Thread: ...Strata Box Break...

    ...Strata Box Break...

    I purchased a box of 2012 Topps Strata yesterday, haven't busted anything in awhile so was pretty pumped up. So i start opening the packs, and in the first pack a couple of the cards are bent pretty bad. No worries didnt have any hits in there. Keep going, same thing bent cards, and going and going. Almost every single pack had a bent card in it. Honestly my biggest hit of the box was a Andrew Luck rookie but guess what its frickin Bent. My 3 hits were horrible some noname for a jersey and the 2 autographs were redemptions. . Worse box ever, i kept everything, i think topps(panini) will get a little email from me later. I will post some pictures up of the cards too. I would say about 80-90% of the box was damage. The lcs employee couldn't believe neither when i opened them there. the box wasnt damaged, must of been during the packaging.

    here is the damage:

    Almost every card is like this

    Hits of the box

    And the biggest hit,

    to my fricking bank account.

    No more for me until National Treasures

    I'm guessing you live in Ontario or BC since the tax was 15 bucks. Makes me glad I'm in Alberta with a measley 5% sales tax. I'm sure they will just email you back asking you to send everything in to them. Good luck on that mess though.

    Sadly, I'm done with this hobby.

    Yeah that's terrible. I noticed some bent base cards in my boxes as well, pretty annoying and terrible quality control on Topps part. Seems like they really dropped the ball in general this year.
