Topps announced the sweepstakes prior to the release of 2013 Topps Series 1. The contest promised each Chase Ticket holder a bat autographed by five current or retired players. In addition, one ticket holder would receive the Ultimate Chase, a pair of tickets to every playoff game from a team of their choice. With one of the ten tickets redeemed, Alan and Zach pondered the possibilities for the autographed bat and waited patiently for September 1st, the day of the drawing for the Ultimate Chase.
“I thought it was a prank,” Alan said. “The drawing was supposed to be on the first (of September) and I didn’t hear anything, but when I got a voicemail at 7 a.m. PST I knew it was real." After some phone tag, Alan and Zach were in touch with Topps and were asked to select their team. Being less than 30 minutes from the stadium, choosing the Los Angeles Dodgers was easy.
The father/son duo has had a hot hand at Wax Czar (Mike Trout Finest Superfractor, Stephen Strasburg Topps Chrome Red Refractor autograph RC...) and while it isn't playoff tickets another customer found another rare Topps redemption in 2013 Topps Series 2.
The Dodgers' magic number is 2. Enjoy the playoff run Alan and Zach!
