    I know it seems like Topps has all the power and you don't have any options, but if you stick to your guns and make the case that those are not fair/comparable replacements to the Mays, you can get something else like another great HOFer. I remember we had a member a while back with a Bryce Harper orange(?) auto redemption or something that Topps claimed they couldn't fulfill, and they tried to dump a case on him. So he filed the paperwork to take them to court, and if I recall, at the last second Topps caved and got him the Harper auto. So it depends on how badly you want the Mays, but you definitely don't have to settle on either of these offers.

    The problem with Benintendi is-

    1.He already is long past the callup so you don't get that boost.
    2.He already is on a high fan base team, so a trade will only hurt and never help.
    3.He doesn't seem to have the power frame to ever greatly improve from where he is now.. 18hr (so 25ish by season end) and people don't seem to care much. How much would he have to improve to get his value high enough to equal the Mays?

    This is exactly why I haven't opened cards in years, your upside is so slim here and they know it.

    Ask for jeter. Another high-end vet and they have the new deal with him.

    It's a joke what they're offering. Like mentioned above. Their cost of a mays compared to these prospects is huge. You could take all 3 and they'd still make out on the deal.

    Here is what I sent back..

    I would think that you would be able to replace the Mays Auto with a card of the same stature.. A Hall of Fame player that is one of the top players that has ever played the game is not the same as a rookie auto..

    I'm pretty much a collector and I would like something of close to the same..

    (see attached at some of the cards I have in my collection)

    and here's a link to some other cards I have..

    [link removed]

    Thanks for your time,
    Kevin

    good reply.

    I think a thing to do in the future is also link threads like this but have the poll instead be "Is this offer Equal or Greater Value as promised?" Y/N

    What is the deal with the Mays? How long have you been waiting for it? Did they say it won't be fulfilled?

    I'd much rather have the Mays than the others.

    Since I was reading about the other Topps Redemption travesty, I thought I would post an update..

    I'm still waiting.. The guy that I talk to knows I am patient and always have been, and he's willing to find a card that would fit into my collection..

    Eventually I'll get a decent card.. I keep nudging him for a Dynasty Griffey..
