You have to send in the wrappers, UPC from the box, receipt, and letter of explanation. The info is on the topps website on how to do it.

Did anybody else have a weird plastic wrap on the outside of their boxes? Sounds like he is ripping people off to me.

Sorry to hear that you did not get the 4 hits you were supposed to get. I can not control what gets put in the boxes. You can contact Topps and they will take care of this. The 800 number should be on the bottom of the box. Thank you again for your purchase. Frank
This response is 100% reasonable. As long as the Topps shrink wrap was on the box, it is not the dealer's fault.

The thing is I don't think it is topps normal shrink wrap. I can normaly get through it with my hands but had to cut through this wrap with a blade. It can't be very hard to rewrap a box if you have the equipment, I've seen them do it to games at gamestop.

After closer inspection of the wrapper, it's definitely not legit. The small Topps logos are little stickers (not printed directly on wrapping)...

and now I see him selling all of the good hits and the box toppers on his other ebay account: delprete1 | eBay

Those who paid $50 were idiots, they only paid that much because it was brand new and people didn't understand they are manufactured. This happened when Topps first released these patches in Baseball Blasters like 3 years ago. I made a killing because people would pay $50 when the blasters were $20.

The Silva/GSP can be had for 10-15 now

Yup everything is fishy about his boxes. Thicker wrapper, sticker Topps logos, broken seal:

Hi - a similar situation happened to me a few years ago. I bought on Ebay what I thought was a factory sealed box of 2006 Topps Series 2 rack packs looking for Alex Gordon SPs. When it arrived something about the box did not seem right. In this case the shrink wrap was rather loose and there was a hole in the wrap. Upon further inspection I determined the box was searched and resealed. I had some other unopened Topps retail product in my house and I compared the shrink wraps. The Topps logos on the wrapper were slightly off on the Ebay box & upon closer look I could see it was actually a stamp. I contacted the seller & then filed a claim with Paypal. I received a full refund but had to return the box. This may not work for you since you opened the packs. There are SHADY PEOPLE out there that will search these boxes and then reseal them so they look new & hope they don't get caught. Complete A $ $ holes IMO and I hope they all get what they deserve.

Hope this helps. Also, I had missing hits several times from Knockout but I know those were legit Topps screwups cause I bought them from my LCS and he doesn't search stuff. In fact he never really busts much just sells lots of boxes and cases.
