OH GOD I JUST NOTICED THIS

I've been refreshing www.toppscards.com obsessively hoping for something to happen, but it hasn't yet. The URL is listed as www.toppsmillion.com on the actual card, but that resolves immediately to toppscards.com. Someone planned things well. Since it's already February 15th on half the planet I should be able to enter codes by now, but I F5 to no avail. While staring at the splash screen I noticed something.

Now the first and probably only thing any true collector sees on that page is the gorgeous '53 Jackie right there in the middle of the screen. That's all I've been looking at. Didja notice what was behind that card though?


1989 TOPPS! Oh nooooooooooooooo!


That weird orange plaque/tombstone thing? All 1989 Topps. Every last card. There's actually ony 6 cards there, repeated twice. But every one of them '89. So what do ya think? Lazy design? The only cards they could find was a pack of '89 Topps and a Jackie? Or some truth in advertising for this giveaway?

I personally would take a mountain of '89 Topps if there was a lone Jackie thrown in there.

Ok, I can't stay up any more. I'll have to try to enter codes in the morning.

I noticed the backward ones this morning but the ones in the orange were just revealed to me. This can't be good.

I have a feeling that this may end up a PR disaster.

I noticed that a few days ago and posted about it on Friday...it makes me very, very nervous. We shall see. I'm guessing the whole site will crash and nothing will be working today.

Hmmm... I just noticed a 1992 Leaf Padres card on the back of one of my yo mamma cards.

I have a cello pack of 1989 topps for equal number of your "Redemption" cards. Better trade now, before you "win" a bunck of worse 1989 Topps.
oh, and did I mention there is no shipping for mine?
muahhhahahaha
This thing is out of control and I love it.
