What's The Over/Under?

Sports are back and that means that sites like fanduel and draftkings are running crazy betting schemes to get new gamblers to use their products.

I don't gamble, even when it's a sure fire thing like Kansas City Chiefs not losing by over 100 points.  My problem is I always like to root for the underdog (Hello Pittsburgh Pirates fandom!!!!).

I am deep into enjoying my pizza with the girlfriend watching the Steelers Broncos game and thinking with a 3 point difference, its looking too close to bet on anything even straight up, no point spreads. 

I tend to always be optimistic of the impossible happening, but in the case of today's game I just want the Steelers to win. 

Well, when it comes to impossible and sports cards, often times Topps Customer Support is spoken in a bad light.

I ordered a 5 pack of Topps Now cards that discussed the 100 year anniversary of the Negro Leagues.  
I did this for two reasons.
1)It has Andrew McCutchen on it so I needed 1 for the PC and

2)It has players of teams that are collectable so it could make for nice gifts or trade pieces. 
Unfortunately Topps sent me only 1 of the 5 cards ordered.

I reached out to them via email and through Twitter, but haven't heard back yet.

If you were gambling, what percentage do you think that Topps will respond and send me my four missing cards before the year is up? 0%, 25%, 50%, 100%

  1. Topps isn't having their best year, what with all the shipping issues for the Project 2020 cards.

  2. Although they've had their shipping issues... I feel confident they'll fix this issue. I'd say you have a solid 83% chance they'll send you the four missing cards by 12/31/20.

    1. Can't imagine Semien has received a lot of Topps Now opportunities this year :D
