If you missed them last time, you have another shot.
Topps announced on Friday that there will be a Bowman Chrome Blue Wave Refractor wrapper redemption program in place when 2012 Bowman Chrome arrives later this month.
Every collector who sends in 36 Bowman Chrome wrappers (hobby or retail) will receive in return a five-card pack of the parallel cards.
The Blue Wave set will include 110 players with autographs from those players randomly inserted into the packs, which will be limited to just 10,000 in total.
Unlike the 2012 Bowman wrapper redemption, this one will have a five-pack limit per household and packages can not be postmarked before Oct. 17, the release date for the product.The last time around, the stock was depleted within days as there were no limits and collectors who received boxes early mailed their wrappers in early.
Mail wrappers to:
P.O. Box 2008
Duryea, Pa. 18642
