Default Expired Redemption Cards - Kudos to Topps! Upper Deck Still Sucks!

I often post recaps of my box breaks here on the forums. I am also a very vocal critic of expired redemption cards, particularly Upper Deck's hostility toward consumers who pull such cards from old product. I thought I would post a positive story about Topps. I recently pulled two expired redemption cards from 2008 Bowman Sterling. I contacted Topps by e-mail and was ultimately told to send the cards in and that they would at least send me something if they could not fulfill the expired obligation. Kudos to Topps for showing that the customer actually matters. Upper Deck continues to remain the scourge of the industry, as they do not care about their consumers or appreciate their hard earned money. Sorry for the rant that is all!

Are you kidding? Right now Upper Deck has the best expired redemption program... I sent them in my Expired 09 sig stars matt wieters pride of a nation and at the Toronto expo they pulled my card for a Mark Messier Shadowbox card... They cleared out an entire glass dispay of cards for expired redemptions...

I really dont think he is joking. UD are scum.

I had a Jimmy Graham auto redemption from SPA. they told me it wont be made and sent me a $5 card. I havent bought a UD product since then and never will again.

Oh and those Grahams went live recently.

I received a case of 06 SPA. Football as a christmas gift in 2008 I believe. Opened them all on christmas and had a few redemptions, maybe 4 or 5. They expired on 12/22/08. I called the day after Christmas and they basically told me I am screwed because thet expired. It was 4 days after the expiration date and they wouldn't do a thing for me!
