Registered And Redeemed At Topps

I could have watched the Jersey Trilogy from Kevin Smith, in the time it took to register, then redeem four stinking cards. That is absolutely ridiculous!

Did I get any White Sox cards? No. Was I stuck with a bunch of junk wax? No. Was it worth the time and effort. Not really. Was it still cool? Yeah, kinda.

It's always a little cool turning insert cards magically into regular cards. Let's see how I fared after nearly six hours.

A picture featuring a 1963 Bob Gibson....

Magically turns into a 1987 Tony Gwynn!
Not an upgrade but a nice card of a Hall of Fame player.

A picture of a 2001 Ichiro...

Poof! Turns into a 2005 Mariano Rivera!
Not exactly an upgrade, but a great player in exchange for a great player!

A picture of a 1969 Mickey Mantle...

Shazaam! Turns into a 1971 Playoff card featuring Bob Tolan!
Vintage for vintage is something I can believe in!

A picture of a 1985 Mike Schmidt...

Kablooey! Turns into a 1966 Ralph Terry!
OK, I was fearing the worst, but I think I did pretty good. Not great, but pretty good. A Hall of Famer, a potential Hall of Famer and two vintage cards. Not too shabby!

Not bad! I would definitely trade you for the Ralph Terry but I don't have anything worthy yet.I just posted my first 4 cards.

You did pretty well.

At least you got some vintage. I have only redeemed one so far a 1989 George Brett.

You did really well as far as vintage and the quality of the non-vintage players.

Gwynn... I didn't get any Gwynns... Of course, I don't need another '87 Gwynn, but it would have been cool to type the code and... BLAMMO! Gwynn!

You got some cool cards. I have to admit it is really fun to see what everybody has received.
