Default Damaged Card Question

What do you guys think? I broke one tin of Sweet Shot and I seemed to have gotten 2 damaged cards.

I got a really nice Tanguay Stick Signings 13/25... and his #40 is smudged.

I got a Sweet Stitches of Patrick Roy 292/299... and the topmost jersey is off center a bit.

I called upper deck and the return process seems easy... if not lengthy. If they have replacements of that exact card, they scrap mine (literally destroy it), restamp the replacement with the same # and send it to me. If they don't have replacements, well I take it i get a similar card of a different player.

What would you guys do?

On a personal note, I'm not too attached to Tanguay, and planned on selling/trading that card and that smudge seems to be the worst of the two. As for Roy... I used to like him more than I do now after his son's shenanigans and his part in it, but I'm still fond of him and that card.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Given Roy is /299 they'll have a replacement for him. They might have one of Tanguay but maybe not, but I'd send them back as your resell will be effected (more for the Roy than the Tanguay), but I'd put a few suggestions in if they don't have a Tanguay available.

Do they really listen to suggestions? Good idea, worth a shot regardless I guess.

"Dear Upper Deck, I really like triple color patches of Ovechkin, Backstrom, Price, Kane, Towes, Malkin, and Crosby. kthxbye."

I dropped them in the mail on 5/21, sent them certified (cost me $6 and change).

Just wanted to update this post for myself (horrible memory) and anyone going through anything similar. Will update the thread with any new info.
