Redemption Card - Kyle Schwarber 2016 Topps Archives Baseball Fan Favorite FFA-KS

Earlier this month in my review of the 2016 Topps Archives I mentioned I pulled a redemption card.  The Kyle Schwarber fan favorite autograph card came in today.  So in all I think it only took about 3-4 weeks for it to arrive.  That is much better than I had expected.  It is a nice looking card with an on card autograph.  The 1990 Topps design isn't a big favorite of mine but I don't care.  I'm just stoked to grab my first redemption card and only my second autograph ever.     
Now what do I do with it?  Seems like a dumb question but I'm really perplexed.  I'm not a Cubs fan and while Schwarber isn't a player I have a ton of interest in, he could be an up and coming player.  Do I keep it?  Trade it?  Sell it?  Completed auctions on Ebay have it going for $29 and up.  I've never been in this for the money and selling it seems like I'm betraying it if I sell it.  Sounds weird I know.  Still cash is cash which can lead to more cards.  We'll see.  I'll probably make my decision soon.  There are worse things to have to ponder and no matter what I decide it won't diminish the excitement of this pretty cool card.  Thanks Topps!


  1. I pulled a redemption card for the blue bordered version of this card. I'll probably hang onto it... but that's only b/c I'm a huge fan of the on-card autographs from this product.

    1. Nice pull. The blue bordered are much harder to pull.
