Topps Announces Buyback Promotion – The following communication was received from Topps.
Dear Hobby Shop Owners,
In celebration of Small Business Saturday, Fanatics Collectibles is pleased to announce an exciting new offer which expands on our efforts to excite and delight collectors as well as drive significant business to hobby shops and generate overall enthusiasm in the hobby. We’ve included more details below and while this is completely optional to opt-into, we hope you’ll participate!
Offer Overview: We will be selecting 1-2 base cards (and select parallels) from a 2022 Topps set and offering store credit for each of the cards redeemed at a local hobby shop (Saturday, November 26, 2022 through March 31, 2023). We aren’t yet disclosing the specific cards or credit amounts as we will make the announcement next week through Topps’ social media channels and email all participating shops with the information. Once the offer is live, we will have a dedicated website that shares all details for customers and provides a store locator with participating hobby shops so they can find a location near them.
How It Works: Participating Hobby Shops will need to have or create a ComC account, accept the qualifying cards in exchange for store credit and then will promptly be reimbursed by ComC once ComC receives and verifies the cards.
What You Need To Do: To sign-up to be a part of the launch of the offer, please fill out this opt-in form by Wednesday, November 23 at 11:59pm PST. More details and the terms and conditions can also be found within the form and in the attached Topps Buyback Offer PDF.
Who is Participating: Our hope is that most hobby shops will want to participate. We’re excited to have a few hobby shops on board already, including RbiCru7 Sports Cards & Collectibles, Mike’s Stadium Sportscards and Big League Cards. We hope you’ll join as well!
Next Steps: If you qualify and choose to participate, please note that we will follow up with a full breakdown of the offer, including a toolkit of promotional assets that your business can leverage on launch day.
Additionally, we will be holding a comprehensive, live information session to go over the offer in detail and answer any questions you may have on Tuesday, November 22 or Wednesday, November 23. Details to join a session are included in the opt-in form.
