Hello all! This is my first post here, I hope it's a good one.

Yesterday, I bought a box of the 2008 Topps JUMBO Series 2, hoping to get something nice. I mean, it was cheap, right? (Thanks Blowout!)

Box says 1 autograph and 2 relics per box, so I start ripping into the packs, digging to find some goodies. (I don't have scans right now, but I can put them if anyone wants to see them.) Obviously, I pulled a bunch of Topps Stars, Trading Card History, and the like, the stuff that you would expect in jumbo packs. Let's get to the story though.

First I pull a 2007 Highlights Aramis Ramirez GU card. Kinda neat, the pin stripe is on an angle, rather than straight down. Looks different from the usual.

Next I pull a 2008 Red Hot Rookie Redemption card. Thought to myself, nice, I'll check this out later.

Next I pulled a Jimmy Rollins Home Run Derby Contest Card, #'d to 999. Neat, but I know he wasn't in the derby. I'll probably hold onto it though since I'm a Phillies fan.

I pull through to another pack and pull another Red Hot Rookie Redemption card. Well huh, I still only have 1 relic and no Auto's yet, but redemption cards are always nice.

Finally! I hit an auto of Ryan Roberts (meh) from the 2007 Highlights insert set. Well, there is one auto and one relic...

I tore through the rest of the packs and felt like I got hosed by Topps. Oh well, it was only $10. Right?

Boy was I wrong. I went to Topps website to check out the redemption cards that I pulled. First redemption card that I pulled was for #1, an Auto'd Jay Bruce. Woohoo! I guess that makes up for the lack of a 2nd relic. That's not the end of the fun though! The 2nd RHR card I pulled was #17.

An Auto'd Evan Longoria.

Redemption cards for an Auto'd Bruce and an Auto'd Longoria in the same $10.00 box. I couldn't be more thrilled.

Sorry if I rambled for a bit. I'm beyond happy.

Mike

I haven't decided yet. I'm a big collector of RCs. Once I get the card in the mail (knowing Topps, it could be a while), I'll let you know

Guys I pulled only 1 relic card out of my box and it was a Delwyn Young jersey I don't know if I got hosed by Topps or not cause it states 1 auto and 2 relics per box. I did pull two red hot rookies (#8 and #19) along with the other assorted inserts. Is it worth contacting Topps to see if they'll give me anything for it? The box from Blowout was such a great deal I feel bad for complaining.

I do want to say thanks very much to Blowout for the deals they put up yesterday, that was amazing.

If you didn't get three hits total, why not?
I know it was an amazing deal, but that doesn't mean topps should get away with hosing you.
Go onto the customer service link on their homepage and search "missing".. the first thing it populates should tell you everything you need to know
Good Luck!
Zac

I was thinking the same. But after reading the original post in this thread, it sounds like his two red hot rookies were auto versions. Might mine be the same? But what if they are not and then since I've redeemed them can I still get anything from Topps for the shorts? What to do, what to do.

#8 and 19 are not auto'ed versions.
They are suppose to be inserted one per box as it is, topps just must have thrown an extra one in there by mistake.

How do you know which are auto'd and which are not?

Edit: I found the list on their website and Bruce is the only one listed as an auto. Think the OP said though that his one RHR redemption was for Longoria and it was auto'd.

Edit 2: After looking at returning the product to them for the shorts, their site says they only accept returns from current year product only.
