Default Thoughts on the cost of the XRCs and other Redemptions

Anyone who has had a Kyrie auto show up, saw that it was FedEX. If it was a common auto, it comes USPS. With there being tens of thousands of XRC auto redemptions, with over a thousand Kyries, think of how much Redemptions cost Panini in shipping.
Another point. What is the tradeoff between having a product out on time, or having plenty of redemptions? It has to cost them hundreds of thousands of dollars per product to honor redemptions.

The cost is already factor in high box/case price. But most importantly, there are a lot of people giving up on the wait and ask for replacement. This way, if they make 1000 redemption for Kyries, they don't even need to ask Kyries to sign 1000 copies. 500 is more than enough due to this insane waiting time and very short expiration date.

Yeah I always thought that also the cost of redemptions is huge .
But panini probably pays like $3 a package for FedEx

I mean if they had no redemptions then they would probably have had kyrie sign double the autos .You have alot that will expire and be no good .
This holds true with alot of these products that doesn't sell as well .
Plus the lower end guys I bet they don't get redeemed as much

Those un-redeemed Kyrie auto can be used for another redemption replacement. The whole cycle will go on and on.
