Topps has decided to play games with it's loyal customers. By creating a nearly impossible game of chance, "Cards Your Mother Threw Out". Or so it is disguised as such. You see, you as the collector find special cards with codes, go online and enter the code to receive a valuable gift.
Possibly a 1952 Mickey Mantle or as millions have found out a "Virtual Ring". Now that's collecting. No way do you get these magical rings or other "virtual" prizes but, buying the redemption cards on eBay for anywhere from $ 2.95 - $5.00 a piece sure brings back those summer memories.
And so it goes, and so it goesWe've been tracking several schillers in the trading card section. One joker lists the car and he/buddy seems to win it. Then it's relisted and same thing happens, the same buyer wins it.It came to my attention after he won a card I was selling and had already relisted it 2 days before the auction closed.
He is doing this with about 20 items, some, as with mine, he hasn't even won yet.
