Default Replacement turned Gerrit Cole into Jerry Rice

Hi,

I received the following card as a replacement for one of my 2012 Bowman Platinum Printing Plate Patch Auto Gerrit Cole 1/1.


2007 Topps Triple Threads White Whale Jerry Rice



Let me know what you guys think .

Thanks.

Amichai

I don't know who Gerritt Cole is, but I know that Jerry Rice is the best to ever catch the ball.

I think you did amazing Amichai!

Email me your mailing address. I've got some cards for you.

Well you got a 1/1 of the greatest WR to ever play for a baseball prospect who might turn into nothing. I'd say you did pretty well, congrats.

Stupid Topps and their inconsistent replacements. Was this their first attempt to replace the Cole, or did you try multiple times?

I am really steamed at Topps for this replacement, no problem with the OP and glad he got a sweet card. But this card should have been placed into packs and not kept on the shelf by Topps. As a customer that has bought in the 10's of thousands of product from them on a yearly basis, I am very upset. We bust boxes in the hopes of getting these types of cards, not for them to be distributed as replacements.

I waited for this one to be replaced and then asked a replacement for the second one, so hopefully they will be consistent .

Thanks guys.

In my defense, I got screwed by Topps more than once the last few years so I am happy they finally did something nice in return .

The only thing i can say was this Rice a redemption that someone decided not to wait for? Or did topps decide not to pack out. The Cole might still be made and used as a replacement.

Rice was probably that some one pulled it and sent it in for a replacement and they saw nothing wrong with it, so sent it out to someone else. Happened to me once, got a card as a replacement and saw it sold on ebay a few months back.

oh yikes. Its a much cooler player right now but even as a Niners fan I'd rather have the Cole card as that definitely would outsell the Rice by a good margin

I feel dirty for wanting the Cole instead...
