I don’t know if this is public knowledge or not, but apparently all those Million Card Giveaway cards aren’t just sitting around Topps HQ. I guess I should have known this, and yet I was still surprised to learn that my delayed shipment of cards is due to them not having the cards. See the contents of the following email from Topps Support:
Thank you for your inquiry. Please note some older cards in your order had to be re acquired in the secondary market in order to uphold our standards of quality. This process has taken longer than expected, we thank you for your patience and anticipate the order will be going out within the next few weeks.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact our Customer Service team…
So, yeah, did I miss this being common knowledge?
