This May Be The Worst Topps "Relic" Screw-Up, Ever.

I'm not going to tell you how to spend your money, and I'll be honest with you, Topps Sterling isn't a product that I'd ever buy anyway.

But if I plunked down $250 for a box of Sterling and pulled this ... I'd never buy a Topps product again.

There was a time when crimes like this were dealt with accordingly.
