Ummm....wow. That is beyond ridiculous.

To the OP, congrats on your luck, that is one amazing case.

But. Wow. THREE in one case?? If I had invested in 3-5 cases (or more) I'd be a bit peeved that 15% of the print run was in one.

I agree with the above posts. Congrats to you, if it happened to any of us, we'd be thrilled. But realistically this is a HUGE mistake and fail by Topps for letting something like this happen. I was SO excited when GQ was coming out but after seeing our GB case and the fact that cases are eitehr loaded or dead is ridiculous.

Also not knocking the OP, congrats to you. I'm guessing this will be your best case ever or the story you use to 1 up someone else's best pull story. But topps fails again. Makes it hard for me to want to buy more of this product. Iv seen loaded cases before but wow. I'm really speachless.

Congrats that is so amazing... never forget this...

But just when i think topps can't be a bigger joke.... They out do themselves

Very unfair for everyone else... IMO

congrats on the hits! those are sweet cards for sure, but yes collation was wildly weird on this product...I have not experienced it before

there is another thread about the poor collation of the hits and autos in this product... I broke 30 cases and did not hit many sp autos or the hits I should have based on the odds (not that they are ever spot on, but this was the most obvious to me ever how far off)

after seeing this and seeing other pull multiple /3 buttons from 1 case, and multiple sp autos like harper, trout, mays autos in same case (I got 0 of those 3 guys as example in 30 cases), makes you think something funky surely occurred with the multiple reports

just very strange, and poor distribution IMO

Topps is one-upping the hot box concept to the hot case concept. Congrats man, those are awesome!

20 total and you get 3 of them??!! Awesome for you! Topps sucks and it seems like lots of people got ripped off thinking they had the chance of pulling a bat barrel card.

SO maybe that's where my big hit from my cases was. Best hit out of 3 cases for me was a Justin Upton Jersey Auto that I sold for 40

Topps has to have a better way to collate rare hits, they've shown they can do it before, it's not like its a new concept.

I agree but 3 cases is super small sample size, even my 30 is only 1% of the 2500 hobby cases, BUT in this case YES it was very messed up, this is not the first instance of these mega 1/1 /3 /5 /10 hits being pulled from single GQ case

Yea I know 3 cases is relatively small to the print, was just venting for a quick second

Freaking amazing. Congratulations on being on the receiving end of Topps' terrible distribution of the products' main hits. Situations like this are bound to turn off people who are already on the edge about this industry. Personally, I think that as long as Topps is the only company with the official license, it is going to continue to get lazy and not innovate or improve its products. After all, it really has no competition, and monopolies are never good for consumers...
