I literally don't believe it's possible to send out 10,000 packs in one day. In fact, I don't think sending 1,000 is very realistic. That said, Topps usually doesn't ship out themselves - they have a shipping company send things out.

This is not actually true. I sent in packs the same day as Houdini, and they arrived the same day, roughly the same time, I'm sure, and he has received his, while I have not received mine. The only rhyme or reason I can fathom is some kind of zoning or blocking system whereby they do streets that begin with A-D first, or cities the same way..honestly, I don't really know, but I'm quite sure there is no conspiracy afoot.

PS - we really did land of the moon.
