Awesome stuff! I can honestly say I am not the least bit surprised though!

I am not in the know on this, what did you have to do to win? I remember seeing the little insert thing as a box topper in Bowman with Chrome (and instantly thought of you actually) but didn't look into it.

I had to construct an essay in which I talked about how I got into prospects and what I would bring to the table.

Do you do TTM or should I just drive down form where I live to have you sign it.

Maybe Topps will have you at the National signing auto's since it is in Chi-Town in 2013

Congrats Jay

Any interest in sharing the essay? I think it would be interesting to see what it took to become a winner. If not, understandable, I don't think I would want to share any essay's of mine haha.

Congrats Jaypers!

How was the interview process? Does it sound like something they are taking seriously?

They talked to me over the phone about the contents of my essay, what I thought of the White Sox farm system (the interviewer is a fan of theirs), which stats I think are most important, who am I higher on between Profar and Machado, and a couple more topics I can't recall.

Congrats.........I really don't know a lot about the contest so what exactly will you be doing for Topps in regards to being selected? Is it volunteer or a paid position?

Volunteer, although I did win a free box of each of their 2013 Bowman products as a prize.

I'll be advising them as to which names I'd like to see in future products, as well as Tweeting about them.

Way to go dude.

Don't be so sour on the White Sox system, Keenyn Walker is going to be a star.

Who said I was? I told them it was definitely a better system than at this time last year.

I'm very high on Erik Johnson, personally.

Hey, they could not have picked a better person for the job. Love all your threads I have read so far.

That being said I would like to see some Adam Brett Walker get a chrome card in 2013, maybe even an auto. Alex Meyer is someone else who needs a chrome card and or Auto.
