Can someone do me a huge favour?Hey everyone,
I recently opened some boxes of 2012 Goodwin Champions. It was my hope to hit one of the really cool redemption cards.........and I did! Here's the problem: I pulled an Emtomology card which can be redeemed for a shadow box card with a preserved insect inside. However, I live in Canada and due to customs regulations I an unable to redeem the card and get it over the border. I am looking for someone who would be willing to redeem it for me and when they receive it, send it to me in Canada. I would cover all shipping costs and offer additional payment to whoever is willing to help me redeem this really cool card.

Congrats on the pull. I really hope that you find a way for it to cross the border safely. If UD isn't willing to send it direct because of legal restrictions, hopefully its because they are doing so because of international issues and not Canada specific issues. If its not safe to cross the Canadian border, a private citizen won't have any more luck than a corporation.
Hopefully a nice American can help you out!

Customs is outta control - they won't let through a preserved (and therefore inert) insect? Damn...LF this ITG Decades 1980's Autograph: AMM2 - Mark Messier CAN SP. Also need many Emblems and Numbers from ITG Decades 1980's and may need Quads, Golds or other low print runs from that set.
PC includes Sakic, Vaive, Salming, Lafleur, Shutt and anyone named Stastny except Yan. Also buying Tokarski rookie year cards if priced right.

a preserved insect card? lets hope customs don't tear the card due to the insect. however, if you label it as a trading card and they don't check the package you should be fine. but congrats on a huge pull.

If you are close to Toronto I can redeem it and bring it to you. I will be going to the Fall Expo.

Pulled one of these last year. They are really a neat piece. Good luck getting it across!
