Default Does Topps honor unreadable redemption codes?

I was wondering what to do if I tried to redeem a redemption where I scratched part of the code off and is hard to reveal. Some of the characters are visible but I stopped just in case in made the whole code unreadable. What should I do and how do I avoid this next time?

You sell it and you won't have to deal with that again.

You can ship it to them and they will honor it

Until the buyer has the same problem and opens a claim and/or drops a neg bomb.

I don't know what's worse, that you believe it actually works that way, or that you're willing to knowingly do something grimy like that to a customer.

Mental note : never purchase anything from chlinko6yf8 on ebay.

If you knowingly sell a redemption card that is unreadable then you deserve the neg you will get.

Are you freaken kidding me,if the code is unscratched when you you sell it.
The buyer has a problem after scratched,what does that have to do with the seller.

I would call Topps.

I came home from vacation last year to find that my dog had grabbed a handful of cards from my desk while gone. He destroyed a number of 1972 commons. Luckily for me, there were only a few teeth marks in a JBJ redemption card.

After scratching, there were two digits that I couldn't make out. I called Topps and they supplied me with the unidentifiable characters.

The redemption is already scratched, but the underlying code is unreadable. I'm hoping you missed that part before you suggested that he sell it to someone else.

In my earlier post I said sell redemptions and you won't have to deal with stuff like unreadable codes.All you have to do is look at my feedback.

But even so if the code is unreadable the buyer has the right to file a SNAD and leave you bad feedback. You can say its their problem, but anything you sell on Ebay is ultimately the sellers problem for up to 45 days after it is sold.

Okay - it didn't read as "sell it before it's scratched and you won't have this problem."

I understand now.

Back in the day this is what I did and didnt have any issues with it. I may of called them and got a case number, but pretty sure I just sent it in with a note stating that once scratched I was unable to read the code.

That just means you haven't had a buyer with an issue yet. Should an issue arise, they can easily file a claim against you and they will win 10 out of 10 times.

The seller is always responsible for anything and everything they sell.

Even putting that aside, it's a pathetic move to pass along a known problem to a buyer and let them deal with the headache. Low class.

You need to read the whole thread.You also need to back to the football section where you spew nothing but hate and negative comments.

Links? Or would you rather just resort to name calling?

Most threads I see about this matter discuss the dangers of sending redemptions and what can happen. Just because you have been lucky so far does not mean it can't or won't

I personally have been forced to refund a redemption card that was redeemed by the buyer before they returned it and have a neg from the buyer for it. Neither Ebay or Topps would do anything about it. It was only 7.00 total, but the buyer got it, redeemed it and then claimed it was bent on an SNAD to get their refund. They sent back the redeemed scratched card.

I am agreeing with you on selling them, but you need to accept that selling them on Ebay is as risky as redeeming them, if not more so. I sell all of them I pull but I know the risks.
