Default Upperdeck Stinks!

So about 3 months ago I opened 2 boxes of SP Game Used and got a Brad Davis card with a very suspect patch in it. Upperdeck admitted that the patch was no good and offered to replace it.



After months of waiting and having them supposedly send a package that I never received. I finally got a package from them today. It contained a Russell Wilson Spx jersey /199 and 2 packs of 2011 Upperdeck MLS. I didn't have big expectations for the package but even with my low expectations I was still let down. I called them immediately and was told that this was a fair replacement. They said they were the same book value and then I asked how they valued the Davis when it doesn't book. Then they changed the story to they used terrapeak to find values. Which I think is also a load of crap, because the Wilsom sells on average around $12 which I don't think is the same as the value of the Davis. Let me know what you guys think

Pretty weak replacement. That Davis, had it been legit, is a really sick patch. SPX Jersey /199 - Wisky uniform? Not cool.

I'm not real big with soccer but I would of thought they should have sent you another Patch at least instead of a jersey. It sucks but I'm pretty sure you're SOL and that was their one and only replacement and that they won't be giving you anything more unfortunately.

I think it's Christine Sinclair. Her supreme fabric cards have mls logos and are orange.

I'm deciding what to do next, I was offered way more for Davis before I sent it compared to the $12 I could get for the Russell. I don't think it was a fair replacement, at this point I would just take the old card back and put it in my collection.

Not fake patches. They just mixed up the patches between 2 players
