Well just to close out the faded Jeter autograph story. They guy who had the issue mailed me these photos showing what he got in good faith from Topps. Here is what Topps did as a their gesture for issuing a card autographed with a sub par pen of their cover boy Jeter:
Yep that’s TWO packs of 2011 Topps Heritage Minor League trading cards. When he last finished contacting Topps, he really thought he was going to at least a pack of tribute or something. Instead he got $6 worth of packs and about $1 worth of cards:
There is a silver lining to this, he is selling it on eBay. Seriously though, I have to give a big thumbs done to Topps, they just should have not sent anything. I just don’t understand how they couldn’t have sent some unclaimed and expired redemption card? Even a NPN card would have been better than this. My heart goes out to the guy, a shitty Jeter vanishing autograph and 18 shitty cards. WAY TO GO TOPPS!
