Default topps redemption mailday

mainly posted for one card. I pulled a topps inception Justin hunter logo patch auto 1/1 redemption months ago and have been waiting for topps to finally send it to me. well my redemption along with 2 other redemptions were in the package with a letter. this is what it says




thank you for your submission of the 2013 INCEPTION FB- JUSTIN HUNTER AUTO JUMBO PATCH TEAM LOGO PARALLEL REDEMPTION.

We apologize for the excessive delay, however, we were trying to obtain the exact card specified on your original redemption. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have not been able to obtain the exact card specified. Enclosed, you will find a replacement equal in value to the original redemption.



so here's what they sent instead










Now most probably would be fine with this, but im not. I got a nice 1/1 Justin hunter patch auto yes. But topps triple threads has 15 1/1's per player not including the printing plates. Theres one patch auto 1/1 in topps inception. That's it. Second it was a team logo patch auto. Third, how can you not obtain a card you made? Ok I get it if you send it to the player and they never return it, but all of the inception 1/1 patch autos are stickers. So this card would have never left the facility. Their reasoning is due to circumstances out of their control, but this is all BS. it was completely in their control. Basically they either, never made it (highly doubt that), an employee took it (highly probable), or they actually did make the card and sent it to someone else as a replacement and screwed up.

Yes I got a $100+ sale value card, but actual rarity value is not even close. That and inception looks better anyway.

any thoughts? am I being too anal about this or do others agree?

They know how to TAKE the reservation, they just don't know how to HOLD the reservation.

And that's really the most important part of the reservation.

I don't like it either but they probably won't do anything about it.

HAHAHA, nice

OP, sorry you dont like th replacment as much as what you should have received. It is a ncie looking card though, but I understand about their being 15 1/1s in TTT (im collecting Ryan Nassib). But if theirs only 1 1/1 in Inception, it should be easy to find if it ever pops up. till then I guess their arent any 1/1s for Hunter in Inception
