    I have a Harper redemption from last year that hasn't been fulfilled and he has live autos in newer products. Topps doesn't care about old products. They want to sell the next one.

    I am still waiting on a Harper 2012 bowman chrome auto and there are a ton of them live and have been for a few months. I assume I will get screwed.

    Interesting observation in that this seems to be the flipper's mantra. Technically Topps is the biggest flipper LOL.

    Right, but he had the Topps deal in place long before right? I assume they are paying far less than $100 per though since they are paying in bulk x 100 with their product lines for the rest of the year.

    Silly that he would turn down $100 for less than a second of work....

    You can bet that topps got in on that.
    Why? Pedro Alvarez has done SEVERAL signings over the last couple of years, and Topps never felt the need to get in on that.

    Topps teased inception images, including puig, in early january, well, well before he could command crazy $ for his autos.

    Well I would buy a box but knowing how topps is turning out to be there is probably a redemption card for a pack of the cards you were shorted in your box of cards to go along with the redemption card for an autograph that was not signed because someone at topps failed to keep on the athletes not signing their cards but they figure to make it up to you by sending you the 99th round pick autograph of some guy from the backwoods of Louisiana who was a gold medalist in dodge ball.
    Saving the hobby world for younger generations to come by beating up all of the pack searchers out there in this crazy world! Pack searchers shall learn to FEAR ME!

    Here's what I collect: NY GIANTS (Rodney Hampton), NY METS (Howard Johnson & David Wright), NY RANGERS, Toronto Blue Jays (Adam Lind), and the Pittsburgh Pirates (my son loves them.....especially Evan Meek who chatted up a storm with him).

What if (TIN FOIL HAT TIME) Topps has no intention whatsoever of getting Puig to sign Inception cards? What if Topps needed a spark for Inception so they promised something they have no intention of ever delivering upon?

    Many can argue that they have done this in the past, but because this was a product I was following closely, it has sparked some personal interest. Puig is pretty much the reason this product is selling like crazy. I think if somoene had the time to do some digging, the results would be rather enlightening.
    This is stupid. Topps didn't sell one additional Inception box by adding Puig to the roster, and they will surely issue all the cards.

    Care to expand on that? By "all the cards" I meant the Puigs only.
