Topps Million Card Give Away Tell Your Story

In 2010 Topps Series 1 there are Topps Million Card Give Away cards that have a code that you can redeem online at http://www.toppsmillion.com/ to get a card that was possibly thrown out by your mother.  

In my case it was my father who threw out the cards.   He was moving and I was in my early 20s.  I had at least 50 each of Mantle, Mays and Aaron as well as other stars of the time period.  I could not get out of work that day and I asked him to take them to his new apartment and I would retrieve them over the weekend.  He said, No Problem!  Well, it must have been a problem because when I arrived at his new apartment over the weekend they weren't there and I no longer had the cards that I had cherished.  They were lost forever.  In my case it was my father Who Threw Out My Cards!

Do you have a story of your cards being thrown out?

  1. In my case my mother told me to keep the cards.For years I was taking them from place to place in a brown paper bag.
    One day a friend of mine had a Beckett price guide.He showed me the prices,then we went through my cards and pulled out the good ones.
    I've been buying cards ever since,I love it.
