All products with a release date are received prior to that date, but signed contracts stipulate when the retailer can sell and if they violate that contract the penalties can be stiff. Penalties range from never being able to sell the product again and/or fines.

The movie and music industry set heavy fines.

None. My LCS just got an email from UD saying to not sell products early. They mention Retro releases tomorrow and Cup on 9/11.

I don't think you understand. I meant odds UD either has this card in their possession or backdoored it to someone so they'd list it and generate hype the day before release?

Personal opinion is they didn't do it, but not naive enough to completely rule it out.

Naw, UD doesn't need to hype anything up by backdooring any card. I think they sell everything to distributors for a set price so even if the prices jump 100% their inventory is already out..

Default I assure you its no backdoor or anything shady by UD

I busted a box today on my lunch break. They apparently were sold early by mistake. UD has asked me to remove the card until midnight which I have. Its AMAZING the things people dream up. Very nice cards enjoy busting boxes tom everyone. Thanks for all the positive comments on the pull. Its one of my best.

For the kind of money this was up to in a few short hours I would say screw Upper Deck. You have no legal contract or calpability with Upper Deck. The LCD you purchases from is liable and not you as the seller. Did Upper deck offer you anything?

Actually a reasonable explanation!

But.... the card IS NOT jersey #ed!

In 10 years time, people won't want to look back at what year it was released and cross check his jersey number! lol

It has to match the jersey on the card!!

But.... GLWS!

Co-signed. I would've told UD to take a walk.

Default secret service...haha

It was kinda like that. they definitely tracked me down. i didnt take it down for upper deck I did it for my LCS owner. He is where I get all my boxes etc and I didnt want to cause any problems for him. UD did not offer me anything. I was just trying to do the right thing. I can repost it at midnight I am sure I wont have any problems selling it but it wouldve been nice to be offered something from UD. here are the other cards pulled just for any non believers out there.

You think that it would have been 'nice' for UD to 'offer you something'

Really?...

I tried to tell you in the other thread that this was against contract rules for retailers/dealers to list the product for sale in the open market prior to release date ... but you told me I was wrong!

Haha, I wasn't 100% sure, but that is why the auction got taken down ... it needs to be a fair playing ground for all. Even though this OP was probably told not to list but did anyways to try and gain more $$$, he now probably has been contacted privately with numerous offers. So his plan still benefits him either way, but likely ruins his rep with the store a bit. The store is now going to be under scrutiny by UD as a result...

First off, you need to keep everything that was said correct and not carry it over into other areas.

I said the guy who pulled the card can sell it however he so chooses. Upper Deck can't tell people who open boxes what to do with the contents. Upper Deck can tell retailers/dealers/whoever they deal directly with not to sell before a certain date. If these people sell before that date, UD can fine them or refuse to deal with them in the future. Again, nothing UD can do to some guy who gets a box early from his shop, opens it, and puts the contents on eBay before the release date.

UD can e-mail the guy all they want, but there's nothing they can do to him. If they found out what shop he got the box from, UD could take action against that shop. The auction wasn't taken down by eBay; it was taken down by the seller. The seller said he's trying to protect his shop, which is fine. But he was under no obligation to remove the listing.

Is that clear? Your understanding that no one anywhere can sell boxes or the contents of boxes before release date is wrong. You're throwing businesses and third party consumers together when those two groups operate under a different set of obligations.
