Just received my Landeskog SP Patch /100. And its damaged :(
Hey guys -
You can take a look at the card in my bucket under the SP patch autos. SP and Upper Deck are killing me!
Last year I was lucky enough to pull a Hall SPA patch. The card was badly damaged, exhibiting that flipped right edge that most of last year's patches had. But this was really, REALLY bad. Like the top layer of the card was folded over. I had to contact Upper Deck and after what seemed like 6 months, I had to give up my Hall, and in return I received a bunch of stuff including a Seguin Ultimate, Stamkos Cup patch auto (scripted swatches) and ultimately I was happy with the value, but lost the long-term investment of the Hall.
Now here comes my Landy. I was joking with friends that Avalanche patch redemptions are awesome, because you're most likely going to get a cool looking patch (kinda like Blackhawks). I got a 4 color patch, which was thrilling, but that soon wore off when I noticed the bottom right corner is MASHED as if it had fallen from a significant height.
What to do, what to do.
UPDATE: Called UD, the representative told me to scan the card and damage, and they're going to see if they can replace it. What a pain.
UPDATE 9/25: No one replied to my email so I called and once again spoke to the same representative. Tons of confusion going on over what I thought was a simple case. Over the phone, he created a case for me, emphasizing that I want a replacement with a comparable patch, and if there's no Landy "comparable value SP patch auto" (what the heck would that be? Henrique?). So, armed with my case number, I am shipping, at cost to me - 15 to 20 bucks - a 4 color Landeskog sp patch BACK TO ITS CREATOR.
This feel so wrong and nerve-wracking.

I think that's where this is headed. It is a total heartbreaker to get the patch you were hoping for, and this giant company can't even do basic quality control before shipping it out.

I just got some FWA from them. I hate the envelopes they use.
Did they send it in those recycled paper thing that is 10 times the size of the card ?
If so you know how it got damaged

*UPDATE* Well Upper Deck definitely won me over on this one.
I just received a replacement 4 color patch that is even nicer (kinda has an "arrow" look to it) and they included a regular /999 auto Landeskog. Amazing.
So, took roughly 2 months, but in the end I'm super happy.
