I love it when you have redemptions still pending, yet the player has live autos in products released after the product you have a redemption for. What I enjoy even more is when they don't let you ask for who you would prefer in place of a redemption, that you are supposed to be guaranteed.

I've learned my lessons with redemptions. I have the following two out (not much compared to some of ya'll).

2012 Finest Green Refractor relic auto Will Middlebrooks
2012 Topps American Pie Andrew Zimmern relic auto

Ironically, I'll be 1000x more pissed if I don't get the Zimmern auto than the Middlebrooks haha

I've had a total of 6 redemptions that I've ever redeemed, the very first one being Cat Osterman from Ginter - took a year, but finally got it. The other 2 were from Bowman Chrome and got those quickly for some reason.

Then the last two above. I'm pretty sure I'm going to shy away from Redemptions from this point on. I've left, as many of you have as well, numerous emails/messages to Topps with no response.

Pretty damn sucky

That cracks me up. I've never had a bunch of one card like that. Will they ship them all together?

What kills me is the Edgar Martinez. I redeemed it in June, in October was told it was signed, just needed numbered. Since then, 5 star came out, and EM had on card autos in that product. Why is it almost February and I'm still waiting for them to stamp the #@#@#@#@ing thing?



As silly as it sounds, I've completely stopped buying wax to bust because of this. I'm paying Topps for their product because of their CHECKLIST, not to wait years for redemptions. I'll stick to buying singles for a while.

Numbering! Takes 4 months to number cards! Reading this thread makes me even angrier!

I've quit buying cards for a few months now. It's been liberating. I simply refuse to give my hard earned to a company who treats its customers as poorly as Topps does. I need my cash more than Topps.

They are also the only company I have ever seen who puts in redemptions for non auto jersey cards. I have yet to figure out why they cant make a jersey card before a product release.

waiting on 128 redemptions, all sports.

I just consider them lost, then when they show up sometime in 2017, I will be excited to get my A&G Guy Buford framed mini relic, worth well over $3...

2012 Topps Finest Auto Jumbo Relic Rookie Green Refractor of Will Middlebrooks
2011 Heritage Minor League Baseball Real One Autograph of Steve Lombardozzi

I really want that Lombardozzi auto since I have a PC of him. Not sure it'll ever happen, though.

My favorite part of the redemption website is when you redeem a code, and the description of the card is misspelled, i.e. my "2011 Linage Buster Posey - 1954 Autograph." Yep, that's "Lineage" misspelled and "1954" instead of 1952. Phew.

STOP COMPLAINING HERE AND START COMPLAINING ON TWITTER. No one from Topps will ever see these complaints, if all of you would go to Twitter and BOMBARD them with public complaints then maybe something would get done.

@toppscards
@toppssupport

Tweet to both of those

I Have 4 in and I have not received any of them. The oldest is from 2010 product but I got it in late 2011. Also it seems like Corey Seager does not sign anything since it seems he is a redemption in any Topps product and now seems to be the same in EEE Panini

Waiting for 2011 Bowman Platinum Matt Harvey. Asked them on Twitter months ago and they said they are trying weekly to get him to sign. And apparently Harvey doesn't even know he has cards waiting to be signed, so basically Topps are complete liars.

Interesting that you mention that. I bought a Russell sterling base code from someone and when I entered the code, it said I redeemed a refractor auto.

I thought I just got lucky.

The Russell codes are jacked. I redeemed a Refractor Auto of him and it came up as a Base auto. Tweeted Topps a couple weeks ago and they fixed it.
