Thanks for the heads up. I went ahead and bought his Polanco Red Wave /25 for $30!

None today in PA again.

Takes a lot for me to get mad at Topps, but the combination of it taking a month to send out all of these packs and them taking almost 2 and a half months now to send FB Gametime diecuts is really starting to piss me off.

What really gets me with these is a "select few" received theirs, made a killing selling them, and everyone else is sitting on their thumbs just waiting. I don't understand why staggering the shipment was needed.

Yea that was odd to send them out to a small sample. Doesn't make much sense ...

Tuesday in CT / Nada.

the weirdest thing to me is that it seems that they specifically DID NOT send out to the people who sent theirs in first and the people who clearly bought the most product, almost all those that posted they received said they got 1 or two packs

well a few things, first remember guys the reason there was such a lag was the storm, many people are still without power and at the least most places were closed a while. that being said my wrappers arriving the day after released should have gotten me packs before most... oh well, still excited for them to show up!

I literally don't believe it's possible to send out 10,000 packs in one day. In fact, I don't think sending 1,000 is very realistic. That said, Topps usually doesn't ship out themselves - they have a shipping company send things out.

This is not actually true. I sent in packs the same day as Houdini, and they arrived the same day, roughly the same time, I'm sure, and he has received his, while I have not received mine. The only rhyme or reason I can fathom is some kind of zoning or blocking system whereby they do streets that begin with A-D first, or cities the same way..honestly, I don't really know, but I'm quite sure there is no conspiracy afoot.

PS - we really did land of the moon.

i'm not imposing there is, just find it a little odd they wouldn't have processed the first ones first, but as long as they got them all checked in and accounted for to meet the 10,000 count it makes sense that the distribution could have NOTHING to do with the reception

Didn't get mine yet in NJ, I didn't read the entire thread so sorry if this is a repeat question but does anyone have he numer to check and see if I should expect my packs? I should be getting 5 and I sent 1 from my moms name and address. That was exactly one case worth of packs and I sent them out the fri or sat after they were released. By reading a few posts I'm not that worried but I'd still like to know if I'll be getting them.

Mine arrived today in Southern CA. Wrappers received by Topps two days after release. Cards are beautiful, didn't get much of excitement other than a Hellweg auto which is damaged. Hopefully Topps will exchange it.
