Topps is making out like a bandit … err, gypsy … with this product.

Out of a 4 product u got 1, since one was a redemption. It seems to be happening quite a bit, and I have seen people get those jewel cards as replacements as hits. They may sell well but a hit is a relic or auto. I sure hope Topps gets their stuff together. Missing hits and the other nonsense like overpriced Tribute!

I plan on staying away from this product. Too many problems and I don’t see any value here.

Due to the price point and the problem with the hits I’ll probably stay away from this one, other than to scour the bay for some of the Orioles singles….

How is it that Topps continues to take advantage of being the “only baseball card producer”?
“Forgotten Cards” “Damaged cards” They do it because they can, and we continue to send them our money. They are either very poorly managed, or brilliant crooks.

I know you can try and cover for Topps But like I’ve said before the GREED factor is looming large.
This is what happens with exclusive contracts a company has no incentive to do things the right way there is no other options for collectors to let “the market decide.”
I was really looking forward to buying a box on the hype but thanks to Beckett and Youtube
I will just stay with buying a few packs. There is NO EXCUSES for shorting boxes all this really means is Topps pushed the product out the door as quick as they could before it was ready.
Topps is looking more like Upper deck all the time what do you guys think?

Ha! Mr. Olds, I am sorry you got shorted, but thrilled that you posted this video. Horrible marketing for Topps. The quality of the cards has dropped tremendously.

I’m not “covering” for anyone.

Im not sure he is covering for topps. Did you not see chris’ face on the final pack. Im sure he has an idea where he would like that thumb to go.

how is olds covering? He Bought the box, busted the box, and gave an honest opinion of the product. He expressed his likes and dis-likes.
