WINNER OF A GRIFFEY JR. AUTOGRAPH FROM '12 TOPPS GOLDEN GIVEAWAY!

After last years 2012 Topps Golden Giveaway yielded just two cards, I had a unexpected email from Topps yesterday.  I was one of 20 who won the 2012 Topps Ken Griffey Jr. Golden Giveaway Autographs!  Here it is almost a year later and of the millions of entered codes, I was selected!  Of course I have no picture, but will post once I get it!  Being my first and only Griffey Jr. auto, this card is going to be a great addition to my collection.  (Unless Junior Junkie really gives me an offer I can't refuse!)  What I found online odds of winning this was 1:188,000.


This year I entered my codes, but not once have I played the game.  Maybe next year I may need to think twice.  So I guess this is proof that there are really winners in these games!

    1. I thought it was a scam first...I even waited for an hour with Topps. It was legit!

  5. Was the email from Mstephens@topps.com? I just got an email saying they tried to deliver my Griffey to my old address and could not, I moved in January...I too thought it might be a scam but I have nothing to lose and sent them the new addy!
