So, this is about Topps being...Topps.
The Cubs win the World Series. Topps puts out a special 25 card Cubs World Series set. I order the set. It is shipped within 48 hours. So far, so good.
I follow the tracking. The package arrived yesterday. I get home from school around 4:15 p.m. The package is on my porch.
I open the box.
I read over the packing slip. All is well.
I dig deeper in the box for the cards.
I pull this out.
A 2016 Topps Chrome blaster. You can't make this stuff up.
I stare in disbelief at the wrong box for a few minutes and then search out the phone number to Topps customer service. I find the number. I also find that their customer service is only open from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. EST. They're already closed for the day.
I waited 55 years for a championship.
I'll have to wait a few more days for the championship cards.
I'm afraid I'll have to wait longer for Topps to get their act together.
