At any rate, somehow I found out that Upper Deck has a Facebook page and they were having a contest to guess which of the playoff teams would win the Super Bowl. All you had to do was post a comment on the page of the team you thought would win and you could win boxes, high-end packs, autographed footballs or some singles. Of course, I took the Cowboys and was one of the three people selected to take home one of the three Cowboys singles. One was a Randy White auto'd card. I didn't get that one. One was a Tony Romo Flag Patch (I don't know much about football products so I'm not sure what it was from). I didn't get that one either. I got this...
That is one nice card for a Cowboys fan. It's my first triple auto anything. Mike Jenkins and Anthony Spencer really came on this season for the Cowboys. It's numbered #49/50. I'm really happy to have won it and want to thank Upper Deck for sending it to me. I think the whole giveaway was/is very generous.
I have one problem.
Why would you (Upper Deck) go to all the trouble and expense of mailing this card to me via Fedex and ship it only in a penny sleeve, loose in a #0 envelope. I don't know if you can see it in the scan, but this card has a massive crease in it. It goes from just under Mr. McWilliam's faux signature all the way down to the right at a slight angle and through the SP logo. What a waste!
I appreciate the effort, but the execution was terrible.
