Default Here Comes Another Blue Wave!

Here Comes Another Blue Wave!



The hottest redemption program is back! Collectors who send in 36 Bowman Chrome Baseball (Hobby or Retail; mixing is allowed)

wrappers will receive a FREE 5-card cello pack of Exclusive Blue Wave Refractor parallel cards. There are 110 subjects to collect

in all. In addition, bonus autographed cards have been randomly inserted into packs, featuring hot prospects such as Jorge Soler,

Billy Hamilton, Ronald Guzman and Tyler Austin…just to name a few.



The exclusive wrapper redemption program will be limited to ONLY 10,000 cello packs, so in order to receive your packs, send in your wrappers quickly! There is a 5-pack limit for Blue Wave Refractors per household, which we encourage to be sent in one package. Any packages postmarked earlier

than October 17, 2012, the official street date, will not be accepted. If you abuse, you lose!



We will update the number of packs redeemed on Twitter (@toppscards), so follow us there…once 10,000 cello packs have been sent out, the program will conclude and we will be unable to fulfill any more.



Wrappers should be sent to: Bowman Blue, PO BOX 2008, Duryea, PA 18642

Instead of doing this garbage, why don't they just juice up the cases. Just more room for abuse.

There are people right now headed to the post office to buy a po box for a month lol finally justice from topps. They should have honored the first redemption since there are so many ticked off people about that...

Oh gee, I wonder if Topps knows EXACTLY which packs will have the autos in them? Better be prepared to send in enough wrappers for 10+ packs or else you most likely get all base packs. In the past, their own boxes were labeled "Autographs" if I recall correctly.

But if I put the same name on both...that shouldn't matter right since they go by address and not name?

So I have two corporations and two addresses, so theoretically I could get 30 packs LOL.

5 packs is sufficient.

Ah, did not know that. I still think it's so wrong for them to know exactly when and where autograph packs are being inserted. It should be completely random. Why does it matter to them anyway when this is a "Free" promotion?

I really wish someone would tweet them and ask them if they are going to label the box that the autograph packs are in again, like they did with 2012 Bowman. It would be very interesting to know what they say...if anything at all.

It boggles my mind how much bitching goes on about a freebie. They are giving free value to your break. If you don't get something, too bad.

Since Topps is not obligated to do this at all, and it is extra, I think it's great and looking forward to buying and selling some of these cards....

Thank you! I will be more than happy if I happen to find some of these in my mailbox. If not, what am I going to do?

it's limited to 5 packs max per address so you should be fine as long as you're one of the first 2k ppl.

Don't get me wrong, its great they run promotions. What is NOT great is how they handle them, their QC and pretty much everything else they do

Well when Topps lies about the date that they will honor the redemptions that can cause a problem.

That was the main problem.
