You can do that on the message board and in your my collections account as well. <br />
<br />
Most people also put a note in their signature file.<br />

Redemptions are always a mystery -- in more ways than one. Your best bet is to call them and ask about them -- or request replacements if you're not too attached to those cards. I had a mystery cut that took nearly a year to receive -- sounds about the same for you. <br />

<br />
<br />
If it features an MLB logo, it must be cleared through MLB Properties otherwise they will be hauled into court just like Upper Deck was. Games with cards would be like any other product -- video games, stationary, pens, wallpaper, greeting cards, valentines cards, clothes, etc.All are MLB-approved if they use the logos. <br />

Not sure if you'll be able to answer this or not.&nbsp; I just completed a refractor set of 2009 Bowman Sterling WBC Relics.&nbsp; When I first started putting this set together, they had Jose Reyes in the set, but on here he is not on the checklist, do you know why he was taken out?&nbsp; Also, any idea why they did not make any USA cards for this set?<br />
<br />
Thanks,<br />

Likely just a checklist change for one of countless possible reasons. Perhaps Topps couldn't obtain the USA jerseys -- or perhaps they're saving them for a future product.<br />

<br />
<br />
To show it on the boards, you have to upload it to a photobucket account and use an embed code. <br />
<br />
For it to (eventually) show up in the image database you have to upload it from that specific card's page.<br />

Think my question got skipped.

Your info was passed along to the person who is responsible for adding them. (Not sure if it's been added or not.)<br />

How can I get a hold of Upper Deck? I have tried emails, phone calls none of the line I know work. I want them to send me trades for a redemption but it is no use. 3 weeks now and nothing from them. Please help me.<br />

Hi Chris. Great sticky, by the way. Hopfully this hasnt been asked, as i havnt read every post, but i have a 2 part question. First, is their a way to determine the print run of a non serial #ed card, for instance. Last year, i pulled The David price, White uniform, card # 401B, from 2009 UD series 1. The card books for $100 (High Book), so i know their are at least 25, but how can you figure out if their are 50??? or 500?? Does UD know the production run or does Becketts???<br />
<br />
Secondly, i wanted to know about Press Proof cards. Are these simply concidered parallel cards??? Or, are these the original proofs of a particular card, making them short prints???<br />
<br />
Thank You in advance. Rory

<span style="border-collapse: collapse; line-height: 15px; font-family: verdana, arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; ">The other day I bought a box of 2007 SPx. To my surprise I pulled a Platinum Iron Man 1/1 about half way through. It got even better when in the last pack I pulled a yellow printing plate of Chipper Jones and stuck to it (loosely) was a yellow printing plate for Devern Hansack. On the back of the Hansack printing plate, the card states it is #106. I noticed that the on-line Beckett price guide has no card #106 listed and in the base set #106 is Tim Lincecum. Any clarification you could give would be great!</span>
