Well, somehow, a kind person over at Upper Deck found out about my situation. I didn't contact them (and still haven't figured out how they knew about the card) and was going to just let my son have the original card for his Cowboys binder. I received an email from the person at Upper Deck expressing their apologies for the damaged card and offering to send something in it's place. I was a little taken aback at that because I didn't buy the card, I won it. I sent this person my address and this is what I received.

I have to admit I was amazed by all the cards that came in the package from Upper Deck. I should note that they were packed quite securely, protected by card blanks, inside a team set bag, and wrapped in bubble wrap.
I want to thank that person for great customer service and say it was nice to have a good experience when dealing directly with one of the big companies. It might not hurt for UD to promote this person all the way to the top.....I think if I saw their facsimile sig on the back of my auto/relic cards I would feel better about the whole company.
