There wouldn't have been a thread if OP had gotten Griffin, Luck and Martin.

Exactly

OP, if you got these cards off of the internet, you did this to yourself.

I mean, everyone saw last week how Prizm was seemingly a letdown. Almost all the top rookie autographs were redemption cards. It was also all sticker autos from everything that I have seen. We saw pictures of this a few days before release and it looked like most of the Rookie Premier guys were sticker autos. I don't know why there is shock and awe about this product being loaded with sticker autographs and redemption cards. I slowed down buying Panini football because of this, when I do, I have my expectations tempered. I suggest others who are sick of this do the same. But like people have been saying in this thread, everyone will continue to buy it and complain. Definition of insanity, doing the same thing over and over while expecting a different result.

It sucks but that's reality. I wonder how many people who are upset with this release are going to be buying boxes and cases of National Treasures?

<------Last panini product purchased 2011 DEEE
<------Last FB Product Purchased 2011 UD Legends

If I can fall off the lemming train so can all of you. My LCS as much as I love em, pushes panini products whenever I go in. At least w/mapp going prices will finally come down on release to real market value.

a few weeks ago, I was kicking myself for not locking in at 1300/case, I honestly wouldn't buy a case for 1200 now - I have witnessed over 10 cases busted in front of my eyes.

One case didn't have a single top tier player - literally. No Griffin, Luck, Tannehill, Richardson, Martin Morris - not one guy where you even recoup the cost of the box. Sure, there might be a DE missing his left shoulder pad SSSSSSP worth $120 in there - STILL doesn't pay for a single box.

Must be some sweet cases out there or this is Panini signature series in packs.

If you stop giving them your money because of their shoddy promises/ethics, maybe they'll stop ripping you all off....
This is what I did for roughly a year...got sucked back in and had a lapse...might be back to the boycott after these shenanigans.

Hey, this is a Ebay 1/1 non existent auto error not on card, haha

just went to enter my stephen hill redemption - my only possible on card?

"Oops! The redemption code you entered does not exist. Please try reentering your redemption code again. If you feel this is an error, please submit a general information request and include the card information located on the back of your redemption card with an explanation about the problem you are having.

They'd sell more product by just good ol fashioned honest and straightforward. Contenders is a staple product and sells itself until it gives itself a bad name--like this it appears.

But in all reality, the only way to "stop" them is to stop buying their products--that's it. Sue them? What lawyer in his right mind would tackle something like this? What judge would care about the difference between "on card" vs. sticker?

This is why I haven't bought any Contenders yet. The two players I want--Russell Wilson and Turbin-- are both redemptions. Yay!

Better off on waiting for them to hit the bay in a few months.

Just saw a contenders break from today online. 6 autos, 5 stickers, one redemption. Redemption was for a dual auto, so I doubt that will be on card

this and the sticker topps chrome russell wilson autographs seem to be the news of the day. Looks like a double screwing for collectors.

It takes a couple of weeks for them to enter redemption info so give it a little time.

Day 2 and no sorry from panini, just business as usual. They did give us an extra Tim Benford sticker auto per box, I guess we should be thanking them!

Yes actually there would have been.... I didnt complain once about who I DIDNT pull... It is the product did not deliver as stated and also the dupe autos of scrubs RPS that arent on card.....Of course I wouldnt have the same anger if I got 2 luck.... and 2 griffin..... the product is just trash compared to normal. I had quit packs except for Contenders. Panini just made it easy for me to walk away from the pack part of the hobby for good.... I am not the idiot that will keep buying. I just will quit. I did get Martin BTW... I think the two biggest things are the dupe autos.... to get three and four of 5 different guys in a 12 box case sucks... The on card piece... six boxes without one on card.... I can see taking a beating on a box... but a terrible case is a problem

Yep got the round about answer from David Sharp in an email today. Let's just say I will no longer be buying Panini products!

Have to wonder how much it has to do with players simply not returning stickers/cards, and how much with these companies being cash-strapped.

I would imagine that it makes sense to include something about returning the stickers/cards in a "timely manner" when the companies get these guys to sign.

There's no legal leg to stand on, with their wording on the sell sheets saying essentially "Subject to change", there's no way you can claim false advertising. Due diligence has already been done.
