Topps‘ first high-end release of 2012, Topps Tribute, arrived on Friday with previously announced bonus cards not actually being bonuses due to a change in the product configuration.
The company is fixing that problem.
The Tribute To The Stars autographs were originally supposed to be incrementally placed extra hits in the product. Instead, these cards have been found in place of an autograph or Relic.
On Friday, the company announced that it will send a pack of 2011 Bowman Sterling (two autographs and one Relic per) to anyone who sends a Tribute to the Stars card in to the company to have its serial-number verified and have it returned along with the pack.
Cards should be sent to:
The Topps Company
Sports & Entertainment
Attn: Customer Support – 6th Floor
1 Whitehall Street
New York, New York 10004-2109
This offer will expire March 9, 2013.
