This afternoon Topps unveiled two wrapper redemption programs that they will hold at their booth this year during the 2012 National Sports Collectors Convention.

Bowman Platinum Box Redemption

Topps has created an exclusive 25-card sequentially numbered 2012 Bowman Platinum Blue Foil Parallel.  Collectors opening a full box of 2012 Bowman Platinum Baseball at the booth will receive the set.  The set will include Bryce Harper, Yu Darvish and more.  In addition, autographed versions of selected cards will be randomly inserted.

Gypsy Queen Wrapper Redemption

There is also a special 9-card 2012 Gypsy Queen Mini Card set featuring the hottest rookies in the NFL and MLB. Collectors opening 3 packs of any 2012 Topps/Bowman MLB or NFL products can redeem their wrappers for one of nine NFL/MLB Rookies.  The subjects are:

  • Bryce Harper
  • Yu Darvish
  • Yoenis Cespedes
  • Andrew Luck
  • Robert Griffin III
  • Ryan Tannehill
  • Trent Richardson
  • Michael Floyd
  • Justin Blackmon

Set collectors go nuts over the Topps promos they giveaway during the National.  Probably because the promos are part of popular Topps sets.  I almost got killed two years ago trying to get my Strasburg Topps Heritage promo.
