Upper Deck Mail Days: Redemption Team is Making Big Strides Lowering the Number of Outstanding Cards

By

Pulling a redemption card can be exciting as you know you will be receiving something special from Upper Deck, but it can also be frustrating as you also know you’ll have to wait for it. Upper Deck’s Athlete Relations and Redemption teams have been working overtime however to track down athletes and get packages out to collectors.

These boxes are filled with thousands of packages for the Artifacts redemption requests that shipped out over the last few weeks.

Their efforts result in something almost every collector looks forward to; an Upper Deck Mail Day! There will be a lot of collectors with smiling faces over the next few weeks as Upper Deck receives in, packages and ships tens of thousands of redemption cards out.

Fans have been clamoring to get their autograph cards from top rookies like Yakupov from the Artifacts redemption program.

The biggest program the redemption team has moved through as of late was shipping out all the 2012-13 NHL Artifacts draft pick redemption cards and all the autograph versions we currently have in house. Collectors should be aware of a small uncorrected numbering error on the physical cards being sent for the autograph versions.

The numbering error doesn’t effect the card collectors will receive, only the number they will find on the back.

Upper Deck’s Athlete Relations team is still pushing away to track down some signers fans have been asking about like P.K. Subban, Claude Giroux, Dale Hawerchuk, Eric Lindros, Evgeni Malkin, Bernard Pierce and Ernie Els in particular so we appreciate your patience while we work to get those signing sessions scheduled. And we anticipate the 2013 Goodwin Champions Elements cards should be completed in the coming weeks as well and those are going to be awesome! Thanks to all our fans for your patience with this process and rest assured your Upper Deck Mail Day is coming soon!

The Elements cards from 2013 Goodwin Champions are some of the most intriguing cards we have ever produced where many of the elements needed to be encased in an acrylic for safety.
