Default Awesome High End UFC Replacement From Topps -- Grill Gear

About two weeks ago I pulled a redemption for a Shane Del Rosario Grill Gear. Just a day before that I purchased the Brian Ebersole redemption from a member on here and he sent me the code so I could redeem right away. The Ebersole showed up 5 days later (how about that for Topps turnaround), but the Del Rosario had still not shown up until today. I thought maybe the delay meant the card had not been made yet, so who knew how long it would take to show up. Today I received another package from Topps, about the same size as the Ebersole so I was excited to see the Del Rosario. When I opened it up, around the Grill Gear was a piece of paper. Anyone who has dealt with Topps knows that this paper 99% of the time means a replacement was given. Luckily I instantly saw the thickness of the replacement was another grill gear.

No, Topps didn't send me one of the Diaz brothers or anything so no ranting about that, however out of the entire Grill Gear checklist the one fighter who I actually collect and like as a fighter they ended up sending me as a replacement. I am at work right now, so no picture but.







STIPE MIOCIC!!



I will get a picture up later this evening. I now have Ebersole, Miocic, Sonnen, and Gaudinot in my collection.

Bryan, thats awesome, curious though why they auto sent a replacement especially before the "6 month wait" what if you were prepared to wait for the Del Rosario. Cant wait to see a picture

Not sure, maybe Del Rosario just made it clear he wouldn't honor his contract with topps to provide the mouthpiece or any other relics or autos or whatever so they knew by now it wasn't going to happen. While it obviously was only a couple weeks since I put the redemption code in, it's been well over 6 months since Finest actually released.

Will get pictures of my 4 grill gears up tonight.

Stipe is probably one of the Grill Gear Topps held on to in case of damage/replacement. Very cool card!
