Here are the first three I got:
Time for 6 more. I'm going to keep three codes in my back pocket for later redeeming. I don't want to end up signing up for Toppstown just because I went on a redeeming bender and had no other codes to redeem. Predictions were originally posted here. Code redeeming starts at 9:15 EST.
TMC-2 1978 Topps Gary Carter
Prediction: 1988 Checklist 397-528 (Shawn Hillegas version)
Actual: 1988 Ellis Burks
I got the year right!
TMC-3 1963 Topps Bob Gibson
Prediction: 1990 Traded Dave Parker
Actual: 2003 Hideki Irabu
Oh... Oh God... The pain..... Took me three tries to get this too...
Oh well, I knew the risks coming into this. Onward and upward!
TMC-5 1969 Mickey Mantle
Prediction: 1989 Topps Terry McGriff
Actual: 1976 Leron Lee
Awww yeah. '70s goodness. It's a double though (called it!) So Night Owl has a chance to trade me something for it. Oh wait, no he doesn't. Poor, poor Night Owl.
TMC-7 1963 Topps Roger Maris
Prediction: 1994 Matt Farmer draft pick
Actual: 1982 Lou Piniella
Yankee gets a Yankee. It's a big name at least.
TMC-8 1974 Topps Thurman Munson
Prediction: 1993 Mike Perez
Actual: 2005 Brian Jordan
Yeah! A Brave! Kickass! Ok, one more for tonight...
TMC-9 1985 Mike Schmidt
Prediction: 1979 Topps Bobby Castillo RC
Actual: 2001 Wendell Magee Jr.
Oof. That's a tough one to end the night on. Anyone want to see one more?
Ok, I had to do one more in honor of the fact that a trading partner e-mailed me to let me know that one of his code cards netted him the legendary 1987 Bip Roberts. I should be so lucky.
Gary Carter card
Prediction: 1980 Lee Mazilli
Actual: 1987 George Brett
Not bad, I was hoping for something a little more moldy however. Check out this blog list from the sidebar:
Looks like Topps was the big winner today, eh?
