Default Bowman Sterling Football Manufacturing Issue

BOWMAN STERLING FOOTBALL MANUFACTURING ISSUE



Because of a manufacturing error, 50% of the master boxes of the just-released 2008 Bowman Sterling Football include 7 autographs instead of the promised 8. To rectify the situation, Topps is asking all master box purchasers that received only 7 autographs to send in their master box’s UPC code to Topps 401 York Avenue, Duryea PA 18642.



In addition to Topps sending out the promised eighth autograph, collectors will also receive an exclusive 10-card Bowman Sterling Blue Refractor Parallel Rookie Set made special just for this issue. Collectors will receive their eighth autograph and the exclusive 10-card set within 6-8 weeks.





REDEMPTION CARDS

Also as a bonus, any collector redeeming a 2008 Bowman Sterling Football Autographed Redemption Card on-line will be eligible for an additional autograph. Collectors will not be able to redeem until Friday, September 5th. The chances of receiving the second autograph will be 1:3.

50% of the boxes were shorted, but I'm guessing Topps will receive more than 50% back claiming they were shorted...

Doubtful, a lot of people aren't going to bother.

I hope not. But, I guess it could be a good thing if someone wanted that set.

If anyone is shorted I will be sure to send them a UPC code. But I hope I don't have to send too many as that would mean people would be without a card for 6-8 weeks when the value of the replacement will be crap.

did you even read what the replacement is? ....... the replacement will be better than 80% of the autos.

I agree with that. But do you think that the replacement auto will be any good? The parallel set will be nice, but everyone will be getting them at around the same time and the market will be flooded with them. You think the price is going to stay up for more than a few days on them?

I'd be more excited about the extra that will come with the redemption, although who knows when those will ship, so it could go either way.

both the boxes I bought at the rip party qualify for this, also they also only put one dual in the master case instead of two, so theres a good chance that one of the "case hits" will be missing.

just a heads up to anyone sending these in, I got a letter today from Topps (with my 2 UPC codes) telling me I have to send them all the wrappers and everything now, along with a sales receipt, what a bunch of horseshit.

How long has it been since you originally sent in your UPCs? I just sent something to them yesterday and if they are asking for all that other stuff then I'm gonna have to go dumpster diving quick!

Go dive then, Topps is going to be real strict with this.

The receipt won't be a problem but my trash went out on TUES and the only thing I rescued just now was 12 wrappers. This stinks, literally.

I just threw away my box this morning when the trash was picked up and I only got 7 autos also. Oh well.

Knew they were going to pull that crap. Last time I have an issue bought a mini box of 2006 topps finest. The rookie auto I got was damaged. Sent them the wrappers and box....but no receipt (about 4 months ago). They sent me a replacement and a letter stating it would only replace the card this one time without all the proper evidence (upc, wrappers, receipt).
