrapper redemption program every year at the NSCC. This year's cards will be themed as Bowman celebrates its 70th anniversary. The front of the cards feature a statistic that highlights the year in question, going back a decade at a time.
Similar to last year’s program, collectors can find special show-exclusive refractors only found at the 2017 National Sports Collectors Convention. The cards will utilize a prism foil pattern on chrome stock on the 2017 Bowman design. Eack pack will contain four exclusive NSCC cards.
Subjects include elite prospects, top stars, retired greats and more. Collectors can expect to find rookie sensations Aaron Judge and Cody Bellinger, as well as retired stars such as Derek Jeter and Sandy Koufax.
The 50-card checklist will also feature a limited number of autographed cards, and low-numbered parallels including, but not limited, to Gold Refractors numbered to 50, and a Black Refractors numbered to 1-of-1.
Collectors can get the wrapper redemption packs at the Topps booth by opening select hobby boxes in front of a Topps employee. Get a limited amount of four-card packs for select hobby box opened at the Topps booth (see chart below ... LIMIT 16 BOXES PER TRANSACTION). All Topps 2017 baseball hobby boxes are included in the program except Topps Opening Day, MLB Sticker Collection, and Topps Bunt. Collectors can also use 2017 Topps UFC Knockout, 2017 Topps MLS, and 2017 Topps WWE Undisputed hobby boxes as part of the wrapper redemption program.
