Default Has anyone ever filled out a 3x5 for a chance at inserts?

Y'know, and been successful with it?

In case you don't know what I'm talking about, on the back of Topps products it states, "No purchase necessary. For a chance to obtain any of the cards listed above, at the same odds, while supplies last, hand print your name and complete address on a 3x5 card..." etc. Have any of you guys or gals been successful in receiving something from Topps by doing this? If so, share your spoils, I'd love to know.

Always wondered this myself. Can't believe they actually sent something. Probably worth a shot to try.

I've done a lot and never get anything good. Junk inserts from Topps and stuff like that.

This year I'm only sending them in for high-end sets

I did it a while ago with ud and got a Jim Brown #ed from masterpieces.

It's worth it for the price of a stamp

Yeah, think I'll do it for Museum Collection. Worth a shot, right?

Museum Collection and Topps Tribute are box definitely worthy of a stamp.

And try to stay away from ones like regular Topps, Bowman, and low end stuff like that....u wouldnt believe how many times I've checked the mail and thought "they wasted postage to send me THIS"? haha

I think its based on the math problem printed on the wrappers.

In the case of Museum Collection, you address it to "NPN 2012 TOPPS MUSEUM COLLECTION BB", so I'm guessing that's how it is sorted.

Each set has a different PO box to mail the request.

The addresses are on packs
