You're also right about making your voice known to spur change. The whole West Coast got left out of last year's Bowman Blue Wave promotion. However, enough complaints got Topps to establish limits on later similar deals. There weren't as many compaints in the later promotions.
thanks.. funny thing is im not even mad lol.. i was just sayin topps did it wrong.. i was gona buy a box maybe 2 to see what all the hype was about but meh.. good luck on the boxes you got!

its just like how all the people were complaining about the russell wilson chrome redemptions w/ topps.. tons of people were complaining about the sticker autos.. now topps hasn't shipped any yet.. maybe its because they are going to get russ to sign on card now? maybe not.. but possibly it had an affect on their future releases of redemptions that dont sport on card auto..
Let me rephrase what I'm trying to say. It's good to complain, but complaining on this forum will do you no good. Honestly, complaining to Topps sometimes does no good. Have you heard about their appearance at the National? Hear about how they run their wrapper redemption program? Let me paint a picture for you...it's almost like going trick or treating at a house that leaves the candy at the front door for you to take as much as you want. No rules...just a free for all.

I'm not saying be a sheep or a lemming. I'm just saying that this hobby for people that buy sealed packs/boxes is all about the bottomline. And as much as ANYONE wants to complain, if people make a suggestion that is not profitable to Topps as a business, they will most likely not listen to you. I went to their meet and greet at the National last year...lots of good questions and complaints...but you can tell they do not have their ear on the collector.

On the other hand, Panini seemed like they were so into the collectors...it makes you feel bad that they are not the most sought after cards in the industry. If Panini was the big dog in the industry, I have a feeling this release would have been run better.

I've never seen the Topps corporate office, but I have a feeling it's not a large operation. It doesn't surprise me that their site was unable to handle the bandwidth this morning, since people don't bust down Topps door for any other products they sell. Only when they have these exclusive releases.

Topps hasn't tweeted anything about Turkey Red being Sold Out.... Im guessing they will release more next Tuesday when they start to ship this first batch.

In case you missed it...it looks like Turkey Red is back in stock. Shows "Add To Bag" as of 2:24 EST. The picture still shows out of stock though. My thoughts are, they cancelled a bunch of people that ordered more than 25 and freed up some stock. Hurry!!!

Are you guys adding to bag? It shows sold out, but it's still letting me add to bag. No indication that it's sold out other than the picture.

Do you see the green button on the product page? Has a number 1 in the square and "Add To Bag"?

I wonder if it's cached or a browser issue. It let me order.
