Came home today and had 4 npn items in my mail. All four were from Topps and this ends a several month drought of no NPNs. Here are the cards I recieved:

Bonds Home Run History #184
2004 Orioles Team Card Gold #/2005
Robert Alomar Hit Parade Hits HIT3
Ken Griffey Jr Home Runs (HR) HR4

Just wanted to share, since it has been awhile since I received any.

That's cool! What product was this from? Did you get one package with 4 items for a single NPN or was this multiple NPNs?

I think they were all 2005 Topps baseball, but I can not figure out how I got 4. I know that the Jumbos, Hobby and Retail all have seperate NPN addresses, so getting 3 would make sense. Not sure how I got the fourth but I am not complaining.

They came 1 card per small manilla type envelope per bubble mailer envelope.

Yes, 2005 Topps was out in March/April somewhere in there and I am now getting the NPNs at the end of August. So based on that it took roughly 4 months. The good news is I received something. Some products you do not get anything. Fleer (wahhhh! so sad they are gone) was one of the best for getting NPNs and sometimes I got really good cards. Topps I generally get something but it is usually an insert card. A few years ago I got great stuff from Topps but recently most everything has been inserts. I did get a no-name bat on a Pristine redemption last year though. Something is always better than nothing but at the price of postage, I often wonder if these are worth doing anymore.

That's what has always kept me from getting too involved with the NPNs. Those stamps can add up quick. wink.gif

Yeah sometimes you get good stuff. I have not in a few years from Topps though. I remember one of my NPNs got me a Jimmy Smith football card auto, and another got me a nameplate jersey card of Ed Belfour 3 color patch.

Yeah those two covered postage for a while. I think the Smith booked $30 and the Belfour $40. I think the funnest part of this is waiting to see what comes, and I keep hoping it is something spectacular. It is a $0.37 grabbag, maybe I will have some good news to report later on.

I am surprised you are not able to send in NPNs where you are, but maybe your laws are different there.
