2012 Topps Golden Giveaway Golden Moments Online Exclusive Gold Parallel Die Cut

Year: 2012
Card Manufacturer: Topps
Card Set: Golden Giveaway Golden Moments Die Cut
Card Number: GMDC-42
Card Type: Parallel
Parallel: Gold
Card Attributes: Die-cut, serial numbered
Serial Number: 50/99

2012 marked the third year of Topps' online giveaways and code redemptions.  I don't remember a whole lot about the promotion, because I ended up selling all of my code cards because I live in Alaska and the contest was void in Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and just about everywhere else that wasn't the 48 contiguous United States.  However I do remember that you had the possibility of winning real cards.  It's a little confusing because that same year Topps also produced a Golden Moments insert card that ran through all three series. 

 There were three levels of cards, the base card, the gold version, featured here and numbered to 99, and a 24k Gold infused card numbered to 1.

A cool card when it came out and still a great card to look at.  Like usual the scan doesn't capture how shiny this card it.  The surface is also protected with a peel off film, you can kind of see it starting to peel away on the corners. The back is the same as the base card and the serial numbering is holofoil.
