Topps Prepares Allen & Ginter Promo Cards For The ’14 National

Many collectors have sustained serious injuries while attempting to take part in the promotional programs put on by Topps during the National.  This year it won’t be any different.

Topps will have two wrapper redemption programs going on this year for the 2014 National Sports Collectors Convention in Cleveland.

The first wrapper redemption program is the one you’re going to have to fight for.  Collectors who open a box of 2014 Allen & Ginter at the Topps booth will receive one of two exclusive Allen & Ginter mini cards made just for the National.  These two cards will be of Jose Abreu and Masahiro Tanaka.  You cannot obtain these cards any other way.  Unless you buy them on the secondary market.  Collectors will be running to the Topps booth as soon as the doors open for these promos.

The second wrapper redemption program will be a little bit easier to take part in.  All you need to do is open three packs of any Topps product (excluding Opening Day and 2014 Topps Minis) at the Topps booth.  In return, you’ll receive a National exclusive mini card of Johnny Manziel, Jadeveon Clowney, Jim Brown, Jordan Cameron, Derek Jeter, Mike Trout, Bob Feller or Albert Belle.  This program will last much longer throughout the day and won’t run out so fast.

Only a specific amount of these cards will be given out each day.  So get them while supplies last.

Topps will also be hosting their usual meet-and-greet, holding contests and giveaways, plus selling all kinds of items at their booth.  2014 Topps Minis will make its return during the National too for only $50.00 per box.

Press Pass Readies VIP Set & Wrapper Redemption Program For The 2014 National

VIPs attending the 2014 National Sports Collectors Convention in Cleveland this year will find a 5-card set in their package thanks to Press Pass.  The set will include Dale Earnhardt, Jr, Danica Patrick, Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon, and Jimmie Johnson.

Collectors can also take part in Press Pass’s wrapper redemption program too.  In order to participate, all you need to do is purchase a hobby box of 2014 Press Pass NASCAR cards ON THE SHOW FLOOR (sounds like they might be using a voucher program like Upper Deck has done in the past).  In return, you’ll receive a single-card, blind-packaged pack that will contain either a special National exclusive Redline parallel #’ed to 5 or an autographed card.  All of this takes place at the Beckett booth.  That makes me wonder if Press Pass will even have a booth of their own.  I guess we’ll see.
