I have been tweeting, facebooking and emailing, along with calling - waiting on 2 wilsons and a bunch of LaMichael James - not to mention the Blue Wave pack.

Isn't it ironic that we are waiting on the blue wave packs to be produced, which were the compensation for these redemptions even existing?

BTwitter em up with Blue Wave and Wilson questions.

And I could of gotten $1250 for my gold redemption...%#^* me! I redeemed hoping for a sweet PC card to grade, chance at 3/10, and the last thing I thought was a sticker. Once again I get taken to the woodshed on these redemptions. They held my Hosmer until it went from $550 to $200. Now this? But don't fret, I will keep buying...I may have seriously had enough of this bullcrap.

BUY SILVER, HOLD SILVER, SELL SILVER, REPEAT...

This is one on the better cards I have pulled in the 10s of thousands spent annually and it gets dicked with. EFFEW TOPPS...YOU TOO PANINI!

Brian Gray only guy to show me any customer service. What does that say about the hobby? I am about to join pack searchers because apparently they are the only ones who do not keep losing.

Let's hear it from all those who cannot wait to tell me to stop whining. Topps fulfilled their promise. I was not promised a non sticker, blah blah blobity blah

I'm assuming they edit their Tweets since none of mine posted and last one shown from February 7th? Of course I am 43 and not a social media amateur, forget expert. The last card I was looking forward to receiving will have a nice crooked sticker on a gold /10 Topps Chrome. WTF At least I actually pulled card but if known sticker could have sold. Obviously these will not be the cards to chase. Thanks Topps...how else to have us stand in line for Valor and Five Star

Well topps just said on twitter that all Wilson chrome cards are not complete yet, maybe that means that Gold/red/super will be on card?? I dunno why they wouldn't be done yet if they just had to slap a sticker on them. Also the blue wave packs are not done yet either, so it could be a while :/

By the time these redemptions are done it will be 2014 and most of the blue waves will be useless.

I will say that since I spoke with him Topps has indicated that the Wilson cards are "not all complete." That's progress when it looked pretty clear that they were going to all be stickers.

What a disaster..... I have the black, 1984 and 2 base and paid way more than I would have... Just like many others I assume.... Kind of a lesson learned about buying redemptions I guess.... Hopefully they hear all the backlash and make this right... They announced the cards were ready to go all happilly , as if we were going to be thrilled they were finally coming lol... Is it possible they didnt realize what a big deal it was to be sticker instead of on card??? Hoping they realize we'd rather wait a few more weeks than get a product of much lower quality than what our expectations were..... I keep tellling myself "Thank god you didnt spring for the red"... but I feel terrible for the people that did...

Mine haven't been making it on there either. Guess there is a way to block angry customers like us!

Have any of the redemptions been sent from this set? I have a few of each guy and haven't received a single card. JUST MAKE THE ALFRED MORRIS AUTO A REDEMPTION LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE or just slap a sticker on a Chrome auto and put it in the packs!

Morris is supposedly the only non blue wave card you can get in the packs, right?

As for Russell specifically, when they say they are "not all done yet" that just means they probably received 200 stickers from him, so a few of us will get them in the first batch, then the rest (likely me) will get them in 2014 when they get more stickers, eventhough he will have auto's in 15 products between now and when we get them back.

I have never been so pissed about something as I am with these frickin blue wave packs and redemptions that Topps was "aware of, which is why the blue wave pack programs exists"

SWEET! There were too many redemptions in the product, so now we get blue wave packs, which they can't produce in under 6 months AND a sticker auto's on top of that - can it get any better than that?

Great buy, it sucks that the selling price will probably be closer to that $30 mark by the time anyone gets them - then the floodgates will be wide open with people listing away.

Well I redeemed my prizm auto that I pulled the 2nd week of release. Just like so many of you I really would have thought this was a on card auto. I guess the only good thing for me is I pulled this so it only cost me the price of a box. On the bad side so many of you paid a premium for his card because its CHROME and its the cream of the crop when it comes to Topps cards as far as price you can get some of the most valuable cards for your money. But for Topps to do this (stickers) really sucks. I would much rather wait longer for an on card auto then a sticker auto.

IMO in 5 years prizm will have equal value as chrome. Especially for r.wilson some people dropped 2k+ for the red ref auto/5 now it won't be worth half that.

I already have a couple of cards from Sterling that are STICKER auto's but the only difference between Chrome and Sterling is that Sterling the card was live not a redemption.
An like you I believe I will get mine graded also if it looks good. Again I feel really bad that Topps screwed this up.
