The highly anticipated 2012 Bowman set arrives next week packing Yu Darvish, Bryce Harper, Yoenis Cespedes and more inside its packs.
But what’s outside of the packs — or at least wrapping them — matters, too, as there’s a wrapper redemption for the product this year.
Topps detailed the particulars of the program on Wednesday, and it’s one that has a limited supply available — and a new form of Refractor is included, meaning they could disappear fast.
For each 24 hobby or seven HTA jumbo wrappers sent into Topps, collectors will receive a five-card pack of Blue Wave Refractors — some of which will be signed.
Some of the signers will include Josh Bell, Dante Bichette Jr., Gerrit Cole and Matt Purke — meanwhile there only will be 10,000 packs of the Blue Waves made.
Wrappers should be sent to:
P.O. Box 2008
Duryea, PA 18642
