Default After almost a 2 year wait...

I had a redemption for a 2006-07 Black Pack that I pulled from Hardcourt Basketball back in 2006.

It was redeemed on January 31 of 2007. It never arrived.

Finally after several emails and phone calls (and a few months) they tell me they ran out or whatever.

So July 25 of 2007 they tell me put me back on the list to recieve this pack. The put a new code in and everything.

10 months go by.

On May 10 of 2008 it finally showed shipped.

Guess what? It never arrived.

Of course I do the email and phone call thing again and same old thing. They dont know how or when or what or where this pack was shipped.

So I was thinking about it today and called Upper Deck. They dont have anymore Black Packs. But, they said they would send me something.

Now I'm 100% sure UD will send me something super nice for making me wait for so long. They said 2-3 weeks.

Any guesses on what I get???????

A Bryant Reeves Autograph. Or since they dont always send the same sport, maybe a Maurice Clarett jersey?

I think it will be a higher end card as well. The original black cards were great and I would expect something semi low numbered and of some value....but we shall see!

I hope you guys are right. But I have a feeling I'll be getting a Glen Rice jersey card or something like that.

Well I would be more than happy if they sent me that. I think these packs were selling for around $100 when they came out...then I think they dropped in price?

The original ones were never used as replacements. It took so long to fill these orders because the original run needed to be replaced. UD actually had to create a new set to replace the original that grew some legs.

Ouch...I would be very, very angry about that, personally. I've been fairly lucky with them so far..but figure my luck will run out sooner or later.

UD could have sprung for the airline ticket for their representative to come to your house to personally kick you in the junk.

That is not even funny. What would be wrong with trying to make sure your CUSTOMERS are happy and receive a reward for weighting 2 years? Pathetic!

The whole redemption replacement thing is a joke. Here is how I see it :


A.) You almost never get anything of value in return.
B.) You lose money because they go by current BV and if you waited 1 or 2 years the current BV price isn't as high now as it was back then 99.9% of the time.
C.) The "people" filling your request are clueless.

And finally for the millionth time........

UD does not give a crap about you.
