A few weeks back I had a few left over MCG cards that I thought I'd redeem before I forgot about them. As I was going throught the stack I came across 3 cards that wouldn't work. After looking a little closer I noticed that each code only had 8 characters instead of the 9 needed. I was a little miffed. I thought about ranting about it, but with all the problems Topps has been having with quality control it would have been just another drop in the bucket. So I wrote a nice little letter to Topps put my cards in with it and sent it off to there consumer services address and forgot about it. Then a few days ago I got a letter from Duryea PA. Mmmmm. And lo and behold 3 replacement code cards all had 9 characters. Well I got these before the big move so I figured I better redeem them ASAP and here's what I got.
One 79 and two 80's.
Hohum so much for 52 gold.
Still it was nice of Topps to replace the cards and they did it fairly quickly too. I also got a form letter with my name on it telling me how to submit cards in the future. Is that foreshadowing?
