Default Damaged wacky packages sketch pull

Ok, so I went to kmart before work to look for Topps Olympics cards and they didn't have any, I saw they did have wacky packages cards, I knew there were sketches so I decided to buy some and the first pack I grabbed was open on the bottom, at first I thought all the packs might have been searched, but after shifting through the other packs this was the only one like that, so my curiosity made me peak inside, one of the cards looked textured, I thought it was an insert of some sort, I bought that pack and two others, and incredibly enough, the open pack had a sketch and what I thought was texture looks more like the pack was sealed over it, which I guess explains why it was open? Anyway I looked it up and from the signiture I believe its Jeff Zapata, I was looking for advice on weather or not I should keep it or try to get topps to replace it, I don't especially like the sketch, but I still kind of feel connected to it because I pulled it.

this case looks like a true error is sealing the pack. How can he be blamed for pack searching? I would contact Topps to see if it can be replaced.

It happens. I've gotten packs like that. No problem there.

Your mistake was this:

I would shift through the packs too if I found one open, just to see if they may have been tampered with before I bought any of them.

Don't get me wrong, I do not pack search, cant stand them and don't buy single retail packs beacuse of them, but for those that do, I dont see what is wrong with doing what he did.

I'm, sorry if the way I worded my original post caused any confusion, I did not mean for it to come off as pack searching, I was just trying to expand my vocabulary, and actually now looking back at it I misspelt the word, its suppose to be ”sifting”, without the h. Thanks for all the responses, my main question was just if people thought it'd be worth it trying to get a replacement, I remember reading a thread before about a replacement for a damaged clone wars sketch and not being very happy after, if anyone has dealt with topps customer service if definitely like to hear about it, thank you.

That's a tough one. I think it will still sell well since the Wacky Packages sketches are popular, and Jeff Zapata is one of the decent ones. I would suggest calling Topps and see if they will replace it with another sketch by Zapata. If they can't replace it with another one of his then I'm not sure what to tell you.

By the way, I see that on several of his sketches sold on ebay, they were glow in the dark ones. Have you checked yours to see if it does as well?

you should be able to send it into topps with the wrapper and receipt of purchase and they should send you one comparable.
