Random Card of the Day

Year: 2000

Set: Topps - MVP Promotion (Rate)

Card: #197 Jeff Zimmerman


“ The future of all mankind depends on Jeff Zimmerman winning MVP Of The Week, as designated by Topps. I don't like our chances... ” -switzr1

“ Good scan...these were one per box in the NBA set so not really an easy set to put together. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ It's about time that a Topps MVP Promotion card gets some love! When are you going to finish the set, Jack? ” -Dave Sosidka

“ Cool card if you win the sweepstakes. ” -carthage44

“ Not a huge fan of the 2000 Topps to begin with don't get me started on the foil lettering. Not a fan of making a contest promo card look like a regular card of the set. Sample promo cards promoting the set OK yes make them look like a base card, but a promo for a give-away should look different. ” -captkirk42

“ This is one of the better looking redemption cards I have seen. Like the base design, like the carried over redemption design Definitely a far cry from the T-shirt offers of the late 80s ” -FuriousGeorge

“ I love MVP Promotion cards! I'm trying to collect every Baseball & Football MVP card ever issued. They're not easy to find as there were only 100 of each made, but it's the thrill of the hunt I enjoy. I have almost 85% of them. ” -Jack Webster

I love the 2000 Topps set.  It only occurred to me this year that it is reminiscent of the 1970 Topps set, which actually took some time to grow on me.  I really like both sets now.

Good looking card, except for that big ugly stamp. Not too keen on that back either, or the idea of what they had going on with it. Winners are probably hard to come by now.

I'd like to point out these are actually "NNO", there are no card numbers on them.

Someday my cards may double in value and then be worth half of what I paid for them.
