The Durham Bulls‘ history books include Chipper Jones, Evan Longoria, David Price and even the likes of Ebby Calvin “Nuke” LaLoosh and Crash Davis, but there’s another player you might know who could make their mark with the team this coming season.
Thanks to Topps and the Make Your Pro Debut contest found in packs of the recently released 2016 Topps Heritage Minor League baseball cards, it could be you. No, really.
This year, the contest includes scratch-off cards found in packs. For those whose codes let them advance in the contest, they will then be required to answer five questions. They will be judged on their creativity, clarity and originality of their replies.
The winner will sign a one-day contact with the Bulls, appear on a card in a future Topps MiLB product, go through all the rigors of being a minor leaguer, get all the gear and … maybe more.
Past winners have suited up for the Corpus Christi Hooks and the Aberdeen IronBirds.
