Default Great/Terribe 8 Box Case of 2013 Tribute

I love Topps Tribute, so decided to grab the last 8 box case my LCS had.

Big Hits:
Manny Machado Jumbo Jersey #/10
Jason Heyward Primetime Patches #/24
Buster Posey Auto #/31
Paul Goldschmidt Red Auto #/5 and the big one...

Joe Mauer Purple Tribute to the Stars Auto #1/1! My first non plate 1/1 that I've pulled.

You would think that's a pretty good case, but the problem is BOTH of the 4 box cases were missing a box! Nothing looked tampered with, but to be honest I wasn't looking because I have never had any reason to question anything.

Has this ever happened to anyone else? And what's the best way to handle the situation?

missing a box? you would think that the other boxes would rattle inside missing a whole box. best thing would be as long as you still have your receipt is to talk to your LCS. they should contact Topps for you. if not, you will have to contact them yourself and they should take care of you.

Did you open at LCS? Why did you open boxes once you saw 2 were missing?

I opened the master case, then sliced the inner cases and started pulling out a box from each case to pull the packs and put in the box for the pack mix up. I didn't even realize that I was shorted until I got to the bottom of the first inner case, and there wasn't another box at the bottom.

I doubt very much that my LCS did anything because Ive been going there for close to 15 years and he doesnt open any product, but I don't know the history of where the case came from. I'm inclined to blame Topps because that's always easy but with all the scammers and people finding ways cheat people in this hobby I don't know what to think.

Unless Topps is getting other complaints about missing boxes, I'm not so sure your story would hold without video evidence or your LCS witnessing it. At a few grand for a master case, I'd be sure to check for the cases being empty. Nice Mauer and good luck.

No doubt you got a little burned, but based on the breaks I have seen I am confident the purple and the red we're as good as it gets in there, and you wielded both of them in. To your point on abest and worst case, you nailed it!

Idk id notice this as I opened the case...almost like the guys who got scrub autos in 2013 bowman jumbo and claimed they were missing 4 out of a case... when I have witnessed 100 cases of Bowman and seen 1 missing auto

Never seen that or heard of cases missing boxes.
You can tell the shop owner or have him contact Topps if he gets the cases directly through them.

Sounds like the case was most likely tampered with. I busted a case of 2012 Draft earlier this year. All the packs had been resealed. Needless to say my LCS no longer deals with a distributor from Florida. Nothing you can really do. Hopefully your LCS doesn't deal with the distibutor anymore and is able to warn others.
