2007 Sweet Spot Replacement Denied!

                          (click to enlarge)

I just received this letter in the mail from Upper Deck regarding the faded 2007 Sweet Spot auto of Chad Billingsley I sent in for replacement. Flipper ( my good friend and trading partner) received the same letter Friday as well. Out of the eight tins Flipper and I purchased 6 of them contained horrible faded autographs some of which bordered invisibility. If you happen to pick up a tin and pull one ( 70% chance) all you will get in return is a complimentary pack of cards. This coming from a multimillion dollar company that relies on your funding for survival.

  2. A pack of 2009 Series One Hobby. No hits just some base.

  4. That sucks. We spend all this money on product like this, and they can't go a LITTLE above and beyond to make sure we get our money's worth? I always wondered if this sort of thing would be an issue for any autos not on a card or sticker.

    I've never seen one of these sigs in person, does the signature feel like it's on an actual baseball or is it just card stock?

    I believe it's on synthetic leather. I also believe they used leather in the past ( an actual ball) ,and in the recent 09 release. This must have been a nightmare, but they deserve it for trying to cut corners.
