Redemption: More Than I Expected

I posted a few months ago about a surprise purchase I made at my LCS. In one of the boxes were three expired 2009 Topps Finest redemption cards. I decided to send them in anyway thinking that maybe, just maybe, Topps would have something lying around and might send it out to make this customer happy. Well, I got more than I expected. Here’s what was waiting for me in the mailbox.

Three of the following cards were in inside the envelope …

What do I mean by more than expected? I didn’t expect to hear anything. Hey, I’m not complaining. They didn’t owe me anything for these. I was just hoping …

Surprise Purchase: Finest Redemptions

Well, these might not qualify as impressive hits. They might have had I acquired the cards, you know, before the DAMN expiration date! I’ll send them in anyway and see if Topps is in a generous mood. (The website redemption process rejected them out of hand.)

This would have netted me a Colby Rasmus. He’s certainly a good looking young ballplayer.
This would have netted me a Nolan Remoild. I don’t know if that’s the right way to spell his name or not. I know he’s an Oriole and if you are an Oriole and your name isn’t Palmer, Ripken, Murray or Robinson, generally speaking, I don’t care about you.

Oh, what could have been. Redemption #10 was an AUTOGRAPHED TOMMY HANSON. Not only that, but this is a redemption for the Gold Refractor. Why couldn’t the kid have sent in the redemptions and placed the cards in the box? Why, oh why? I beg of you Topps, send me that BIG RED CARD!!!!
