Default What are the odds this card gets made?

Pulled it last night, and am seriously thinking of redeeming it. If made, it would be an incredible card. However, it would really suck if it never is made. How good has Topps been at fulfilling the redemptions for these guys?

I wouldn't hold my breath. Better off selling it.

i feel like harper and trout do a lot of signing though so it might not be too farfetched for it to get made. You could always hold it for a little while and see if others receive theirs

I think that one has a decent chance, I would be more concerned if I pulled a Mays.

I would redeem that, if it were me.

Sell it. But the redeemed card back next year for 70% of what you sold it for.
Profit

Chance is good that will be made. But whether the card will make it to you in one piece is another issue.

It's a sticker auto, right? I wouldn't worry - they probably have a bunch of signed stickers on file...

I am still waiting on a 2012 Topps Chrome Harper Black Refractor from last year.

Thanks all for the suggestions. I think I'll give it a week with a fairly high BIN/BO. Will probably go ahead and redeem if I don't get a strong offer.

Kind of what I am hoping to do. However, with five of these listed, I don't know if I'll get a strong offer.

This is supposed to be an on-card subset. The only sticker I've seen so far is Musial. Though I don't doubt that Topps wouldn't change things up.

Yeah? This is what I didn't want to hear. I wouldn't mind waiting a few months, but that came out nearly a year ago.
