    New Topps Redemption process?

    Yesterday I received a package in the mail for a redemption replacement I asked for back in January I believe... but it wasn't a normal card. The letter states that they are using retired and active player (sticker) autos to create a new auto set specifally for replacing redemptions. The cards are not sold in stores, online and have no set tied with them. Is this the new thing with fulfilling redemption cards and has anyone gotten something similair? My card was a 2011 Marquee Cody Ross dual relic auto, but instead got a Don Sutton auto from this "new" set. I don't even know how to classify this card if I wanted to try and sell it on ebay...

    Here are the images of the front and back of the card. I got it and tried looking to see what set it was from. When I didn't find anything I read the letter to find out it doesn't belong to one...

    They have done these for a couple of years now, made thier own cards and sent them out as replacements. I believe the first run had Andre Dawson, Prince Fielder, Gary Sheffield and Lou Pinella cards.

    At least it looks pretty nice. From my dealings with Topps, I am surprised you didn't get a slab of cardboard with a jeremy papelbon sticker auto.

    New Topps Redemption process?

    I got one of those fielders the first year in place of my on card Steve Carlton relic redemption.

    Btw, that was my last redemption ever with them.

    Topps is basically saying...here you go, thanks for waiting 9 months, it is just too much of a pain in the ass and costs too much money for us to make your card, so we are
    reaching into our drawer of garbage and will slap a sticker auto on a card and send it to you. We feel that this saves us the most money and gets you off our backs. Please buy our next product, when we promise more redemptions and will turn those into garbage in 10 months.

    There are 6 or 7 out on ebay already under "Topps Don Sutton auto" so I'd just list it like that. Only one has sold, and that one was numbered 01/10 for whatever reason. I got the non-numbered version yesterday as well. And while it's hard to expect anything more for a Tyson Ross Marquee auto, a sticker auto on a made-up card is no more interesting to me. I wish they'd change the language on the back to "the signing of all Topps autograph stickers..." since they rarely seem to have on-card autos anymore. Not that I believe anyone witnesses it in either case.

    Really interesting. This adds up to Topps just bait and switch scheme. Oh we promised you a Hall of Famer numbered to 10 super rare card. Sorry, are mistake we lied to you about having it, here take this card you didn't order. Doesn't anybody else see this? Go to Burger King and order a Whopper and they give me a Fish Sandwhich. I go back in for the right sandwhich. I guess some people go back in and say I ordered a whopper, but thanks I really wanted a Fish sandwhich. Come on Topps. Come on collectors Fight back. Say no to stickers.

    So basically - "you know the redemption for that SUPER AWESOME card you pulled from a pack. yeah...we didn't make that. We just needed something to place on the sell sheet to get you people to buy the product. But we have soooooo much mediocre stuff that we don't know what to do with it all, so here ya go. Buy Topps!!!"
    Do not let ANYONE ever tell you that what you collect is stupid or not worthwhile. Collect what you desire!

    Re: New Topps Redemption process?

    These are fracking awesome. I think on the back it should read, This card was produced to replace (insert card description here). And the should say " Topps can't guarantee that this holds the same value as the card it replaced since the secondary market can't be established since the first card listed above was never intend to be actually produced.
    Thanks again for your continued support of Topps products.
