i don't think so. my last name starts with a "W" and i got two blue wave packs a couple weeks ago. still waiting for the other three. luckily i mailed my wrappers via USPS Priority on the day of release though.

I sent in 9 total sets of wrappers 2 days after release. 5 for me and 4 for a friend. Then I sent in 1 more set on Monday so my friend could get the full 5 packs. Topps tweeted that if you didn't have your packs in by Wednesday, you were most likely out of luck. I was told by the post office that package (which contained enough wrappers for one pack) was going to get there Thursday. I was thinking that one pack was screwed. To date, I still have not received my 5 packs (last name P) and my friend got the one pack that I thought wasn't going to make but not the other 4 packs (last name S). That last name thing has nothing to with their shipping method.

Got my 5 packs today in NJ, wasn't worth the wait lol. No auto's and two red waves not worth mentioning. Seems you do better with 1-2 packs as far as auto's go. I have one more pack going to my mom's, maybe that one will have an auto.

Seems like the later arrivals got put on top of the pile and were picked off the top for shipment leaving all of those that arrived before them screwed. Doesn't seem right, but is almost the only explanation.

My last set (total of 10 packs) arrived at the in laws today (Socal). I have harped many times how much of a beating I took on my case so it is only fair to give props now. The Blue Wave Soler auto I just pulled will put me in the black for my case. Woo hoo. Thank you Topps. I'm still missing two auto hits from my case but Topps assures me that this will be remedied. All in all I am pretty happy now. These cards look amazing.

Default Question on Blue Wave

I have 9 packs on ebay for sale and I keep getting asked have they been searched. Of course my answer is no because I don't even know how...
Why is this of concern if there is no sticker auto?

Because Topps is retarded and put the serial numbered card as the last card in the pack (you can feel the card through the pack). If my packs get here I want to test it to see how easy/hard it is.

Last card in pack is where the "hits" are (either Red or Auto).

This. I opened 15 packs. After the first 10 I figured it out very easy. Easily enough to know I had no autos in packs 11-15 either.

I finally received my packs today. So for those of you who sent them in on time, there is still hope.
Out of 5 packs I hit a Frazier Hall auto and 2 reds. They are Junior Lake and Taylor Siemiens.

I really don't get how you can't see that there's a difference.
