do you think, seeing as there are major issues other than minor chipping, that some of these issues would have been caught during pack-out or quality control? and if noticed then, would they continue to pack them out?
that is kind of a double sided question because they absolutely had to notice huge dents in the edges of booklets and other cards. yet, they continued to pack them out into boxes.
edge chipping, i can live with on thick stock (ie. Bowman Black Autos) but huge dents and corners folded over, not so much.
Yeah as far as the corner and edge damage, that is inexcusable. I'd like to believe that this wasn't present during the packing out process and was possibly caused by insufficient packaging. I'm still waiting to see if this excess damage is a trend or an exception. With release date upon us it will be interesting to see what % of people are unhappy with the condition of their boxes.
I love high-end baseball. Its some of the only stuff I open and collect. Where else can you hope to get a bat plate of Babe Ruth or a dual mlb logo tag auto of Trout or Harper?
As far as chipping goes, I just come to expect it from thick stock cards with dark-colored borders. There are plenty of things wrong with the hobby, chipping on high-end cards of thick stock is pretty far down my list of complaints.
