you know what I was in 2 break that I got blue wave packs in both.. So now I am thinking I can't get more then 5 packs is what your saying right? I was not aware of this.. So does this mean that I will not get any blue wave packs now?

Yeah, if you used the same address, maybe even same name, you're probably screwed.

In all fairness, it shouldnt be other people's responsiblity to make sure YOU follow the rules.

Keep better track of which ones you won, its that simple.

I am over it now.. I was pissed for a second... I just didn't understand the rules I guess. I am not trying to put the blame on anyone else. I didn't even know what blue wave packs where until now.. people told me hey you won blue wave packs I was like Cool. I really had no clue what they were I didn't even know what the rules were. otherwise I would have obviously sold the other spot of blue wave packs. Oh Well

Thats a pretty ridiculous claim. Please tell me how they are going to connect usernames to names and addresses?

In some cases not possible. However, many twitter id's, Ebay id's etc it's quite obvious.

It doesn't matter how many id's they have. They still have to be able to link an address with the name and also confirm that the namw is in fact the same they have found posts for. Do you have any idea how many people in the phone book have my same name? And its not even a common name.

I agree with you that they have their ways. Topps has always answered me back on twitter so just think how they have a social media team to go around checking out everything,..

And if it is really true well then,

Topps team,

Please send me an awesome card in my one blue wave pack that I'm waiting for

Sincerely

Just got mine today here in Michigan! My one single pack Can't wait to open it. For anyone wondering, I shipped mine out the first Monday after release. Wednesday they said they were all redeemed. I didn't think I stood a chance at one.
