Call Your Shot Contest

Yesterday was a pretty good day for me. I was busy at work which is always good. I received a cool gift from my brother-in-law (will make a post about that later), had my new sweatshirt in the mail along with a couple of cards waiting for me when I got home also. The one card I received in the mail was from the contest Babe Ruth's Call Your Shot game. In this year Topps Series 1, they would have scratch off cards with a chance to win an autograph, autograph relic, or an entry to win a grand prize. I stuck to my game plan and just scratch off the autograph relics on about the ten cards I had pulled. I did get lucky and won on one card.

After redeeming the code it gave a list of potential players that you could receive in the mail. I was pretty happy with the list that was shown and even more happy when I ripped open this beauty of a card. I pulled a 2013 Topps Triple Threads of Atlanta Braves all star first basemen, Freddie Freeman. I love that the relic is part of a baseball bat and the autograph is on card instead of a sticker. Jersey relics are more common, I believe then baseball bats relics and the on card autograph is always a better deal then a sticker. Needless to say I am really impressed with what I received from Topps and even more impressed how fast this card came. I knew they wouldn't start to ship until the end of March and I received it yesterday (4/6), which anyone who has redeemed a card with Topps will agree that came quick.
