Default Topps Heritage Minors- 1-day contract with the Corpus Christi Astros AA team and a RC

Considering how many people want to play for the Astros 47-115 team, I can't imagine how many would want to play for their AA team that supplies the stars.

Did you ever dream about being a professional baseball player? Topps can help make that dream come true..well at least for a day!

Topps is offering one lucky collector a chance to Make Their Pro Debut with the Corpus Christi Hooks (a Double A affiliate of the Houston Astros) at a game in 2013. You will spend a day with the team, get your own Jersey and equipment! In addition to this, you will have your own Baseball card in 2013 Topps Pro Debut!

Look for special Make Your Pro Debut insert cards in Topps Heritage Minor League, in Stores today!

You'd get an immediate contract with the real team.

It actually is an essay contest you have to mail why they should pick you or something.

Any idea on the odds of pulling an entry card?

The Hooks roster consists of future MLBers George Springer, Jonathan Singleton, Bobby Borchering, Asher Wojciechowski, and Robbie Grossman. While it may differ next season, it'd still be cool to hang out with those guys for a day.

That would be an awesome card to pull. It's nice that card companies are considering these type of event-like redemptions.
I believe the Leaf's Pete Rose product offered one lucky winner a batting practice session with Mr. Rose as your instructor.
Actually suiting up with a minor league team and doing some drills with them is cool enough...having your own baseball card mass-produced in the product is just icing on the cake
I wanna be a Corpus Christi "Hook-er"

The odds are 3:1 that Pete gives bad advice and just cries about not being in the HOF. After the session is over, you will then both proceed to the local casino to throw back a few beers and relax while doing a little gambling. All of this can be yours if you are the lucky winner.

I believe Nolan Ryan owns the squad, and part of the deal is that you get to hang out with him, too.

If you play for the Hooks, does that make you a Hooker?
