Default Upper Deck SPA Patch Auto Set Mailday

Won the redemption for an entire set of 2009 SPA Rookie Auto Patches a while back for $1,200. Redemption said special upgrade set would be sent. This arrived today:

Scans:







Question:

Sell as a set or break it up? What would you do?

What does "special upgrade set" mean? Also sucks that the 2 best cards came back with 1 color patches.

I think your gonna make the most breaking it up, but throw it on the bay with a high BIN for the set and see what kind of offers you get

Wait a minute - you got an entire EXQUISITE set of ARP's for an SP AUTHENTIC redemption? I'm confused, but if that's the case, holy balls! Well done! I personally would sell them off one at a time, but it might not hurt to try it as a complete set with a high BIN/BO just to see what might roll in....

I think the fact it was supposed to be SPA and came back as exquisite is the upgrade part.

Silly question,but SPA or Exquisite?

As for selling it,I'd break it up. You might find people wanting to upgrade patches on certain rookies

Oh wow, completely overlooked the part about it being an SPA redemption.

Congrats Rob!

UD still sucks though

My guess is this is how UD is handling the screw up with the SPA Patch Auto set redemptions since they were supposed to be /5 and then the /5 cards were packed out.

That has got to be one of the best mailday threads I've ever seen on these football boards, congrats to you!

If you are planning on selling it, to maximize value, breaking it up would probably be the way to go. But, of course, selling it as a set would be much less of a pain. But I'd be very tempted to just keep that in my PC if I could!

I would break it up. Also you may want to wait until camps open or until September to sell. Some of those rooks come out and have big first games you will def pad the profits.

How about this idea:

Sell off the Sanchez, Stafford and any other one colors and upgrade the set to all multi-color patches, then sell off once the season starts?

If you can get a hold of the guys in Hong Kong who are faking the Peterson Exquisites and do them a favor, maybe they will "upgrade" the four 1 color patches you have for absolutely nothing in return. Then flip the whole set for even higher profits. Stafford and Sanchez logo patches for everyone!!!

Your call, its your set. Obviously with the amount of product you break you know what you're doing too, so do with it what you like! But seriously, call those guys in Hong Kong.....

Oh my! I find myself speechless....absolutely beautiful.

I would follow what most of what the others have said - put up a very high BIN and people will email you with offers for single cards. Then, it's in your court.

Damn, what dirt do you have on Upper Deck that the rest of the world doesn't? If that's even possible these days, lol.

Your ICE case break was incredible and what a surprise this must've been!

a whole set would definatly bring more.. breakin it up would ruin it.. some of those guys only sell 20 to 30 a piece... im sure leaving it together would be better off
