Default Should I replace these redemptions???

So after seeing a 2013 Full Contact Auto of Anderson Silva live and in packs of the new UFC Knockout... and I've been waiting years for my 2010 Full Contact Auto of him... I left a couple of messages on Topps's Twitter page with no response.

I'm VERY frustrated by this, and can't even believe they would do this to loyal customers who have been waiting years. It's an absolute joke. Plus, Silva's signature is so scratchy and nasty now (and gets worse with every release)... by the time they do get him to sign it, it's going to just be a barely squiggly line.

So I'm left with a bunch of other redemptions still pending, and I just feel like pulling the plug on them...

2010 UFC Knock Out Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira- Full Contact Autograph
2010 UFC Knock Out Anderson Silva- Full Contact Autograph
2011 UFC Finest Finest Fighters Auto of Rick Story
2011 UFC Finest Finest Fighters Auto Octafractor of Rick Story
2011 UFC Finest Finest Fighters Auto of Donald Cerrone
2011 UFC Finest Finest Moments Auto of Phil Davis
2011 UFC Finest Finest Fighters Auto of Cain Velasquez
2012 UFC Knock Out Autograph Fighter Relic of Alan Belcher
2012 UFC Knock Out Fighter Red Ink Nickname Parallel of Brock Lesnar
2012 UFC Knock Out Fighter Autograph Red Parallel of Jose Aldo
2012 UFC Knock Out Fighter Autograph of Jose Aldo
2012 UFC Finest Finest Fighters Refractor Auto of Jose Aldo
2012 UFC Knock Out Autographed Premium Pieces of Jose Aldo
2012 UFC Finest Finest Fight Mat Jumbo Auto Relic of Randy Couture

My question is... has anyone requested replacements for higher end cards? I know nothing here is CRAZY high end, but there are some decent ones here, but out of the 14 in total, I paid quite a bit for these 4 here...

2010 UFC Knock Out Anderson Silva- Full Contact Autograph
2011 UFC Finest Finest Fighters Auto Octafractor of Rick Story
2012 UFC Knock Out Fighter Red Ink Nickname Parallel of Brock Lesnar
2012 UFC Knock Out Fighter Autograph Red Parallel of Jose Aldo

Just wondering what people's thoughts are? I'm scared to replace them and get a bunch of old unnumbered sticker autos.

I hate redemptions, whatever you decide after this I would stay away from any product that is loaded with that redemption crap. The only problem is most companies don't advertise that they are full of redemptions.

most of that i would prob just replace and hope the coin flip lands in ur favor...

the anderson i feel will never get made...its 3yrs old...just dont see it....

i thought i remember that the rick story was never actually made or in the set...could be the other way around tho that he was a replacement for someone else...but either way...i would replace that unless ur a story fan...cuz chances are u might get better/more upside guy in return...

the brock i would wait on but idk if they are gonna get those...

the red aldo is the one i would most wait for...cuz i feel like he doesnt have alot of autos...ppl get fed up and replace them...so he is one of the elite guys who is NOT over produced and flooded with 1000s of autos...

I'd hang for the 4 especially. The one time I asked for a replacement, they replaced it with the same card. That was weird.

I called and raised hell about the same Anderson recently. Spoke with 3 different people and NONE of them have any idea what the hell is going on with it.
Finally, I gave up and demanded a replacement. Asked for a 2013 Anderson on-card. We'll see...

Thanks for all the thoughts guys!! I might just wait a bit more... and if nothing is sent soon, I'll probably replace most or all.

Ty Hope - Keep us posted on what you receive for your replacement!!
