I know this much, it is no longer available to purchase on BO and DA.
Brent and Becca twitter said it is being recalled.

Makes me wonder if stopping by the LCS on the way home for a box or two would be smart? The base, parallels, and relics may carry a premium with product off the shelves.

Edit: that would probably be stupid, $300 box for some short supply base and relics. No good.

So glad I am not involved in this mess. Between recall rumors, and selling on ebay, and returns, and everything else this is just a huge mess. Good luck to those involved.

Wow. I saw the autos, they sure did look bad. Wonder how topps will fix this, if they do.

Right but you made a typo while trying to make fun of the OP's typo. Not good.

That was 9 hours ago though, they are as quick with their "statements" as their redemptions.

"We have been made
aware that there was contaminated UV COATING on the cards that affected
95% of all BLUE INK AUTO CARDS causing smudges. That being said Topps is
presently working on a program to take
care of the situation and will let us distributors know within 24-48hrs
how the program will work to fairly rectify the situation.
So
please hold all of your sealed cases and sealed boxes and please
refrain from opening any additional product until further notice.
If you have opened some or even all of your cases/boxes please be
assured that TOPPS is working a program to accommodate the opened
product also, BUT please DO NOT OPEN ANY MORE BOXES/CASES until you hear soon."

Apparently a good portion of the autos have smeared, bubbled and just look crappy all together....Alot of the ones listed on Ebay have noticeable flaws.

I wouldn't be happy with that.

I wouldn't be happy with that.
Looks like Pederson's BC autos...

You'd think they'd catch this kind of thing during QC before packout...wow.

Knowing Panini does a QC gallery before pack out I have to ask why Topps has no QC team and to worry about this after release. No communication whatsoever between the group shipping out and the product manager.

These idiots can't do anything right on the micro level. Their grand strategies of milking every penny of profit are fine, but the actual delivery...

Remember all the damaged BC cards? Now this.

It's looking very likely that this happened after pack out. Blue ink lifted from the autos and there is remnants on the back of the base card right above it on many.

Yeah, just reading up about it now. Bad UV coating that didn't absorb/allow the ink to dry and then autos got smudged in-pack.

What a mess.

Even with people knowing about this yesterday I am baffled how some group breaks got filled and ran TODAY???? Cardsinfinity sent out the email late last night and broke today even stating before the case was opened that the cards would be bad, and people still bought spots. That to me is more shocking than the product flaws.

Brentandbecca addressed this on Twitter. Short version: cards looked good coming back and damage may have happened at third party pack out.
It's still on Topps to fix since they put their name on it
