Some of you will recall that a couple weeks ago I was told by Topps to package up my UPC's and receipts and send them to Duryea. Well I did that. I then received a letter with replacement T-206 mini cards that told me that a supervisor would be in contact me.
Well a week past and nothing so I contacted Topps by Twitter and then by email. It was like a brand new day in that no one knew what I seemd to be talking about. Well Mike from the home office gave me a call today and told me that I need mail all the cards back to Topps. This is a change from what I was originally told. If you have ever seen 3 cases be busted you can imagine what this entailed. Let me break it down for you: 50 cards per pack, 10 packs per box, 6 boxes per case, 3 cases = 50*10*6*3 = 9000 cards.
That is four deep and 3 wide. All the blacks, golds, autos, jerseys, gridiron giveaway, rookie reprints and on and on. It weighed just over 40 lbs and cost $45 to send. Mike said that he isnt sure if he is going to be able to replace the 3 cases and I told him that I have $1500 in these cases. I checked the cards again just to make sure I wasn't smokin crack and yes, the corners are awful.
Bottom line is I get sent a box of jumbo I am going to be pissed off. I have concluded, partially because I have now sunk an extra $45 to mail this that they owe me. Thoughts?
