1971 Topps Winner - Steven M. Wilke
 
2 Attachment(s)
Last Friday night, I learned what it feels like to see Bigfoot.

I bought a bunch of 1972-1975 Topps baseball cards from a guy I used to work with. He had bought the cards in packs as a kid and has had them ever since. They were in 3 ring binders and as I was going through the cards, there was a 1971 Topps Winner - Steven M. Wilke.

Has anyone seen another example? I believe it is the only one now known.
Does anyone know if this could have come from a pack?

I'm very excited, and very confused as to how this card ended up in my possession.

I've emailed Mr. All Things Topps Dave Hornish and I think he is as perplexed as I am. Any light anyone can shed would be much appreciated. See attached scans.

NOTES:

The 1971 Topps Winner baseball cards were part of a Topps Baseball Card Contest. To enter the contest you had to fill out an entry blank provided by the storekeeper. After filling out the entry blank with the information as seen on the back of the card (pictured above) Favorite teams, Players, Hobbies etc.. the form was to be mailed into Topps with a photo of your kid.

Twenty-five grand prize winners got their pictures on a "Real Baseball Card" and 1,000 contestants received a Full color Major League Card poster. The short print cards were inserted into a very limited number of 1972 baseball card packs. The 25 winners each received one sealed box of 1972 Topps baseball cards, with each wax pack having the winners card inserted into it. They also received 1,000 additional cards of themselves, to hand out to friends and family.

There are only 19 winner cards known of the 25 Grand Prize winners. The additional contest winners will be added to the checklist as they surface.

Steven seems to be on the checklist here:

I think the checklist is known to be a total of 19 cards. This is only because of an uncut sheet featuring the 19 examples that has recently surfaced. I don't know of anyone who has seen the Wilke, Scatena, Edgerly, or Cox cards in cut form.

What he said. If you decide to sell Mr. Wilke, please keep me in mind. :)

Oh, I see. Very interesting! Nice find!

Hmmmph, I'm surprised Al R. doesn't even have one. :)

I think the fix was in with the both Bole sisters being winners. :D

It would be interesting to know what became of all these kids. Has anyone ever done a "where are they now" type thing?
