I predicted the future

On August 8, 2020, I predicted the future.

I know you're impressed. But I knew that on August 9, Ronald Acuna Jr. of the Atlanta Braves would hit a home run. I was so sure, that I entered a code into Topps HR Challenge. You know, those insert cards that come every few packs. I finally won!

This may be more of a blind squirrel finds a nut situation, but I'd rather believe that I am a clairvoyant. 

The fruits of my knowledge resulted in this fancy card. Shockingly, Topps doesn't charge for shipping when you correctly predict the future:
Ok, ok. So it looks like 172 people also predicted the future in August. Whatever. The card design is ok. Maybe a touch busy. It looks a bit like the 2020 Topps Utz product. 

The back of the card congratulates me on being a psychic.
Pretty cool that I can predict the future for Topps Home Run Challenge. I definitely won't show you all the times where I incorrectly predicted the future, that's for sure.


  1. That's a nice prize! Congrats on being clairvoyant lol.

  2. Congratulations! The design might not the greatest... but kudos to Topps for being creative. Reminds me of the You Crash the Game cards from the 90's.

  3. Congrats! That's pretty cool. I never actually knew what the homerun challenge prizes were. Cool to see a winner.

  4. Congrats! I played a lot of these in 2018 when Cutch was part of the prize cards. I correctly guessed 5 for 21 so by today's standards I guess I was the Aaron Judge of guessing, striking out a lot but when I connect its a homerun. BAZINGA!!!!

  5. It's clear to me that you are clairvoyant. I knew it all along. What a nice thing! Congrats.
