Why not have him sign Chrome on Jan 30th when they had the signing??
Because the stack of cards they sent him months ago either got lost or never filled out.

I've got good Intel on the typical schedule around a release thanks to someone who used to work as a designer and product coordinator at Donruss & UD. The companies all work the same way and they all tend to hire from each other. This isn't new folks.

Now that folks have complained enough, now you're getting your cards.

Stack of cards they sent him?? I thought all Topps signings were witnessed by a Topps rep. Why would they send him cards?? Are you seriously taking up for Topps on this??

Well, thank goodness I didn't spend 2200 on it, but I am one of the 5 waiting on a red... and also a 1984.

This is totally disappointing. I don't even know what to say.

Yeah, the 800 (I think) count box of blank Chrome rookies sent to the player is rarely ever sent with a rep. Stevan Ridley tweeted pictures of his chrome rookies last year, I didn't see a picture of a rep or that he mentioned having one there with him.

It's a two way trust system.

I don't get it, screw collectors a few months before the worst draft year in history? They might be able to suck collectors into buying 2012 products because of the content and maybe even suck pissed off collector into buying also, but who is going to be rewarding these card companies with their hard earned dollars next year when the content sucks?
I guess they really do think we are mindless stupid walking zombies with wallets.

So are you saying that they didn't have time to re print these cards before there in person signing last week?? This is a crap excuse. Topps took the easy/cheap way out on this one.

Wow man I feel sick for you... I was in the 2200 auction for a while, but had to throw in the towel a few hours before end.. out of control, coulda came close to a 98 Manning Contenders for that amount lol...

I feel devastated waiting on a black and an 84 cannot imagine if I bought that red... maybe they'll 2nd guess this after reading the reaming theyre currently getting on twitter...

Probably, with their presses busy cranking out baseball cards and other football sets, they already printed these once and Chrome is kind of expensive per card to print.

I wouldn't be happy about it either.

Well my thoughts are that they apparently have them printed now since they are ready to go. So they didn't have them printed a week ago?? why not push the signing back a week?? Topps Sucks! haha

There is absolutely no way I'm going to get what I paid for the Prizm /50 that I redeemed.

I only paid $60 for my camo auto, because I got in at the perfect time so money isn't a huge issue on this since I wouldn't sell it anyway. But this is laughable, the card would have looked SO much better on card. And just due to the fact that they have sticker inventory? I'm angry.

Will someone please show me where Topps stated it would be an on-card auto! If you spent a ton on cash without knowing for sure, pretty sure its not Topps fault.

Would u not be under the assumption that a top 3 player in Topps Chrome would have on card autos?? Not to mention we have waited over 3 months on him because he was a redemption in the product to receive sticker autos. I don't care if I spent big money or not, this is a lazy and cheap move by Topps. They said it themselves, they used stickers because they had them in inventory! So why are they redemption's and why are they just now being made?

Check luck, Griffin, Richardson, Blackmon, Martin, Weeden ect... Tell me why all there refractors are on card autos, and Wilsons are not. The Variation auto refractor is a different story, those are always sticker for every player.

How could you know that? Almost every player in chrome was on-card this year. You really just sound dumb.
