Default Topps Redemption

My 7 year old son and I pulled our first redemption card yesterday. It is an Eric Hosmer Gypsy Queen auto. (We pulled a Bowman Chrome Nick Castellanos too) We were pumped. Any suggestions on the process. If we were going to sell would we be further along to sell the redemption card? Just looking sfor some direction. Thanks in advance for anyone's advice.

You will always get more money for a live card than a redemption. It doesn't look like it's been made yet which means you could be waiting a while. The good news is Topps gets many of the cards signed during Spring Training when they can hit most of the teams in a small radius.

Bottom line, be prepared to wait. If you accept a replacement after four months of waiting, you will probably be disappointed, knowing Topps.

Congratulations on the nice card

you enter the codes online, wait a long time, call topps customer service and wait on hold, get really mad and break something, then you get on a forum and complain.
