Default Just Got Notice of a UPS Package Coming From Topps...

Thing is, I didn't order anything from Topps. I don't have any outstanding redemptions or replacement requests, and I already placed and received my delivery order for my Diamond Giveaway stuff a few weeks ago. I haven't sent in any wrappers for the Gold Rush promo either. Any ideas what it is?

I am going to guess it's an error and will result in you receiving more cards from the Diamond Giveaway.

The package weighs just 0.10 LBS. Still can't figure out how a mistake like this happens (Assuming it is one)

It's nothing...it's like when they send you an email saying your redemption is overdue, but you already received it. I tried to play dumb when they sent me an email saying my Strasburg bowman chrome ref auto was overdue and will be shipping soon - two months after I got it. They immediately caught on and said it was an error in their system, and that this card was already processed, shipped, and closed. If it was an error, believe me they catch it.

Well the tracking information shows that the package just arrived at my nearest UPS warehouse.

I've gotten the same mistake emails before but the tracking info is real plus the package is a different weight than the one I got previously.

I took delivery on my diamond giveaway cards and received them in the mail fairly quickly. Then about a week later I received an e-mail from Topps saying they were on their way. So, sometimes they are very late in sending out e-mails for cards they've already shipped and you've received.

However, if UPS says it just arrived then I guess it's something different this time.

0.1 LBS suggests it's just one or two cards. Maybe I won the Bryce Harper Super via the NPN drawing? Sure I'd have to check into Witness Protection but still...lol

Guess we'll just have to wait and see and assume it's a screw up and that I'll have to send it back.

i never get anything UPS from topps, always USPS. so it could be something very very good... or just a promo item?

Like I said I didn't order anything, no outstanding requests. A no purchase necessary contest came to mind but I've never sent in for those either, plus I would guess that would be shipped via USPS.

I NEVER got an email from Topps, the delivery notification came from UPS (I have a MyUPS account), and it said the sender is "TOPPS".

If this helps any the package originated (or was at least scanned for the first time) from Newark, DE

All the ones I ordered for delivery with my factory set showed up, and the other 70 cards in my portfolio are still there.
