Default Retail Bowman 2013 wrapper redemption help

Does anyone know if the rack pack/hanger packs count as TWO packs or just one pack towards the wrapper redemption? Can you mix and match rack packs and regular single packs as long as it's all retail? Thanks in advance.

I think the wrapper redemption is Hobby exclusive.

I know it's 36 regular retail packs, but I don't know about racks.

It may be too late, but you never know.

The wrapper redemption is not only hobby, it's retail too.

@toppscards: More Bowman blue waves. Just beautiful. Some of these packs will have autos! If you buy retail, turn in 36 wrappers

@toppscards: For Bowman wrapper redemption-10 packs per hh. All wrappers Must be sent in together in 1 package. Program will run while supplies last

@toppscards: Also, any packages dated before the street date of May 8th will not be accepted. Mail to Bowman Blue Wave Redemption PO Box 2008 Duryea PA

@toppscards: @wolfpak999 welcome nick. You need to get either 24 paks of hobby, 10 hobby jumbos or 36 packs of retail

I am sure topps will tweet more info like they did for Topps series 1. They actually tweeted an estimate of when packs would run out.

I love it, you have to send in 50% more retail packs than with hobby.

24 Hobby Wrappers - $67 (Hobby box on Blowout)
36 Retail Wrappers - $108


I guess Topps doesn't care about the kids.

Like the kids are going to save their wrappers and mail them out to Topps? I doubt they'd even buy enough, due to the fact that half the players on the checklist are no-names to them.

(Not sure if you're serious...)

Wow wow wow, enough with the kids argument already. Kids don't collect cards! People on the internet think this is a booming hobby with youngsters running to walmart to buy cards. It's not the case...any kids that collect probably are doing it because their parent does. It's not 1992 anymore folks sorry to break it to you. This is an adult only "hobby" rip and flip, rip and flip, post my pulls on the message board and then straight to ebay. Kids need not apply.

I do wonder why Topps makes customers mail in more retail wrappers than hobby. It's not like people are buying retail because they have a choice. There aren't hobby shops everywhere. So first they get screwed with the retail odds for hits then they get hosed on the wrapper redemptions.

Well, if you are mailing in wrappers for redemption, one would assume that you can also get hobby mailed to you from places like blowoutcards.com.

It's only for a week anyway. After a week the promotion is effectively over. The vast majority of retail will be sold after the Blue Wave packs are gone.




As for the OP question, for the 2013 redemption program all retail SKUs counted as one pack.

No, no, I love it. Quote lowest online prices for hobby and then MSRP for retail. You can get a case of retail for $600. That's $50/box. That's 36 wrappers for $75. Cheaper Blue Wave pack than HTA.

So is it over already? I shipped it express today. Not happy to pay another $15 to mail after already spending $$$. Any updates by Topps as to the inventory?

No, it's not over but rule of thumb is a week to 10 days. It hasn't been a week yet. No one really knows until Topps says.
