So I had a Topps Rookie Progression Glen Dorsey auto redemption card. I sent the card in at least 2 months ago, maybe even longer. Anyway, I called once a month to check in on the status and got various excuses, the main one was "His agent has not sent them back to us yet, please call back next month"

Well the last phone call I made was last week and I was told the same thing and this time they said to call back on the 23rd as that is when their system will be updated with the new information.

Yesterday I get a package in the mail, open it and what do I find? a BRIAN CALHOUN auto!!! It came with a letter that stated they were sorry for not being able to keep their end of the deal so they are giving me a card of equal value.

EQUAL VALUE?!!??! Give me a break. You couldn't pay me to take this trash card.

Anyway, just wanted to let you guys know. I am going to call them in the next hour or so when they open and will update with whatever information they tell me.

My suggestion? STAY AWAY FROM TOPPS REDEMPTIONS!!

Just got off the phone with them and what a joke it was.

First they told me the Dorsey is worth $20 and the Calhoun is as well. So I pull out my becket and unless Calhoun is an "Unlisted Star" then he aint worth $20, it is worth $12, but the Topps lady did not agree with me.

Told me to send it back and try to get a replacement card which will be random.

She did offer me 4 free packs but I don't want free packs.

What a joke.

Oh yeah, I had to change the title of this thread too <edited for language>

You may be angry with Topps and have every reason to be, but a simple request to not use a word ion the title of your thread does not need rebuttal.

And the change was made, therefore YOUR rebuttal was not needed either.

Did you have anything else to contribute to the topic of this thread?

I just sent it back. They told me they would send me another random card that is worth $20. I still don't even agree with the $20 but no way can I argue that point.

Anyway, I had to send them a copy of their letter and I added a note that a top 5 rookie starter is not the same as a player who may or may not even be in the league anymore and that I would like to get a top 5 rookie in return.

I don't expect my note to accomplish anything but gotta try.

Hell ( is that an ok word to use?), they said it would take 2 weeks to get me the new card, as opposed to the 3.5 months it took originally. I may just keep sending it back until I get something that isn't garbage.

Lineman get no hobby love so i would say $20 for a Topps RP AU may be about the right value
