Be prepared not to get the X Factor you expected js. Everyone complains about the replacements from card companies

About the same for me a few weeks back. Their CS has gotten much better in that area.

Be thankful you don't have to sort through 5 more worthless base cards?

Cut your losses and don't bother losing more money (time) by trying to contact topps over $2.50.

This happened to me as well a little over a year ago. Really f'in weird...how the heck do they mess that up?!??! Worse for me is I just started collecting again after a ~20 yr hiatus from collecting as a kid. I wasn't happy and even more frustrated since I just started again and found out how much it costs to buy packs. Anyhow, I did what most people are saying, nothing because it wouldn't be worth the time (even if they did eventually send the pack).
One final note to make it worse...guess what the blaster was? 2012 Topps FB Chrome....
Makes me even more pissed off now since this is probably the most valuable "regular" blaster box in the past ~5 years...probably longer (pretty sure anyhow).

There's a chance that it wasn't a Topps screw up, but somebody popped open the blaster, pack searched, re-sealed, and returned it.

Actually yes walmart will take it back…. I recorded 2 blasters of chrome that were missing packs….. took the packs as well as the video on my phone to the service desk and asked for a manager…. don't go through one of the regular employees …. they won't know what to do…..

Explained to the manager what the problem was….. showed him the video….. gave the remaining cards back and got my money!


Cards are just like ANY OTHER PRODUCT you can buy at walmart….. if there is something missing or damaged the HAVE to replace or refund.


Also on the list of Non-returnable items…. no-where do sports / trading / gaming cards appear.


just my 3 cents from personal experience

they will for sure take it back. I have bought a few that were opened and resealed with random baseball and football cards just stuffed inside. Luckily I usually open mine on the way out of the store so i caught those two as i was walking out and they saw me on the camera, they refunded me very quickly. Freakin punks that do that and think they are slick piss me off!

They are packed (or half packed depending on set up) by machines, it happens. Honestly, I wouldn't spend much energy or thought on losing a $2.50 pack. With two threads, I am guessing you have already passed the time/energy/thought value.
