6 I believe? I think Jumbos are 1 auto and 2 relics? I could be wrong though so dont hold me to that.

My question would be do we hold of on Topps until later, since that price normally drops after a release, as well as being cheaper for the "off months" when we want to save?

Jumbo are better. I'm into this just for the Twins base/inserts. Besides that, there are generally more hits in jumbo. Hobby boxes just seem very similar to retail.

I say we preorder jumbo. The price has gone up after release for the past several years. The golden card codes will be a hit just like the giveaway codes the last couple years.

Jumbo would be the way to go. Typically more hits and/or better hits.

I would imagine we would just divide up the codes amongst the members? Or random them off?

Or just sell them off on ebay as a lot, and use that money for a future break.. Figure we would get about 60 codes (1 per pack in Jumbo * 10 packs * 6 boxes)... Would sell for at least $1 each...

Just a thought.. I would be willing to sell them off in an auction if wanted as I would get 20% off FVF as being at TRS... I would eat the ebay fee and just send the money via paypal for the winnings.

I know my kid would love to have some codes. I'd vote for dividing them up. Bowman Chrome and Topps are neck and neck, could go either way.

I haven't voted yet because I'm wondering how the code cards will be divided up.

Not a huge deal. Either way we decide to do it, we will all benefit equally. As long as we don't do a random for them. Depends on your gambling tolerence.

I'm for selling them, not sre how it would work out, but i don't really want a couple of code cards if we spread them out evenly.

Looks like 2012 Topps Series 1 has enough votes to win. PM will be sent to all regarding payment due date and silent draft.

We will be selling the code cards and adding the sales amount to the rollover money unless a majority of people voice disapproval of this.

Wrapper redemption

Quote:
Collectors sending in 50 HOBBY wrappers (or 14 HTA Jumbo wrappers) of 2012 Topps Baseball will receive a 5-card cello pack of exclusive GOLD RUSH cards (image attached). There are 50 cards to collect in all. In addition, bonus autographed cards have been randomly inserted into packs and feature the likes of Willie Mays, Adrian Gonzalez, Sandy Koufax, Nelson Cruz, Albert Pujols, Albert Belle and Dennis Eckersley…just to name a few.

The exclusive wrapper redemption program will be available only for the month of February. Packaged wrappers sent to Topps must be post marked no later than February 29th, 2012…so start ripping packs and send those wrappers in!
Sounds pretty cool
