Damaged Hit Sent to Panini for Replacement

 A couple of weeks ago, I purchased a box of 2012 Panini Rookies and Stars Football. I busted the box and posted my cards, but what I did not mention was the damage that was done to the best hit out of the box.

The Slideshow autographed card of Justin Blackmon is one of the coolest looking cards I have pulled from football ever since I have been collecting. Unfortunately for me, just on the bottom of the card, right beneath the Rookies and Stars logo, the clear coating on the front of the card is peeling off.

If you can't see it there, here's a closer look.

Anyway, I filled out the proper paperwork, and sent in the card for replacement. I asked if the card can't be replaced with the identical card, it could be replaced by a hockey card of a player from the Pittsburgh Penguins. The last time I had them do this, they replaced a Kyle Okposo autographed patch card /15 with an Evgeni Malkin autographed card /25. We'll see how they do this time.


  1. Good luck on the return. I hope they do well by you.

    1. I'm sure they will. Every time I am specific with them, they come through pretty big. We'll see. I'm sure this card has a decent "book value," so I should hopefully get something pretty decent in return.

  2. These Slideshow autographs are sweet looking! Best of luck on your redemption replacement and happy holidays!
