Topps 60th Anniversary Celebration…It Has Ring to It!

To celebrate its 60th Anniversary, Topps has teamed with legendary ring maker Jostens to produce this special limited commemorative piece. (see attached) This ring will not be made for sale and can be found via the following 60th Anniversary promotions.


Next week, 10 random Topps Home Team Advantage (HTA) stores will receive the ring within their special Diamond Anniversary Store Kits.


In every six packs of 2011 Topps Baseball, collectors will find a Diamond Anniversary Pin Code. Once unlocked, not only will they receive an original Topps card, a real diamond-embedded Topps card or special Diamond Die Cut card, but they’ll get a virtual shovel to dig for prizes. Collectors digging up all 60 unique virtual diamond rings will receive the actual Topps 60th Anniversary Ring.


As announced, the company will be giving away a ring to a lucky reader. Stay tuned to Beckett for more details.


Throughout 2011, Topps will announce more ways to find this special collectible hardware!
