But! It is true in Taiwan. Two days ago, I post one box with 22 rip cards.
Now, I say I should oreder more A&G!
Because there are two crazy case in two card shops.
One bustered 129 rip cards

The other one bustered 123 rip cards

&

&

I am believing HOT case now!

Topps' quality control strikes again. They are incredibly incompetent.

I can hear them now, "Open ALL your cases and save ALL the barcodes, wrappers, receipts, etc. if you don't get a RIP card and send them in. You will get fairly compensated!"

And then here comes all the Jeff Kent rip card replacements (or whoever is the worst guy in the set).

Wow, how wonderful, now there will be over 250 cases without a rip card. Yipee, what an amazing day for the hobby.

I'm starting to think that these rip cards are going to be of no value if they are popping up like crazy......

They'll be valuable to whoever pulls them because they are made in only limited quantities. The problem here lies in the fact that if these cases had 250+ rip cards that means there will be 250+ cases that don't have them. When you are investing the type of money folks are into buying cases of this and you see this type of fiasco it really makes you ill.

I have never listened to "empty" case until now.
Some people ripped one case with two rip cards.
Most people had only one.

There should be a mass recall for A & G.....and all the distributors should comply. If this goes on and people finally start to notice it none of it will sell.........but then again it may sell out because of some cases being fully loaded.

You can't be serious, there will be literally hundreds of cases with no rip card, and once these sellers flood ebay with the rip cards they've pulled the value will be substantially less for everyone else who lists after them. C'mon man, think about it.

We should be even more pissed that these jamokes from Taiwan get their cards a week before any of us and get all of the first card high priced sales.

there are at least 5 people from taiwan selling rip cards right now.

did anyone else get their case yet?

Topps should release these cards in the US First then overseas, I don't get it.

just got off with topps
VERY GOOD LONG CALL
vp of product distribution

they were glad i called, even viewed the posts here and on beckett with me, we even laughed together on the beckett 22 rip cards looking for an english translation

topps apologized, and said to call wednesday if a problem, if you have a problem i have his direct # and he will make it right

he was nice and not pleased
and we talked about the secondary market prices and how they can easily be affected by this
he totally agrees

BUT it's too late

he did say if there is a problem they 99% of the time know about it before it streets and there were no known issues with A&G, so he said he would talk to me wendesday, do some research, search breaks, AND KEEP HIS FINGERS CROSSED
