    Topps Redemption question/concern

    Checked on the status of a redemption card that has been in waiting since November.

    2018 Topps High Tek Pyroteknics autograph of Yadier Molina.

    When I checked on it yesterday they asked me if I wanted a replacement card of equal or greater value. I've seen a couple of these on eBay so I know they are out there. What does this message mean? They are out and don't anticipate getting anymore or are they just waiting?

    What do I do wait it out or go for the replacement. (been "burned" on Topps replacements in the past)

    Help or opinions welcomed.
    Thanks!
    Rick

    I had a Soto redemption coming to me last year. I also seen the request for a replacement. I did request it as at time it take Topps ever to
    send the redemption cards. I clicked for the substitute and 3 weeks later I got the original redemption of Soto. But that does not always happen.
    If your are not dead set on the Molina you might get something better or at least the equivalent in BV.
    WILL BE ON VACATION APR 16TH-30TH

    I agree with Tony (tglg): I'd wait for my Yadi!
    On small trades I use PWE but'll use a bubble mailer if you ask.
    Slow trader. Please be patient: I love trading, but I don't have enuf time for it, so it takes me a while.

    Check my site: http://www.freewebs.com/frankpell/ for wants and trade items.
    "CMB"'s will be ignored. Sorry.

    I don't know about that. I have never done a redemption card in my life, so I have no experience. I just do know that I see people complain about getting replacements. And with Yadi autos, they sell nicely. Some other players who have similar BVs do not sell for nearly as much. Just from what I have seen, but never experienced.

    Rick -

    I had this happen a couple of times. Once I accepted the replacement, should have waited it out. Once I waited it out, took 2 years, but did get the original card.

    I did call Topps and they offered me the replacement on the phone and they told what they had available, that may be worth your while.

    Thanks everyone. Still undecided. I would really like to add the Molina to my autograph PC so probably going to wait for awhile longer.

    Tough call - if it is truly a card you want - almost have to wait it out and see what happens. Worst case is that they finally cave in the future and tell you it isn't available at that point.

    I don't do a lot of redemptions, but so far every one that I submitted showed up in a timely fashion, whether it was low end or high end.
