Default Another box of 11/12 SPA Two more missing hits

This is getting old...It's time for me to quit this product I think since I either have really good luck or really bad luck. As you may recall, my last box had 0 autographs, this box had 1 at J.P. Dumont SOTT...I guess it's time to call UD again and let them know that their QA department is garbage.

Ohh, seriously? Lame. Sorry to hear that. And Dumont? They must be getting desperate for signers.

I can't understand why people continue to buy this product.

Yeah I have finally learned my lesson, too bad it cost me $200 in order to do it.

Probably because there's that 1 in a gazillion chance of Gretzky, Orr etc., and you won't find them in the unlicensed stuff and Panini, both of which have also made crappy products this year. Minaswell throw it at this stuff and cross your fingers just like all the rest.

Yeah I got lucky, the first pack of this stuff I opened I pulled that Orr, Hull, etc...Sign of the 5 Times auto. I should have stopped there and not dropped another $300 on the product, but oh well you live and learn I guess.

Haha! Me too. The very first pack I opened was the Crosby auto. Thankfully I stopped after 2 boxes. ;-)

Still not worth it IMO. Too many dud boxes.

yeah I had 2 boxes with nothing, bought them at a local fleamarket from a dealer who got them from upper deck. I called upper deck and they said there was nothing they could do about. Didn't really like spa anyways

See this is concerning, I loved SPA last year? It has got to be a problem internally, hopefully it's because they were concentrating so hard on the Cup.

Did they give you a reason on why they couldn't do anything about it? I called them for both of mine and they were very cool and said they would be sending out replacements.

Do Authorized dealers sell this stuff at flea markets? Not up here.

all they told me is that if it wasn't from an authorized dealer there isn't antthing they can do. I'll have to check but I believe he is. They did tell me that I would have to send the holograms from the boxes and the dealers number.
