So, when people such as myself and I Am Joe Collector speak out about our dissatisfaction in regards to redemption cards, most people reply with, "Too bad, you knew they were expired. The company owes you nothing."
A story comes out about a collector who had a Jeter autograph fade on a 1999 Topps HD card and suddenly Topps is responsible for replacing the faded autograph 12 years after the release date even though there are plenty of examples of this card in perfect condition. There's no mention of how this person stored the card or what kind of protection he used. It's really laughable how people are responding to this. To me, it's the equivalent of asking a company to replace a card that you drop and damage 10 years after pulling it out of a pack. Then again, I think that companies should keep redemption cards for a minimum of 5 years if not indefinitely so what do I know.
