I Struck Gold!

Topps Gold inserts have been around since 1992.  In 1993 Topps inserted Black Gold cards into packs.
Topps was not as lazy back then as they are now.  The Black Gold featured a different photo than the base or gold insert.  The first 22 cards which consisted on National League players were inserted in Series 1 packs.  The next 22 cards featuring American League players came in Series 2 packs. 

Collectors could also pull redemption cards that could be redeemed for various cards in the Black Gold set. 
Winner A was for cards 1-11

Winner C was for cards 23-33.  There was an error with some Winner C cards that pictured National League cards instead of American League cards.

Winner A/B cards were for cards 1-22.  I bought this card on COMC last week with the $5 I won from their Black Friday scratch off cards.  Their is a Winner A/B/C/D card good for the entire 44 card set, but that redemption card is a little too pricey for my liking.
