Activate shipping mechanism
I just checked the site and it says you can't get them shipped yet. Yes, I know it's March 15th right now. But we already went through this when Topps first activated the site. It seems Topps is a little slow. And collectors are little impatient. OK, a lot impatient.
Anyway, even though the cards that I have redeemed so far aren't nearly as nice as some that I have seen, I have decided I will get a few sent to me. I know that shipping is $2.92 for the first card and 53 cents for each additional card, and that could add up. But even though I likely could get these cards cheaper, I want to give the process a try. Let's see how Topps handles a bunch of shipping requests. I hope it's nothing like they handle autograph redemptions. I'm not waiting 15 months for a 2004 Omar Daal card.
So, these are the cards I will have sent.
I'm almost at the point where if the Buchek card I get isn't badly miscut like this one, I will be disappointed.
There are a couple of other more current cards that I received in Giveaway trades that will sit in online purgatory for a little while.
Also, I just signed off on a Giveaway trade. I got rid of my 1993 Donovan Osborne card! Yay!
Meanwhile there are a bunch of cards in my collection I can't bear to look at anymore. I keep trying to trade them, but apparently there isn't a single person that wants a 1985 Scott Fletcher.
What I don't understand are the trade offers that sit there for a week before finally dying out. Come on, collectors, pay attention! If I have no life and check this site every day, that means you have to, too. Have some sympathy. My self-esteem is at stake here!
