Default Was Going Through Some 2012 Topps WWe Base...

... and came across this gem. I bought a case when they first came out and it was the most lack luster case I have ever opened until I found this stuck behind a base card when I was sorting through them. Its the one auto in the set that I wanted really bad. I feel like an idiot for not seeing it when I busted the case.

Very nice find, I pulled that auto in my case as well. It's a great looking card.

i only grabbed one stack of base out of a random box and it was just there. i am probably going to go through the rest to check it now.

So then Topps didn't short you on your case. Did you ever do anything with the replacements they sent.

Dude Love is one of my favorites from that set. Looks like sweet auto.

Very nice card! Always nice to find a gem inside what you think is a lot of commons. I'm still (patiently) waiting for that to happen to me!

You should probably send that Dude Love back to Topps, just to even the playing field with them for the replacement hits

Just wanted to quote that since you were all up in arms that Topps had the audacity to send you 2 replacement autographs (not mats or shirts) that weren't up to your standards ()based on nothing but your word that you were shorted hits (when you weren't).

dont forget about the 2 2011 cases that had a total of 5 autos....
and it was still bogus of them to send autos from a bad past product to replace current ones
