And don't forget its only money - if money was really that important would any of us buy cards?

Honestly, you know that would be more priceless than $500 bucks (and to be honest... eventually that $500 will end up as more cards anyway So mine as well be you on a card!)
BTW - Trade ya that Todd Helton Donruss Black Proof card you wanted a LONG LONG time ago for it. lol

Sign that thing and mail it in!!!
As far as WHERE the pic is taken,I'm sure Topps would want some sort of baseball activity in the backdrop. Similar to that promotion they just had "Pro for a day" or whatever where that lucky dude was a minor leaguer for a day.
My pic would have me with a hot dog and a beer sitting in the stands..MY usual baseball pose haha.
