Topps Redemption...Got bent over again by Topps
 
So I was waiting on a Redemtion for 2012 Knockout of Brock Lesner... well the one day I was on the phone with Topps and they reminded me about my redemption and said most likely Brock Lesner would not be signing... well my replacement came yesterday... 2010 Main Event Lyoto Machida...are you kidding me 2 years older and not really worth what Lesner's auto could be worth...

OMG! That's disgusting... I have a 2012 Knockout Red Ink Brock #/15 that I'm waiting for. Damn, I paid a lot for it too... I will probably get screwed too.

That sucks dude, sorry to hear! Maybe you can send it back? If I recall right, those Lesnar redemptions were selling for around 30 to 35 bucks... I'd be surprised if the Machida got even 15 bucks.

I have a ton of Topps UFC autos that I'm waiting for. And I'm not buying another single redemption or even a box, until they get their act together. They keep releasing products (Bloodlines coming in Nov and Knockout in early 2013), and they can't even fill redemptions from as far back as 2010 Knockout. Unbelievable.

Sorry dude that does suck, do they ask you for a name of someone you would like a replacement of? I have never dealt with it but my bro always gives names of teams he does collect.I know you cant do that with mma but why not give them like 2 people you would be happy with.

nice to see I pulled my hard signed Lesnar in a pack last year when he was still signing for the UFC

Srt42004n 10-07-2012 09:18 PM

Bc they dont give u who u want

Does filing with the BBB do anything? IMO if you are opening the product because of a certain auto - and then they fill it with a less expensive they should be responsible to match the value at least...

I'd call and complain until I got free stuff - but I just hate when I get gymped.

You really got stiffed, Lesnar is like $75-$100, while the guy you got is $20

Topps doesn't guarantee a certain value will be in the box. All it says is there will be a certain amount of hits. If you pulled a redemption for a auto even if it doesn't have that auto it sends you a auto in it's place. You got what you were supposed to get it's not fair but, i've heard worse.

Wrong. Topps places values on their cards by some jobber who sits behind a desk and presses buttons all day. They claim to make fair replacements and as before this is going back today with a letter and we'll see. Last time I was due a Darin Mastroiani Red Ref Auto and they sent me a jon singleton /199 ref auto from platinum...sent it back and they sent me a AJ Cole Red ref auto

Dang, I still have a Brock outstanding, too. I had a Chandella Powell & got a notice it was late, so when I called and told them I would accept someone else of equivalent BV. They sent me a Chandella Powell. Go figure...

Thats pretty nasty..IM still waiting on 2 UFC redemptions from 2010 knockouts....

kingah 10-20-2012 11:30 AM

i have a silva knockout auto redemption over 1 year now!!!

kingah 10-20-2012 11:31 AM

should i wait or get a replacement??lmk thanks!!

Srt42004n 10-21-2012 10:21 PM

I sent mine back with another little love note...we shall see.. I explained how Lesner's value is that of a top tier fighter not a 2 year old card

I have been waiting almost 2 years for several UFC redemptions...2010 Knockout Rashad Evans Auto relic X2, 2010 Knockout Rashad Evans Auto relic Green parallel, Series 4 Ultimate Gear relic Brendan Schaub, 2011 Finest Donald Cerrone...What I got for them were less than stellar:

for the Evans green parallel they gave me a Brian Bowles auto relic from 2010 Knockout, for the other two Evans' they gave me one Machida auto relic and one Rich Franklin auto relic from 2010 Knockout...for the Cerrone they gave me a CB Dollaway auto from round 2...for the Schaub relic, they gave me the Schaub relic that the original redemption was for! WTF! 2 years and they got around to it...

I called Topps about it and the reply was that their UFC stock is being depleted and have nothing to fill the redemptions with...

terrible CS. just terrible.

Srt42004n 10-22-2012 08:35 AM

But they fulfilled 2010 with 2010 redemptions... Mine was 2012 and it was filled by 2010.
