A couple of weeks ago I wrote about my disastrous Topps redemption replacement. Originally, I was going to keep it and try to get at least $10 on eBay before a reader suggested I should call Topps’ customer service. That’s exactly what I chose to do and after a pleasant 10-minute conversation with Topps, I was told to write a letter and send it over to them with the card I recieved.
Now, I wrote one heck of a little letter and was expecting great things. After all, I am not rich and these days Andrew Miller autographs are no longer cheap so I should be rewarded for beating the odds by pulling a redemption of my favorite player, no?
Well, I asked for a 2007 Finest Autograph parallel (since I had the regular version) and today I got a rejection letter from Topps, along with my second and final redemption replacement. In case you are wondering, it’s an Andrew Miller 2007 Topps ’52 Rookie Cup Edition Gold Refractor (#’d 40 of 52). It’s an awesome card and unless there are mysterious Superfractors I’ve never seen, it’s the best Andrew Miller parallel from the set.
It’s still not an autograph and that is what I was promised.
Topps, you have let a longtime collector down.
