    Five Year Wait Is OVER!!!!

    This was a card that I thought I would never see. I bought the only copy of the redemption card that I ever saw way back in early 2008, redeemed it...waited, waited, and waited. 18 months later, I called Upper Deck to find out if it would be made and was told that because they had exhausted their supply of sticker autos and couldn't come to a new agreement for more, it was not going to be produced. Down-hearted, I requested a replacement and that was that.

    Until two weeks ago.

    Out of the blue and causing me to pick up my jaw, it did appear on eBay. A quick PM exchange put on a BIN and the deal was made.

    And here it is...



    This probably won't mean much to a lot of folks out there, but for me this is a major void in the collection being filled. It certainly looks a lot better in the slideshow than this...



    Good times!

    Very nice. Glad to hear a happy ending to an awful redemption story. I have had to do the same thing once, and it would drive me insane to see the card surface a couple years later.

    My real concern was whether they'd use Habs stickers to finally produce a small number of Sharks-era autos - his 05-06 SPGU base parallel /5 was never produced, nor was his 05-06 Hot Prospects Shield.

    wow very nice, congrats! I wonder how many total cards were made, if they were short of the stickers, wouldn't there be a chance that fewer than 50 would have been actually sent out?

    Way back in the day, yeah. My replacement was a Kyle Chipchura SP Authentic RC and a Larry Murphy Beehive Signature Scrapbook. Yee-haw.

    That's awesome, congrats! Also frustrating for collectors to randomly find out years later, but still very nice too see it being fulfilled.
    Collecting: auto's and game used patches of Jari Kurri, Grant Fuhr, Paul Coffey and other 80's Oilers. Also looking Ed Belfour autos. For all players, it doesn't matter what team they are shown with.
