YES! That's right! No Auto Costume!

In the last box I opened, there was a pack that I left sealed. It felt really thin and I think there was only one card in it! Most of my relics had only base card with it. I'm assuming that's where my Auto Relic should be!

If you contact Cryptozoic they will sort it out.
May even reward you with one of the higher end auto/ wardrobes.

Yeah but it just feels defeating. I like pulling my hits from a pack. That's just the pack ripper in me!

Yeah. Contacted them and here's their response!

Got the big middle finger from them!

Even though when I asked them specifically on Facebook and they replied to me directly and stated the odds were 1:288 packs with very little cases have a chance of having 2.

Nice customer service bullsh*t

Sounds like they are becoming like some other BIG sports companies we know in taking care of their customers.

Open a case on their support site. You might get a different crew on there.

Did you actually open that last pack? Could be a redemption for a case hit...

We're you able to get anywhere with your missing auto costume?
My case had 12 autos but didn't have a auto costume either.

I was thinking the same thing. I heard from other people that the auto costume was just a 1 card pack...

Nope. They said they can't replace it. I'm pretty much SOL.

And the one card pack is really thin. Not costume thick.

I even asked them on Facebook and they answered with pack odds.

Even talked to Miranda and she said I was SOL.

Pack remains sealed.

You obviously don't know what 'odds' means. It doesn't mean if I buy 288 I will get 1. It means 'printrun/288=total produced'

Actually, I'd say you are the one who is wrong here.

It's common in the card world that odds that add up to a case of packs means "1 per case". Just like the ones that add up to a box of packs means "1 per box."

For the company to treat it differently is a little disingenuous, IMO.

Why is anyone acting surprised? It was only a matter of time before this started with them.

And now that they have enough cash flow to secure rights to movies, it's just going to get worse. i.e. inkworks.

Really? IMO Inkworks was the best non-sport company out there and I still miss their products (except for the stickered auto's they did before they went down). Their sets and cards were awesome and from what I've heard from other collectors too they also never had a problem with Allan and his team.

I'm not saying Inkworks was bad. Quite the opposite.

They simply got in deeper than they should have. It's a gamble. They lost.

From their website.

Inkworks is no longer in business.

Easy to say when it wasn't you who got the short end. Talk about kicking someone when he's down.

Anyone buying cases of this product would expect to pull AT LEAST one auto costume card. I would and would be livid if I didn't get it.

To the OP, perhaps you should go through your distributor to pursue this matter. They (CZ) may be looking at you like you're simply trying to get something extra. If your distributor gets involved perhaps they might take the matter more seriously. Good luck regardless.

I see why you're unimpressed, I would be too. I'm actually still waiting on delivery of mine. grumble grumble grumble

Maybe it's a wardrobe redemption or a plain auto? Have you felt the pack to see if there's a hologram shield on one of the corners of the card? None of the base or subset inserts appear to have a hologram on them so if it does then you got something decent in there at least... Surely the redemption would be the best possible outcome? Just trying to look for the silver lining is all
