The Albert Pujols Rookie Card buyback redemptions found in packs of 2011 Topps Tribute aren’t just good for copies of Pujols’ Topps RCs.

They’re good for graded copies of Pujols’ Topps RCs that have been examined and slabbed by Beckett Grading Services.

The big one in the brand is the most sought-after modern day Rookie Card — the $4,000 2001 Bowman Chrome. In all, there will be 30 copies of three different Pujols 2001 autograph cards to be found via an autograph redemption card.

The redemptions will not say which card they are good for until the code is input online. A collector could land the Bowman Chrome or a 2001 Topps Finest autograph or a 2011 Topps Reserve autograph. The Reserve card sells for as much as $1,500, while the Finest card sells for $450.

The company did not disclose how many of each card will be made available or what grades the cards received.

    If you have that much money to spend on tribute then you might as well just save your cash and buy the 4000.00 card that you could get for 1000.00 to 800.00 depending on what card shop you own.
