Default Complaining about a Topps Redemption Replacement

Do I have any chance of getting something else?

Kinda pissed off here - How can they seriously think a fair replacement for a Five Star Jim Brown on card auto can be a POS Jimmy Garoppolo sticker auto /150? Topps is by far the worst with redemptions from my experience.

Damn that is rough. Especially being a HOF collector.

Were you one of the guys in the thread about those Five Star Jim Brown's a while back? That's one of mine that I took a replacement for at that time, figuring this is exactly what was going to happen. I got a decent Joe Namath auto numbered to 50, or something. This really stinks, but I don't know why people thought topps would give a crap, and spend a dime, trying to fill long standing NFL redemptions.

Sorry to hear of your misfortune. If not for my Garbage Pail Kid exploits I'd be 100% away from Topps at this point in life. (actually buying wax, not singles)

Not sure I saw this thread...I definitely would have preferred the Namath. it's just mind boggling how they don't even ask they just send random crap.

It's a Topps Chrome Ref /199 with a 1 color "bonus" Gio Bernard Jersey. It's a joke. I cannot wait to see what I get for the pending Jim Brown Five Star Quotable...

I think I was that guy that had (2) Jim Brown Five Star redemptions. Maybe almost a year ago I got them replaced w/ a Drew Brees Five Star Auto & Deion Sanders Five Star Auto .... Of course I'd take the Brown over either of those, but I was Ok w/ it considering I know Topps could have really screwed me over

Those aren't bad replacements either. I was pricing the Jimmy G and it seems like $40-$50 is what I can expect. I think Brown on cards are at least up to $80-$100 for a five star.

Yeah Jim Brown's Autos have really gone up the past few years since he doesn't sign much anymore. I got the (2) Five Star Autos for like $45 - $50 each close to when they came out (Why I was even more ok w/ the replacements). They - along w/ all JB autos really - have increased in price since then though like you said. I have like 10+ Brown Autos & maybe all of them I bought between $40 - $50 a few years ago ...

Edit: And wow, just searched Ebay and yeah they really have gone up. Basic Autos of his now are in the $80 - $100 range. About 2x what they went for a few years ago. I knew they were undervalued before, it was crazy to me how low the prices were before ...

You got that right. Majority of my Browns were purchased in that 50-60 range too. I thought he was really undervalued before so I was grabbing what I could.

He was, easily, one of the best flips for years. It was absurd how low his autos went for around '09 to about '11. The market was flooded and, when the market was really not paying attention, his stuff that was plentiful, like SOTT, etc. could be had sub - $40. I kept the best and slabbed 'em all.

I feel your pain, they just shafted me too with a Dual Shield 1/1 booklet from five star with a Blake Bortles finest auto /25 - It's ridiculous that they think they can just replace with anything they have lying around. I have two more redemptions, an Earl Thomas Definitive patch auto and a Marshawn Lynch five star auto that they better fulfill or I will be raising holy hell with them.

Wow, you aren't kidding. I bought a 2010 Five Star auto/35 for something like $40 a few years back. Just checked eBay and it looks like $160 is the last one sold.

You're right though, this autos were weirdly undervalued there for a while. My 2010 Five Star is an absolutely gorgeous card, on card auto, and Brown is from those old days where guys actually signed their names with beautiful penmanship.

Glad to see his cards are getting their due!
