Topps Acknowledges Packaging Error in 2012 Topps Tribute

2012 Topps Tribute Tribute to the Stars Autographs Mike Schmidt 260x186 ImageWhen Topps first solicited 2012 Topps Tribute, they advertised Tribute to the Stars Autographs as being bonus hits on top of the guaranteed autograph or memorabilia card promised in every pack. It turns out they didn't pack out this way.

Topps has acknowledged the packaging error and, to rectify the situation, they are offering collectors who pull one of the signature cards a free pack of 2011 Bowman Sterling Baseball. These packs contain two autographs and one relic card.

In order to get the Bowman Sterling pack, collectors must mail their Tribute to the Stars Autographs to:

The Topps Company
Sports & Entertainment
Attn: Customer Support – 6th Floor
1 Whitehall Street
New York, New York 10004-2109

Each card can only be submitted once. Serial numbers will be recorded to prevent duplicate submissions of the same card. Tribute to the Stars cards will be returned with the free pack.

The offer expires March 9, 2013.

Ryan's collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection. Ryan can be found on Twitter @tradercracks and Google+.

  1. So how the heck are we suppose to know whether been redeemed or not ??? Is there a page where one can check? ty!

  2. Leo (ID 42188) » Topps has not set up a page to check. The best bet would be to check with the dealer prior to purchasing or giving Topps a call. One would think they’d have a record.

  3. Is there a direct customer service number we can call? ty!
