[COLOR=Red][B]Topps announces they will release the checklist on... Tuesday. The day before release - we will also have the checklist from Taiwan on Tuesday so thanks for nothing.

Please, please tweet Topps your displeasure![/B][/COLOR]

[URL="https://twitter.com/CheapFunBreaks"][B]Cheap Fun Breaks[/B] ‏@[B]CheapFunBreaks[/B] [/URL] [URL="https://twitter.com/toppscards"]@[B]toppscards[/B][/URL] Can we please have a 2012 Bowman Chrome Baseball full checklist? RT if you agree Topps needs to respond with a checklist!

Maybe if we can get enough messages Topps will notice. I know whoever is on their twitter is very active.

If you would rather write your own tweet to Topps, lmk and I will RT your message also.

Thanks all, we have 8 retweets and 6 favorites so far. I think that is the most for any tweet I have ever sent (except maybe that Daniel Norris tweet about the "I'm too sexy for my sportscard" tweet.)

With the wrapper redemption, I know all drafting group breaks need the checklist very badly!

Not sure if the favorites help exactly... but I do know the tweet gets more attention if it hits 50 or 100 favorites.

Fav'ed and RTed

This is a good thing. Everyone hop on it and make Topps get off their complacent asses :)!

houdini 10-07-2012 11:52 PM

Cool update, @brentandbecca just retweeted the message! If you are not already, you should follow Brent. Could his 1526 followers be wrong? :)

Gibberish 10-07-2012 11:57 PM

I think the actual issue will be Topps doesn;t care.
Oh the days when more than 1 company could produce a MLB Endorsed product

I remember this

[I][B]By dropping Upper Deck, M.L.B. hopes that Topps, under Michael D. Eisner, the former chief executive of the Walt Disney Company, can invigorate card collecting, especially with young fans. The league also believes that one cardmaker can end the confusion of competitors selling multiple card series in hobby shops and big-box stores.[/B][/I]

I guess 1 cheap product per year,affordable by the average kid is enough for the MLB :)

Just RT'd it. Good work on this. No checklists is inexcusable, and yet they do it over and over on releases.

EamonKid 10-08-2012 02:24 AM

Wait... so the auto checklist they released was no good???

[QUOTE=EamonKid;3439280]Wait... so the auto checklist they released was no good???[/QUOTE]

The auto checklist is fine, I imagine.

Look at all the TBD on the rest of the prospect checklist.

Jaypers 10-08-2012 10:15 AM

This campaign is moot.

I found out they will be releasing a series of announcements this week, including the revelation of the BC full checklist, on their FB page.

bigbaseballboy 10-08-2012 10:27 AM

"I believe we released auto checklist, expect balance released this week. Thanks." from Topps.

Zoop 10-08-2012 02:29 PM

Did my part. Do yours, America!

VWBUS1978 10-08-2012 02:46 PM

We should all write the MLB/MLBPA and demand that ANY AND ALL MLB related stuff be produced in the USA... that includes TOPPS/Majestic/Nike---- EVERYTHING

tweet them the above statement^

this is going to be my mission soon, if they keep it up.

EDIT: Removed my dumb comment.

Oh look, it is working. :eek: They never responded to me... or any of the 40 RT. You can bet they noticed though.

[ATTACH]107370[/ATTACH]

Also noticed they have a TBD date on when they will announce anything. Looks to me like they are pulling the same BS...

Collectors - Your BC checklist is full of TBD. Could we please have a full checklist?

Topps - Yes, we will announce the checklist this week!

Collectors - When next week?

Topps - That day is TBD.

Topps: Find the full checklist October 17th, in packs of 12' Bowman Chrome.

HAHAHAHAHHA

[QUOTE=houdini;3440447]Haha. Thank you for announcing that my campaign is moot! Then pointing out that it worked. :)![/QUOTE]

Actually, they told me about the forthcoming announcements over a week ago.

houdini 10-08-2012 03:43 PM

EDIT: Removed my dumb comment. I got offended :rolleyes: and said dumb stuff.

uberfatty 10-08-2012 03:43 PM

Thanks for doing this Houdini (and Jaypers and everyone else). this is going to make the group break drafts 10x easier and increase our chances of getting blue wave packs!

[QUOTE=houdini;3440686]Whoa. Look at you!
Pretty impressive.
So, if you already knew, then why didn't you announce it?[/QUOTE]

CATFIGHT!!!!!!

WilsonValdez 10-08-2012 03:51 PM

They don't care about the consumer when every idiot and their mother pre-bought the sh*t out of it. Erego, no checklist until they good and well please.

are you and jlzink subscribed to some mugshot avatar website or something???

Jaypers 10-08-2012 04:01 PM

[QUOTE=houdini;3440686]Whoa. Look at you!

Pretty impressive.

Unaware of your status, I went ahead with this Twitter campaign. Must be pretty laughable from lofty heights, but low and behold it got results - even though you proclaimed it was moot.

I am perfectly capable of missing announcements, but it seems like Topps didn't post anything until a few hours ago by twitter. Even Brent Williams hadn't heard anything. So, if you already knew, then why didn't you announce it?[/QUOTE]

The source I use at Topps asks I don't make certain announcements too far ahead of time. Some I can, but others I'm asked to wait until it's about to go public.

No catfight from this end. Proceed with the campaign.

I used the word 'moot' not to lessen your efforts, but to let everyone know it was already in the works. In retrospect, I could have used more tactful language.
