Lil Papi visits Texas … and wants you to win some Big League Minis from Topps

20papiride

By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz was a bit busy this weekend with a series against the Angels in Boston, but that didn’t stop his Big League Mini — aka Lil Papi — from visiting Dallas.

Why? Well, he wanted to try a road trip after the release of 2013 Topps Big League Minis — you know to get out of the house, err mylar wrapper, and see the world. Lil Papi is one of 28 big-leaguers who can be found in the new toy line from Topps and, well, he volunteered for a promotional tour.

As part of the tour, Topps decided it wants to get some Big League Minis into Beckett readers’ hands.

MinisBoxFor the most creative Big League Mini traveler and Beckett reader, we’ll offer up a special 1/1 prototype figure and a box of 20 — yep, 20 — unopened packs. For four other creative readers, we’ll give you each five unopened packs. Each $5 pack contains one figure. The prototype figure is a Jose Reyes variant with a black bat — the variant figure, as released did NOT have a black bat. See the figure by clicking here.

What do you have to do? You have to find a Big League Mini (borrow, buy, whatever) and out-do Lil Papi’s travels by recapping where your “Lil Star” has been, what he’s been up to or who he’s been hanging out with via a small series of photos or videos with the links provided in a single comment below before July 1. Links to photos hosted elsewhere are best. Be sure to include your name and email address in the proper fields.

See a recap of Lil Papi’s weekend visit … after the jump.
