1 Box of UD 2011-12 The Cup
 
I think this will be my first and last high end hockey purchase. The plate is worth maybe $10? The Elias/Arnott goes for less than $20. The Holmstrom goes for $5. The Winnipeg card might fetch $20?

Pretty much %&#%.

On top of that the Martin Brodeur redemption is not going to happen. His agency lost all his cards from this and like three other Upper Deck sets! So I had to describe to them my favorite players so they could send me an equivalent redemption (ugh by Beckett standards). Oh, well, I guess that's the best they could do and it's not really their fault.

I really hope my redemption card is an autograph ... this was a lot of money for three autographs ...

[URL="http://www.beckett.com/hockey/2011-12/the-cup-honorable-numbers/hnmb-martin-brodeur30-8776109"]Here[/URL] is the card in Beckett's database. Surprised the price range is so low, especially considering the card does not really exist.

Right, what I was hoping for is that the replacement is an auto .... no guarantees I guess

Who the eff is Chad Rau? Sorry for your break man...

Hey I'd be super interested in the arnott Elias. Lmk if you trade and what u collected. If not lmk how much

The Cup is a great product but would highly recommend against single tin busts. Only way it works is if your a lucky SOB. The Brodeur HN Auto dual patch /31 is a great hit $120-150 and they should pony up something nice for it, Winnipeg patch trio may suprise you at auction, last one went for $92.00. The dual enshrinements are an amazing hit but the Arnott/Elias dual auto is literally the worst one, it's superbad $20.00 card. You got around 240-280 SV back which isn't terrible given ... at least I hope you paid $400-450 for the tin

Well, for those of you interested, I just returned from vacation to find a package from Upper Deck awaiting me. It took me a while to comprehend what I was looking at as I looked at the card first thinking a mistake had been made but then saw this letter:

I feel incredibly lucky as this product was over a year old when I called them for the replacement. When I had said which players I would accept as a replacement, I basically quoted many if not all of the entire Wild and Capitals roster. I did make it clear that Nicklas Backstrom (Capitals) is my favorite active player so I guess when they selected the replacement they took that into consideration. This is what is being replaced:

And this is the beautiful beautiful beautiful replacement (in my eyes easily ten times the card I would have gotten with the redemption):

This is only my second Ovechkin auto (I paid an arm and a leg for my first) and my fifth Backstrom auto so this hard signed card is [B]very[/B] warmly welcomed!

In collecting so very rarely do I get to express my gratitude and appreciation towards a company. Topps has let me down so many times in Baseball and Nonsports that I can only say: Hats off to you, Upper Deck! I'm sorry if anyone has had a negative experience with them in the past but I think you can agree this replacement goes above and beyond.

Nice replacement!

That's one hell of a replacement. Glad it worked out in your favor. In my opinion UD CS is the best to deal with

mortuus 01-19-2014 12:35 PM

Well if it was me i would be dissapointed, u should have gotten a patch auto card as the redemption from the start but if ure happy thats fine.

2 autos vs auto/patch? Are you cray?

Autocentral 01-19-2014 01:34 PM

Nice replacement!!!!!!!!

[QUOTE=Autocentral;6502977]Nice replacement!!!!!!!![/QUOTE]

Yeah man I'm getting this baby graded! Little trouble in one corner but great for double hard signed card!

JoexBondo 01-19-2014 02:00 PM

I too would be disappointed. A dual patch auto of the best tender of his generation numbered to less than the replacement. But it's all about what you like. Happy you got something you wanted.

Well I guess if people are split on which is better then it's a good replacement :-)

solid replacement.

[QUOTE=eldavojohn;6502659]2 autos vs auto/patch? Are you cray?[/QUOTE]

Yes im crazy for having to wanted a card of one of the best goalies ever.... not really a ovechkin fan i hate him and his shitty auto :mad:

[QUOTE=mortuus;6526264]Yes im crazy for having to wanted a card of one of the best goalies ever.... not really a ovechkin fan i hate him and his shitty auto :mad:[/QUOTE]

Yea verily, his auto is careless and of turdburgler proportions. But, keep in mind, it's most likely a Russian autograph -- is Brodeur's autograph of Killebrewian proportions? :confused:

I'm not a huge fan of Ovechkin -- I'm more enthralled about Backstrom. But I have probably been to ~30 some games that he's played in so ... it's nice to have a second auto of his (my other is from the '11 Winter Classic which I was also at).

It'd be senseless to get into a Brodeur Vs Ovechkin/Backstrom argument so let's just agree to disagree :)!
