Last Call: Upper Deck Products with Redemption Cards Set to Expire


One of the more frequent questions we get in our Customer Care group come from collectors who are worried about buying an older product because it may have expired redemptions in the product. I wanted to resuscitate an older program where we would share information about Upper Deck products with redemptions in them that are about to expire. I also wanted to provide a little detail on what some of the better redemption cards are in those sets. This is the “last call” for Upper Deck redemptions set to expire over the next six months so if you are looking to break some older products, you may want to crack these while you can!

Worthy of note, ALL MLB, NFL and NBA Upper Deck products have expired offers in them. Since Upper Deck no longer has a license with these leagues, we cannot honor ANY of these expired offers from these products. When purchasing these older products you are buying them as is, without any type of warranty service so if there are issues with damage, collation, insert ratios or expired offers, we will unfortunately be unable to assist.

Thank you so much for this info!! I think this is a great idea to one of these articles every month or every 2 months. I love the idea of giving us an idea of what big hit redemptions and about how many are still out there to be pulled. Great job Upper Deck!! My daughters and i are so excited to open our 3 boxes of SPX Football 2012 that we are getting tomorrow! We are hoping to pull a RG3 auto so wish us luck. Everybody at Upper Deck keep up the great work and we hope to see you all the the National this August in Baltimore!! We are making the 9hr drive because we LOVE this hobby and love the UpperDeck booth at the National every year!
