The only time I've ever complained about missing hits was in 2009. I bought 12 boxes of Absolute football and the auto was missing in 9 of them. The staff at the card shop I ripped the boxes at can attest...and I've been told the story still gets told to other customers to this day.

I've definately sent in requests to Panini/Upper Deck and Topps, when I've had missing hits...I think its been about 5 times...

but never lied about it...

So you are saying you got the auto and are claiming you didn't?

I've submitted for missing hits, but only when I actually miss the hits. I really don't take pleasure in contributing to the further diluting the card company's ability to give us the best product possible by bogging them down with false claims. On the other hand, when I do get shorted, I do feel ripped off, especially when it's already a bad box, so yeah, I'll file a legit claim.

I am going to be completely honest here, I busted a box of 2013 bowman baseball. I pulled a black ice Bundy Auto /5. I was pissed however bc I didn't receive as advertised the Bowman CHROME Prospect auto, instead a sticker rc auto. (this is after I got hosed on 6 boxes with NO color!). So I sent in the request and BAM S.Romero Auto! I voted Yes just to be honest but really no based on circumstance Sorry for the long read...carry on

I definitely did not get the auto, I just have been lazy and have not yet even sent the package.

I also still have a damaged mahamed sanu sp authentic auto patch rc card and a whole pack of machine damaged inception baseball cards I have to send back.

I actually just started collecting again and buying online and Panini honestly shorted me a hit in my hockey box how do i go about it. Do they actually take care of you or is it pointless to even try.

lol, GUESS I SHOULD STATE FOR THE RECORD... I would NEVER and HAVE NEVER LIED ABOUT A missing HIT... It has happened to me once, out of the maybe 100 boxes of wax Ive opened in my life... So was just curious to know, as it seems to happen SO MUCH to other people... Either the card companies REALLY SUCK at doing their job when putting the boxes together for consumers to buy? Or some claims must be false.... Though I must say 96 No to 3 yes, gives me hope!! But man I will always still be amazed at the countless stories i hear every day of missing hits!

You've opened only 100 boxes of wax and have had it happen to you at once. I'd hate to humble you, but there are a whole lot of us who run through 100 boxes in a matter of months or at least in a year. Not only that, but there do tend to be products that miss hits more than others. Personally, I think I've only had to submit claims to Panini a couple of times, but for some reason, I've done it many times for Topps Chrome products (Bowman Chrome & Topps Chrome).

I have ripped a lot this year. Quick math says around 200+ boxes. One case of NT but the rest was Topps and I am done for the year.... well maybe 4 cases of Draft but I am not sure yet.

I have never contact Topps about a missing hit. Just not worth the hassle to me. I honestly wouldn't even know how to go about doing it. I guess if I was opening one case a year and I saved up for it all year, I probably would but I guess I just figure Topps isn't going to give you a gold Puig or something. I rip mostly for the big hits anyways so, if it was missing, I just move on.

Has anyone ever got anything decent by contacting Topps about a missing hit.

I was missing two autos from a case of BC. I was newly back into the hobby and to the 'hit' game. There was no such animal when I used to collect. Not knowing how it worked I just called Topps to ask them. They made me feel like a criminal. I would never call and report it again which was probably their intent.

Regardless of the poll numbers I would be willing to bet that they have tons of people trying to scam them this way so I kind of understand but if they had even a semblence of QC they would have a leg to stand on. In the end they sent me a pack of Sterling which I thought was fair. Crap pack but I have now bought enough BC to know the two missing autos would have been nobodies anyways.

A couple months ago I was shorted 1 hit from a box of 2010 Topps T206. Called and obviously they said they can't help because it's an older product. A week later I ordered a box 2012 Gypsy Queen and was shorted a relic. So I called, figured they wouldn't do anything but I thought it was worth a shot. The person I spoke to said that normally they wouldn't do anything because it was a previous year product with a newer release but she wanted to make it right. She said she would send me a full size relic from this years Gypys Queen and 3 Hobby packs of 2013 Gypsy Queen. Not even a week later I had a package from Topps. Inside was a 2013 Gypsy Queen Jordan Zimmerman Full size Relic and 3 Hobby Packs of Gypsy Queen which yielded this...

In 2011, I missed one hit in six boxes of football, cvering four different products. Every one of the boxes was opened in one of two LCS. I reported these to Panini, yet, not one hit was replaced. I chalked it up to a bad run of luck. I am sure Panini thought I was trying to scam them. Both owners told Panini about watching me open the product, but, to no avail. It all seemed to balance out in 2012 when I was fortunate to pull some monsters from the same products I had been shorted. Elite - Hard Hat #/49 Andrew Luck, Gridiron Gems RG3 triple jersey auto, Certified Demaryius Thomas auto #/15 (not as big as the others), Prestige - Andrew Luck Draft Ticket auto, NFL Passport RG3 auto.

bought a case of 2010 bowman chrome once and got 10 autos in it (non usa), 9 base autos and 1 refractor auto of gary sanchez, didn't get a sano, shelby miller or anything else worth anything, pulled a chapman it was like 2 centering basically missing a border, actually 2 centering

actually had 3 boxes with no autos and 1 box had two scrub base autos to balance to 10

i looked into complaining, but it really seemed like a lot of effort to get 2 free pedro baez base autos with cocaine smeared on them and 7.5 centering

well a few years back prolly around 2004 I busted a box of 2000 Pros/Prospects and pulled a redemption for a Griffey Auto Jersey card but it was expired! So I wrote a letter about how I was a little kid who doesn't have much money and that it would mean so much if they could honor it. About a month later I get the card!!
