Default Hendrix relics

No the Jimi Hendrix relics never hit. I bought two of them for my sons 21 st birthday in jan 1,2011. Have been fighting topps every since then. They refuse to honor them. Actually owe me another very expensive card. They wont return my emails. Won't answer the phone. There screwing me over. Hard. From what I gather the Hendrix estate blocked the release of the cards. I personally will never give topps another penny of my money.

Well, that sucks, but I'm wondering how the Hendrix estate was able to stop everything--Music Music Music has Hendrix relics, after all. I'm guessing the Topps cards had a photo. Hope something works out for you.

Every single Redemption card that topps released for american pie set has yet to be fulfilled. I was trying to put together the complete relic set. I had 6 of these redemptions that were never filled and replaced with meh cards.

I mentioned this is another thread but the Hendrix estate which really had nothing to do with his career, is a nightmare. 3 or 4 times Hollywood had amazing scripts for his movie, a couple which Ive read before, with huge stars attached and the family wanted more money or had unreasonable conditions.

That family is a nightmare, and may end up tarnishing Jimi's legacy. He deserves to be remembered for all time. I've never been blown away by music the way I was when I first heard him play. Absolute legend. I'm guessing the music music music relics were from someone's private collection.

I had a redemption in for the Andrew Zimmern relic and Topps replaced that one as well. Looks like they're just not making the cards they had redemptions for.
