Again, the set will be distributed to the first 10,000 fans who go through the turnstiles before four specific games as follows:
  • Cards 1-20 will be given out on Fri. May 3 vs. Cincinnati Reds

  • Cards 41-60 will be given out on Fri. August 2 vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

I am really looking forward to seeing these and making the attempt either to get to the games or go on the Bay to get them. Thanks for the tip Tim.  I wonder if eBayer mediaguides is still around...

Sincerely,

You're welcome! So far these cards are the only ones I'm looking forward to getting in 2013.

That's how each year's cards should be done - by the team! Heck with Topps packs and getting a bunch of cards you don't want in the first place!
I wonder how much these will be on eBay for people who can't get to Wrigley for all 4 games.

Anthony Hughes said...

wait a minute... Trachsel, but no Jody Davis?? boo!

Having just moved to Chicago, I'm stoked!

I wonder if they'll do this for any other teams. seems like a no-brainer!

I wish they would make them available to the general public on Topps website or something.
I might be able to get to one game, but all 4 are out of the question. Snagging them on the Bay could be a pricey proposition!

I thought it was also pretty cool that Topps is including some pre-rookie cards in this set as well like the '82 Sandberg, '65 Holtzman, '72 Reuschel. Would have been nice to see a '60 Santo or '53 Banks, but I guess Topps can't get everything right! :)
