Default 2013 UFC Knock Out REDEMPTION Knockout Auto Base Card of Miesha Tate

It seems that Miesha Tate has been reliable and prolific as a signer for Topps, and they continue to release cards signed by her, both on card and stickered, yet they seem to have problems fulfilling the 2013 UFC Knock Out REDEMPTION Knockout Auto Base Card of Miesha Tate.

Has anyone heard from Topps regarding this card? I've submitted multiple redemptions for this same card and they all remain unfulfilled.

It's not as if it's a rare or numbered card (unless they're going to be manufacturing it as such), it's an autographed base card they could simply either throw a sticker on or send her a stack of cards to sign, I'd think theoretically.

Again, another reason why redemptions from Topps isn't so appealing. They're not so organized to provide proactive status updates, have a poor system to communicate and are slow to delivery on their product.

there are still tons of unfilled redemptions all the way back to 2010 KO, at this point I would as for a replacement(if you collect Miesha, ask for something of her, they may have some rare cards of hers, knowing Topps, they have a 1/1 of her)and then if they after get made, rebuy them on ebay.

This is why I sell any and all redemption cards I get in any product put out by Topps. They are horrible at getting cards out to people and are really just waiting for you to ask for a replacement. Panini, while not great, seems to get more accomplished and I appreciate that they put out a weekly list of all the cards they have received and are sending out. Good luck with your card, but I'm with twoten01, you're probably just better off asking for a replacement at this point.

It's been another half year and still no update.

Should I assume Topps will be honorable and send an update or the cards or a replacement or something?

Or is Topps hoping people will forget and go away, so they don't have to honor these redemptions proactively and only oil the squeaky wheel?

While I understand Twoten's point, I disagree. Every time I've asked for a replacement I have been disappointed in the card (s) I've received.
I have the complete set of 2012 Finest /8 autographs, but have been waiting for the PENDING Rashad Evans. Like Miesha, he has been in multiple releases since, so really don't understand. I would think that they would have someone who "rotates the milk" and gets the oldest redemption completed 1st, but that doesn't seem to happen. I will say that they have sent my last few cards FedEx, which can't be cheap. So hopefully someone will start working to resolve the backlog.

did you ever get the tate, or still waiting? this card (if it is the one #/209 - which seems to be the base) has been live for quite awhile now.

I have a quantity three (3) redemptions of the exact same card "2013 UFC Knock Out REDEMPTION Knockout Auto Base Card of Miesha Tate"
registered on different dates and none have come in yet nor any status updates provided by Topps other than showing "Pending" on the website.

Bummer guys, it is weird to think they have newer product with her in it on card or sticker. Seems like they could just slap stickers on the ones you are waiting for. Hope they get made for ya'll's sake.

I know, it seems they're all sticker based, and they've released Miesha Tate autographed cards since the redemption program for that card.

So in theory I'd think that if the redemptions are stickered, they could have long since printed a card and stick an autograph sticker on the cards and be done with their obligation.

Anything short of being individually numbered and autographed on card will be a disappointment for all of the waiting involved.

It's one thing to continue redemption programs if they've mastered fulfillment and customer service / satisfaction, but all companies seem to not know how to properly manage the program and are better off just doing pack-in inserts, no redemptions and if they're waiting for athletes to sign any cards, just use those for a future release.

They've created more work and ill will by having redemption programs.

The worst part is the card companies seem to treat 'em as the big companies do with "mail in rebates" and hope customers don't redeem them or forget about them and alleviate any obligations. The card companies should be proactive in their communication and provide status updates in a forthright manner rather than telling people to contact them, then ignoring the messages.
