The card companies have been pushing around the collectors for years. Forcing sticker autos and other over-produced crap at us and expecting us to shut up and take it. And we have and that's our own fault. We just have to have the new stuff, whether it's low, medium or high end. There are always people that have to get it a.s.a.p. Kind of like these redemptions for what will amount to thousands upon thousands of nearly worthless cards.
The whole thing leaves a sour taste in my mouth. If the redemption period for the Giveaway was going to be delayed due to the holiday or whatever reason, then put a FREAKIN' note on the site. It's not that hard! Topps knew something was up when they took the countdown clock off the site. Well, guess what...
"I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore!" Well, I'm ticked and I'm not going to take it as much.....well, that's the plan at least.
Tick, tock....tick, tock.
