Default Question about 2006 UD Legends

Does anybody know how much of this stuff was redemptions as I am thinking of picking up 2 boxes for the Fantasy FB promo but I don't want to get hammered with expired redemptions for anything good that I might pull out of it.

Thanks,
Nate

If I remember correctly, UD redeemers are 3 years. If that is true, Heroes was an early product which would mean it is expired. But I am not 100%!

same here. local store had 6 boxes at half price. he opened them and got 4-5 redemptions all past due.

The sick thing was he pulled an octo auto or 6 player auto of cowboy greats redemption and UD told him to go jump in a lake. UD is a great company.

Wow. Just wow.



With all this going on, it seems like companies should be required to say when redeemers expire right on the box, that way if you are buying from your store or dealer, you can tell before you buy.

Well guess I am not going to get Legends then. Maybe pick up some of the Limited. At least Donruss generally will at least send something in return if you pull an expired if they can not honor it. It would be amazing if some of these companies (UD Topps) decided to look at the bigger picture and not stop caring once their product is sold to distributors.

Were there alot of redemptions in the legends?

Good luck Fins...I went with the Score. Might take a beating, but given the options, I figured that was my best option as the inserts can sell well and figured might be enough glossys to get me close to 1/2 a set.

Robert,

I also busted Score and got 2 autos. I also figure that if you can sell the cards for 6 or 7 cents per card you will make your money back. Also you can be in more than 1 group for this promo right? I never got an answer in the thread.

I've sent Pat another message, so hopefully get an answer. When I checked this morning (after I got my email log in info), seemed like a low number of guys in on this. Granted still 2+ weeks away), so it might fill up so a 2nd can be created.

Yes, thats for the Pickem League that blowout does every year (typically prizes are boxes). Think Mike won last year. I was close, but think I ended 4 games back or so (blasted Lions).

Just got an email from Chris

"Hey Robert,
On the survival league, we will open up the 2nd league once the 1st one is filled. Anyone can enter the 2nd league even if they are already in the 1st league. They would just have to purchase another lot of boxes to qualify"

I am going to wait to see if any other offers of boxes are going to be listed for the survival other than the 3 now. If not. I might do a 2nd one getting the score blasters before the season starts. We'll see.
