It's been nearly two years ago now, but some of you will recall that I got lucky and pulled a 2011 Lineage Ian Kinsler auto from a rack pack. If you didn't see that post or need a refresher, you can check that post out here.
Not even a month later, I was in one of the Daily Dimwit's box breaks and he pulled a redemption for the very same Kinsler auto. I don't know why I was able to pull that autographed card from a pack one month and get a redemption card for it the next.
I redeemed the card and sort of forgot about it. One day I got an email from Topps asking if I wanted a substitute since the card was taking so long. Having seen some of the replacement cards other people were sent by the folks at Topps, I opted to wait. Again, I forgot about the card until one day, a small envelope arrived in the mail.
Nearly two years after I redeemed the card, it finally arrived. Good things do come to those who wait.
Or maybe it's good things come to those who forget.
