I believe I received four stantons in the mail: two base, one green, one blue -- all were in top loaders with topps red/white sticker sealing them. No one touch, no seal.

Yeah man, pics or what?

I'm assuming the sticker is reapplied in the center of the toploader versus ready to peel with backing in the envelope it shipped in?

He posted a pic. The stellar sticker is not centered.

Meh, of all the questionable decisions they’ve made on this set this isn’t the worst.

I doubt they’d release stickers by themselves. Opens the set up to increased risk of forgery.

People are mad that they aren't centered. I am just happy mine came in a one touch.

Its a strong strong indication how one end has no clue or Idea what or how things are supposed to be done. A trained chimpanzee would have been able to properly repeat the process.

It's Topps what did people expect? The good news is the actually gave you the card they were supposed to since lots of the times they don't

1/1 solos seemingly missing, notable living signers not in the 10k set, the fact that there was a redemption, plus now the set doesn’t fit in the box they designed for it. So for a 10k set they didn’t even bother making 100 new boxes when they changed set total. Then I’m supposed to be shocked or annoyed by sticker placement? I’m amazed it’s not slapped on the front over his face.

Dak Prescott autopen signatures? Or maybe Panini could toss in some fake Shaquille O’Neal autos? Then top it off with a fake upper deck Charles Lindbergh auto and you’ve got fake cards from the big 3.

Your absolutely right. I had hoped that a product of this price level would be different. As soon as a redemption was involved it opened the door for a FUBAR. Considering the small size of this set and only 2 redemptions, I thought it may have been avoided.

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more?

I'm out. No one is buying my cards from the last round. And it looks like those Ford 1/1s are a no show.

I’m deeply suspicious about what happened with the Fords. Not a good look for Topps at all.

Saw someone received a Topps redemption recently for a Nolan Ryan “Clearly Authentic” card which had been sent for grading first. Why was that ever sent for grading? (It got a 9. Had it been a 9.5 or 10 would it have been sent out or “held back for use as a replacement”?)

I'd potentially buy into a break. It does seem like the Stellar stuff just doesn't sell though... I know I'm staying away from it when I pick up singles. Just a personal preference, I know a lot of people like them.

Seems wrong to use this Shakespeare quote as a question mark

I can't buy in for anymore than $200/slot so I don't think I'd be able to participate despite how tempting it is.

Is there any word yet if this is going to be an annual release? I'm sorta gunshy now after Transcendent just kept rolling and I'd rather wait to see if this comes out again this year.

So there was never a single Ford 1/1 to surface?

Nope. So this break is more for research than anything else.

There's only a handful of cases left until there could be a major issue against Topps for possibly not inserting the Ford 1/1 cards.

Will the major issue be them still selling Star Wars product? Because people won’t stop buying.
