I follow them on facebook as well and they're all over facebook and twitter excited about their new project being "redemption free." What gets me is that there are still redemption cards! They just renamed them to "exchange cards." C'mon...seriously? This is what they posted not too long ago on twitter.
"With the exception of the "Trade Upper Deck" exchange cards, 2012 UD FB is #redemption free. All auto content is LIVE in packs."
Is anyone else irritated by this? They took the redemption card, took away the ability to redeem it online, put a dumb picture on it, and renamed to exchange card. I applaud them for trying to go redemption free, but I dislike the way they're trying to do it.

Would it better if they just acted like SAGE and ignored the fact that the number 1 pick was not included? Im confused to be quite frank.

!!!!Warning for those who might actually go out looking for these, there now seems to be 2 versions of the card. !!!!!!!
- One is a SILVER version, the "TRADE UPPER DECK" graffiti is in silver. These are good for a rookie card of a "First Round Draft Quarterback".
- One is a GOLD Version, The "TRADE UPPER DECK" graffiti is in GOLD. THESE are good for an AUTOGRAPHED rookie card of a "First Round Quarterback".
This is the GOLd version I pulled out my box:
So far I've seen 2 others on the other place, compared to about a dozen of the silver ones..
I understand not being able to make any Luck cards for some time, but why can't we redeem online, or why do I have to send them an envelope to send me my card back in??
Are we really talking about UD sending me a card of the possible value as this card in a PWE?? I'd rather fly down to UD HQ and pick it up myself!
