Expired Redemption Entry Update from: 2008-09 Upper Deck SPx Hockey

You might recall back in June we busted a Retro box of 08-09 Upper Deck SPx Hockey. From this break we pulled an expired redemption for a Autographed FlashBack Fabrics Ray Bourque (Expired 12/19/2010). We sent Upper Deck an e-mail a few days later and asked what they could do. The answer they provided was that "Unfortunately we do not honor expired redemption's and they were holding a raffle for expired redemption customers." One of these raffles was in Toronto at the Sports Card Expo.

I went on the Saturday and asked what I had to do with my expired redemption. Initially I was advised to just put my name on the redemption and that they had redemption hours at the show pulling some items from their showcases. I asked if I should put my address and e-mail on it and they said no. I thought this was a little strange and decided to do it anyways. I couldn't stay for the redemption hour on the Saturday so I figured worst case it would go back to California with them and maybe be pulled at a later date.

The other day I received a small package from Upper Deck. inside I found a letter stating that the redemption card entry was pulled as a winner. Not really sure if it was pulled at the show and I just wasn't there or back at the office. If it was pulled at the show it's a shame I wasn't around as it could have been something pretty good to take home. Never the less, having an expired redemption card replaced is a nice thing.
The replacement card was a 2008-09 SP Authentic Nikolai Kulemin Future Watch on-card Autograph /999. Not too bad of a card, not the same BV replacement but coming in from the same year so can't expect much. Maybe it's a Leafs card due to being at the Toronto Fall Expo? Or maybe was just in a pill of redemption replacements. Again, it is nice to have a replacement and to be happy with anything instead of an expired redemption card.
