Set Type: Redemption
Card dimensions: 2½” x 3½”
Parallels: Gold, serial numbered to 99 on front of card; 14K Gold Embedded, serial numbered “1/1”
Additional Information: Cards were distributed via the Golden Giveaway Code Cards distributed in packs of 2012 Topps. As the name implies, the 14K Gold Embedded parallels contain 14K gold leafing in the card.
When the marketing material for the set initially appeared, Thome was shown in an Indians uniform and designated as one on his card. However, when Topps started mailing the cards out, they edited the card to depict and designate him as a Phillie.
