Shipped.

Shipped? Topps' redemption site says so.

2010 Topps Red Hot Rookie #3 Brennan Boesch

I'm going to say, I was extremely excited about this card when it was announced back in July and right before Basho fell off of cliff. Now it's December. Does that mean I don't care? Well, no. I care a lot mostly because I'm

1. Obsessive over my set completeness
2. I think the card looks awesome

But this is not the card that it could have been if it had been delivered to our greedy little hands as fast as possible. Actually, I guess if Boesch had maintained his stellar level of play than it would have been pretty much the same. I guess this isn't on you after all, Topps.

Still, for a subset describing rookies that are "red hot," the significance of that label is diminished when the card is produced long after their red-hotness has ceased to be, no? Would I feel this way if this were an Austin Jackson card?

Who cares, I guess. I'm just excited that the wait is over. Now if they could only get a move on my Porcello autograph from T-206...

  1. My Tabata (Redemption #2) has also shipped. I'm wondering why it says my Brian Matusz Chrome Rookie Autograph is still "pending". I already got the card a week or two ago.

  2. I agree, the wait time on these makes no sense. It's like they just want to tell you upfront they are going to be lazy.

  3. I logged into my account tonight after reading this post and saw that my RHR #1 has shipped, but #9 is still pending.
