    I think you missed a huge opportunity by not making the "do you agree" question a poll.

    FWIW, UD has been fine for the 2 things I've ever had to redeem, and one of those was a 1992-93 Shaq RC, of which they printed a million, nothing fancy. Topps I think I did 2 things, one came fine, the other was a 2011 Museum Edition Joe Morgan auto, but Morgan apparently stopped signing cards that year, so they replaced it with Jay Bruce, and I was strangely comfortable with that. It's cute how they still have a team-orientation as to what they think is an appropriate replacement. No experience with the others.

    I agree with Panini - 4 for 4 in sending the athlete that I redeemed. Have 4 others with them that I have strong faith that the athlete redeemed will be delivered.

    I disagree with topps' ranking as I'm 0 for 3 in getting the athlete/celeb I redeemed.

    Poll is stupid in my opinion because the sample size probably hasn't opened all the options in the poll. I certainly haven't. Plus Topps is a vast majority of redemptions overall. I think a better poll would be rate Topps redemption practice on a scale from 1-10 and see where it falls out. That'd be valuable for the consumer and Topps IMO.

    Redemptions are terrible and should be illegal unless you get what they say you will get!

    I had some great experiences with UD's redemptions.

    One thing I like about Panini's is the email notice that stuff is shipped

    Beckett's redemption card poll. Do you agree?

    I have never been a big wax breaker, a box here or there, mostly buy singles. Having said that I have probably pulled around 20 or so Topps redemptions over the years and guess how many I actually got? One.. Every other one was replaced with a all but common GU or Auto. In fact, one time they cleared out 5 pending redemptions and sent me 5 worthless Darrin Erstad auto cards.

    Topps used to be pretty good about redemptions. Pre 2010 they were 6/6 on getting me the exact card that I redeemed. Funny thing is that since they got the license in 2010 they are 1 out of the last 11. Coincidence or does not having a competitor not make you try as hard? I'm a small fish in a big sea, but I've gone from buying multiple boxes of every baseball product that came out in 2010, to having opened three this year, series 1 and 2 to get the base sets, and I got suckered into buying Inception which was a huge reminder as to why I don't buy boxes any more.

    I'm not going to say Topps sucks, or they don't care about the customer, but each year they do things that make it harder and harder to respect them as an organization.

    When that many redemptions go unfulfilled, you really have to ask if Topps really had any plans to include the card at all, or were they just bait and switch fodder...?

    Beckett's redemption card poll. Do you agree?

    Interesting, the companies are listed in the order of sales of the companies and the order of number of redemption cards in their products..

    Flawed poll..

    Ask about the redemption online experience, wait time and customer service specifically and the poll changes dramatically.. BG

    Based on what collectors have said...

    Topps redemption online experience? Sucks
    Wait time? STILL WAITING
    Customer service? What's that?

    No, no it would not really...

    The glaring flaw here is that the only way to get somewhat accurate results is if everyone polled had a equal sample size with each manufacturers redemption process. People vote based on what they think/know, and that is usually based on experience. To more accurately put this poll in to perspective is that most if not all voters probably had to deal with the Topps redemption process and Topps only got 18% of the vote out of a potential ~100% that has experienced the Topps redemption process. Conversely I would assume perhaps about 10% of voters have had to use LEAFs redemption process yet LEAF still got 7% of the vote. That means the vast majority of voters who have experienced LEAFs redemption process viewed it as the best.

    I would think anyone who can read between the numbers here would see this as a huge slap to Topps and major kudos to LEAF.

    Out of curiosity, have you ever had a redemption or talked to topps customer service?
