When I picked up my box of 2012 Topps Baseball Jumbos, I grabbed a single pack with the thought in mind that I would pick up a jumbo pack here and there to get myself up to the 14 wrappers needed for a redemption pack. I was pretty excited to find this card in the single pack.
There are 15 Gold Futures cards that come in autographed versions and each of these are numbered to 15. That’s just 225 cards across the whole production run of 2012 Topps. The stated odds are 1:8,875 jumbo packs or 1:148 jumbo cases. Case breaker extraordinaire Brentandbecca opened 60 cases and didn’t pull one of these autographs. (Although, I’m sure he doesn’t mind since he pulled one of the 14 Golden Tickets.)
Hosmer, Belt and Pineda are the big names to chase in this set, but Hellickson is no slouch having won the AL Rookie of the Year last season. The card is currently up on eBay with a three day auction and is the first one to be listed. Wish me luck!
