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!
I thought it was a scam first...I even waited for an hour with Topps. It was legit!Delete
I'm going to peruse your want list, arrange a proposal, and get back to you.ReplyDelete
I've seen the scan on blow outs message boards, it's quite a nice looking card, congrats!ReplyDelete
Couldn't have happened to a more deserving guy!ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
