    Someone Explain Topps Redemptions

    - Didi Gregorious autos were live in 2013 Bowman Sterling, Platinum, Topps Finest, Series 2, Topps Chrome.
    - His autos were REDEMPTIONS in 2013 Triple Threads.
    - DG autos are LIVE in 2014 Tribute & Museum.
    - My 3 redemptions from DECEMBER are still pending, while new product shipping has live cards. As the Dalek's on Doctor Who proclaim: Explain?!
    (note: I am not waiting by the mailbox for my Didi autos, I just don't get this horrible process....)

    - Randy Johnson autos were redemptions in 2014 Series 1 & Tribute.
    - I submitted a Before They Were Great & an '89 Mini Die Cut redemption from S.
    - The BTWG arrived after 2 weeks, 2 months later and still no 89 Mini. Same product?!
    - From Tribute, someone listed the Tribute Onyx 1/1 red.on eBay. Didn't sell and he submitted the redemption. SAME WEEK I submitted a Gold /15 redemption. He had his Onyx in hand < 2 weeks later. Then sent it to Beckett. Then listed it again. My gold is still 'pending'. Someone has had a green /25 on eBay for a week!

    I just don't get what they're doing over there at redeem.topps.com (whatever 3rd party Topps has thrown this 'tiring' task of fulfilling its companies promises), it seems so random. They don't get someone's cards in & ship them all out obviously. If I'm missing something, someone please illuminate me.

    Also, their 'Update' blog on tumblr was last updated on February 28th. Must be a quarterly thing!

    It's like trying to explain the cloud. Nobody can explain it. It's a (expletive) mystery

    The only way Topps will change is if nobody buys their stuff. I don't see that happening anytime soon.

    I don't know what's going on with topps redemptions (in scenarios you describe that are similar to me with Panini and Robbie Grossman autos I"m waiting on).

    Maybe Topps packed out live (or shipped redemptions) for those releases that they had enough stickers and are using redemptions in other products because they are aiming for on-card autos that Didi hasn't returned (and since he's at AAA reno, I'd think he'd have more time to sign some autos each day until he makes good on his contract with topps).

    I'm pretty sure that Topps does all their own Redemptions stuff in-house, not by a 3rd party company. Last year, in the spring, they cleaned out their "Customer service" department, hired a new Manager, etc. It seemed like things got better in the late summer but they're back to crappy Service now...

    It's getting old. I have 5 pending of both active and retired players with both autos and relics. No rhyme or reason. I have scaled back on buying products. Can't sell redemptions to fund buying new. Oh well.

    I have a similar scenario. I have two Derek Jeter redemptions from 2013 Topps Museum Collection for Canvas Box Toppers. Topps claims they're not waiting for jerseys or autos, so then whats the hold up? Every time I call customer service, they tell me they have to check the status with some other department within Topps and that they would email me the results within 48 hrs. Guess what? Still haven't received one of those 48 hr. emails!

    Goodluck with Topps they are an absolute joke. They don't give a crap about fulfilling redemption cards I am waiting on 10 of them all of Matt Holliday. 2 of them are from TTT from 2011 I recently just called again for about the 15th time and all they could say is oh sorry the player hasn't signed anything yet. But he has autos in heritage from 12 and 13 that were in packs. So goodluck I am personally not buying anything new from Topps and haven't purchased anything new unless it was already out on the table
