A short while back I acquired a Danny Espinosa 2011 Topps Chrome RC Auto redemption from Robert over at $30 a week habit in what was our eleventy-billionth trade. I quickly redeemed the Espinosa, and Topps informed me the card was scheduled to ship in May. I had no problem waiting, and wasn't at all concerned that this redemption story would turn out like others we've all seen. After heading back to the Topps website to redeem a different signature, I saw that the Espinosa had been marked as shipped. I didn't think much of it, as I wasn't expecting it to arrive until May. Within the last week, an envelope arrived with an unfamiliar address. I actually thought it was a pair of redemptions from Panini. Instead, out fell the below beauty.
My first autograph of the former Long Beach State Dirtbag, and it's all chrome-y and on-card! This makes for a very, very nice and different addition to my Dirtbags PC. From redemption time to arrival time, Topps fulfilled my request in about two weeks or so. Not bad at all. Kudos Topps.
