It's strictly a personal opinion. This certainly doesn't make his cards worthless. But worth - LESS than on card.. sure. Some people paid ridiculous amounts of $ on, say, the red refractors.. FULLY expecting on card autographs on the low serial #ing. Those people, if trying to flip, will lose money.

My question now, is.... Will his Superfractor auto have a sticker, too?? If so...ouch!!

I have contacted the VP and CEO personally through a connection. I would strongly recommend that all of you upset with this let Topps know via Twitter and email immediately today. It takes two minutes and the decision-makers will be much more inclined to change the current path if they know I'm not the only guy (respectfully) complaining.

I am one of the 5 waiting on a red auto redemption. I don't have personal contacts at Topps to voice my thoughts directly, but I did send an email.

Contacting the BBB and the President of Topps... you guys crack me up. Nobody is going to do anything because the redemption says Russell Wilson auto, not Russell Wilson auto on card for added sell value...lol. BBB will ignore all emails for that point. You are promised a Russell Wilson autograph rookie and are getting one.

So I guess his Finest and National Treasures on-cards will be his best cards now?

This is a good reason not to pay top dollar for redemptions.

Buyer I saw paid 2,000 for russell wilson red auto...they look hideous to say the least with those stickers which do not have a place on these cards. They looked ok when topps made a spot for them...

IMO his chrome autos are ruined value wise and aesthetically and if I had a redemption of him at Topps I would ask for a replacement

What would you rather have? Hillman looks like garbage with that out of place sticker, i would not take that card if given to me for free...UGLY as HELL

This crap


or this...lol

I read that, says they were trouble getting all the cards hard signed so they could try and get on card autos. Never says they would get them all on card.

I'm not going to try and reason with my statement, because as I stated the redemptions don't say on card so there is nothing that states for them to have to do them that way.

Just think some people go to far about cards these days, we all know each company has their own mess of stuff they do or don't do. No need to contact the BBB, or like like crazed person on twitter for something you can't change.

Maybe Wilson's hand was tired from sorting through close to a thousasnd on-card Upper deck SP Authentic cards he signed...

I can only pray Contenders is on-card, I've got both a Rookie Ink and Playoff RPS/99 I pulled due in eventually...

I feel sorry for guys who paid primo prices for his redemptions frome chrome. The superfractor auto I hope for the guy who pulled it sake it will be on card...sticker would be a disaster for it IMO

I actually pulled an /10 gold refractor and redeemed and hoped for 3/10 and a card to PC and send to BGS. Does anyone think I will get close to the $1200 these were selling for now? I tweeted, I wrote, I complained, doubt it matters. Thanks Topps

Do the redemptions say 'on-card'? Where did Topps advertise his Chrome redemptions were going to be hard-signed? Honest question.

Honest question- why would Lamar Miller have on card autos but Russell Wilson wouldn't?? No they didn't advertise it or say it on the redemption, but when u purchase topps chrome you assume that the top guys will be on card. Topps had Wilson as a redemption and had a chance to make collectors happy with nice on card autos, instead they took the cheap easy way out and slapped sticker invitory on them! Sad effort!

If Foles is on card, there is no sense in why these cannot be on card. Not a matter of advertising, more a point of giving collectors what is RIGHT.

But no, now the Wilson chrome autos are hideous and worth half of what a on card version would demand...YAY

A complete disaster I agree...lets face it gentleman, these card manufacturers could care less about what we want, because regardless who complains, they will sell tons of their product next year and every year after that, lol...

Unfortunately that's basically what it comes down to.

Actually there's no one special to chase next year let alone the immense rookie class like this year was...it'll stay at 75 and drop to 60...
