Default Busted the 06 Ultimate.. OH MY GOD!!?!?

I am literally shaking right now.. After busting a case of 04-05 Upper Deck (which was VERY fun and super cheap) I gave in hoping to do well... I only spent 250 on the box which I thought was a good deal and originally planned on reselling the box... after opening a whole case of 04 UD this box was just begging to be opened.
I pulled a sick Tyrus Thomas Premium patches.. and some other stuff..

TWO DAMN REDEMPTIONS?!?!?!!??!?! Damir Markota

=/ =/

KOBE BRYANT JERSEY AUTO /75

WTF?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!???????????????????

Can I call and speak to someone about this? I have NEVER pulled a kobe, Jordan or LeBron auto before and this is hardcore letdown...

UD doesn't honor any expired redemptions. Best you can do is send it in and you get entered in a raffle or something.

I unfortunately had the same luck with a Scottie Pippen Inkredible Inkscriptions.. I missed the cutoff by about 3 months and Upper Deck told me to pound sand. I give props to Panini as they'll honor expired redemptions thus giving better value to their older product and keeping customers happy in that regard.

Don't feel too bad. I pulled a dual Kobe/Jordan auto #ed to 15 that was expired from 2007 Sweet Shots. I didn't get crap.

Its pretty well known that there are expired redemptions in older products and they dont honor them...its kinda the risk you take..not that I agree with It.

That's why the boxes are priced how they are. If the redemptions were still active, you'd have to pay more for the product.

You are buying a box going on 10 years old and getting Salty a redemption is expired. Duh!

This is also the reason these why some of these older products do not go for big bucks.

thats the way it goes sometimes...I'd sell it on ebay stating that it is past redemption and see what develops...maybe there is someone out there who has a way to get it redeemed...

you never know...someone may make you an offer or whatever

better than a (raffle)

That's the risk you take when busting older ud products with expired redemptions. On the bright side you had fun with it.

A product that's almost 10 years old

Did you do your research before you bought the box seeing if there were any redemptions in it?

Upper deck has always head the same expired redemption policy as well as Topps....this is where Panini is the best at because if this was a panini product they would still honor it if it was still avail and if not they would send something else

Also if I heard correctly at the last raffle at The National they said they were no longer doing them....but I could be wrong

Majority of these expired redemptions are already prob gone since I'm sure once they are expired Upper Deck started to use them as replacements

Expiring redemptions suck....They should be forced to give you something.. BUT I have a stack of expired redemptions from UD and Topps and I got the blow off/tough luck response too..

Press Pass is awesome and it sounds like Panini is stepping up an honoring expired redemptions so that's pretty cool..

You're complaining about not getting an expired redemption? You do realize that is the risk you take by purchasing and busting older product. It's expired, they're not obligated to do anything. Panini is the only brand that will do something for you if you pull expired redemptions.

For you to cry about it is crazy. I get that it's a nice card that you're not going to get now, but that's the risk of busting old wax.

Highly disagree with your take on this, you knew going in that the redemptions have been expired for a long time and that UD has no NBA license. What did you expect with a product that old?

I agree that busting old boxes is a gamble because of redemptions.

There's absolutely no reason to be mad at UD about this, it's an old product. It sucks you got a good card that happened to be a redemption, but it's not like UD has just now stopped honoring expired redemptions, it's been awhile and there is a reason they have an expiration date.

Sorry man, that does suck. We've all been there. I pulled an expired redemption for quad auto out of 2007 Exquisite Football - a $450 box, and UD did nothing for me.

Completely disagree with this. As it states on the box you are guaranteed a certain number of hits/autos. When they do not honor the redemption your guaranteed number of hits does not match making it false advertising. You could go to court over it and with some cards they might be worth it.

Yeah, but it's nothing new though. Everyone knows this happens, it isn't a surprise

That's the chance you take with old wax. As much as it stinks it really isn't Uds fault.
