About 2 months ago I pulled a Mike Trout Saber Stars Auto /50 from 14' Series 2 Redemption... expired may 2017, obviously disappointed...local LCS owner tells me I should email Topps, so I do and get a response saying if they have the card on the shelf, they will honor the redemption and ship it out to me...about a week later I receive the card in the mail...fast forward 2 weeks later and I get a knock at the door from FedEx, have to sign for a package...another Mike Trout Saber Stars Auto /50...so my first thoughts after seeing the OP was Topps is obviously having some issues recently with sending dups out of redemptions...I've been back and forth on whether or not I should contact them, receiving different advice much like alot of posts on this thread...I think I'm going to contact them in the morning about it...I think they will care more about the problem on their end, then the extra they sent me

Panini sent me two of the same card before. I returned one and they gave me points in return (it was through their point system).

To all the honest members of the forum

There is a brightside to this situation. I can guarantee the OP is now on Houdinis radar.

Its only a matter of time. Patience.

The only difference between many (not all) of these moral high-grounders, and the OP, is the moral high-grounders wouldn't have started this thread.

You’re a moron and added to my blocked list. My feedback here is completely fine.

This was my exact thought, someone else eventually will not be able to get that card.

See previous responses from other people. There’s about a 0% chance that all of them get redeemed before the expiration period

What’s the different between this and an extra hit in a pack/box?

If I open a box and get an extra auto, do I need to call Topps/Panini/etc to tell them there was a mistake?

Your assessment there is most likely correct but by not making Topps aware it’s quite possible that eventually when doing inventory they will notice it missing and think an employee took it. Anyways from this thread I’m sure nothing I say will convince you to let them know. Enjoy your cards

That's like asking if there is a difference between (1) getting an extra chicken nugget in a 10-piece and (2) getting too much change back.

Not sure I understand the comparison but either way it would be a company making a mistake.

I am sure a lot of the moral perfectionists will jump on me but if I open a box and get an extra auto, I am not calling Topps to tell them they made a mistake.

The extra hit in a box isn't necessarily a mistake. My case hit in 2017 Ginter was in a box that contained one more hit than was promised. Sending someone a second card on a redemption that had already been filled is an obvious mistake.

He better keep me on his radar as well, cause I'd have kept that sucker too!
Houdini's radar. lol
Some of you guys are pretty bizarre.

How do you know it is not a mistake?

If two nuggets are stuck together do they count as 1? I need a final ruling on this.

One big nugget that was supposed to be two counts as one nugget. Confirmed.

Incorrect. I don't think anyone is defending Topps and not everyone would do the same thing. I had a redemption with UD for a nice The Cup hockey RPA. Six weeks after it showed as shipped, it had not arrived. I went through the process for not receiving it. A month or so later they sent me a replacement of the same card. Fast forward a few months and the first one shows up looking like the package had traveled to the moon and back, but the card was fine. I called CS to see what I needed to do to send one back. They told me to keep it, but had they asked me to send it back, I would have. Because it's Topps or a corporation doesn't change what is morally right or wrong.
Is there a moral difference between seeing an elderly man with a pronounced limp, drop his wallet or some dude driving a Mercedes who just cut you off in the parking lot dropping his wallet, as to returning them? Sure, the elderly man probably needs his wallet more and the other guy is probably a jerk with plenty of money, but right is right and wrong is wrong no matter who it is. The moral thing to do in both situations is to return the wallet. If you have to try and justify a moral choice based on someone else doing something wrong, you are probably making the wrong choice.
