I bet topps only opens it during certain hours and with my luck it will be while i am at the autograph area

For anyone going to the National, I highly recommend signing up for, and attending, the Topps Meet & Greet. I went two years ago in Baltimore, and they had free snacks, soda, AND BEER.

They also had some really good door prizes, such as high-end boxes, and a Stephen Strasburg autographed ball that I won.

Last time I went they had the Strasburg Heritage. They had set times when the line would start for them....I wonder if they are going to do the same thing for these sets to give people an equal chance...

Great! Another promotion Topps won't follow thru on. Still waiting on 4 (yes 4) Steven Strasburg autographed baseballs #d to /25, from 2011 Sterling. I hardly doubt they can pull off a Banquet & Dinner, and a meet and greet.

Went really good in Baltimore honestly 2 years ago. We got there late so we didnt get in the raffles, but thought it was really neat.

The Meet & Greet last year was HILARIOUS! Nothing but collectors just slamming them and their responses of "uh", "um", "duh" and "we feel that was the best course of action" was priceless.

Also recommend, just for free snacks and FREE BEER!

My father also won a Strasburg ball in 2010.

That's awesome. I was the first name that they pulled for a prize. This was when the Strasburg rookie hype was nuts, so it was a reall adrenaline rush to win. My hands were shaking.

I felt bad for the guy sitting next to me, because we both had the same first name (Gary). After they called my name for my prize, he told me that he thought he had won the Strasburg ball, since Gary isn't the most common name. I felt REALLY bad for him later, when ANOTHER guy named Gary won something, and it still wasn't him!

We went to the one in Chicago last year, not Baltimore

So they are only giving out 100 sets per day and it is limited to one set per person for the duration of the show. How will they monitor that?

Sorry if this is a dumb question but do you sign up for the meet and greet on thursday or can you sign up Wed night?
