Should I accept????
Panini is offering me 2 game used memorabilia cards # to 25 of Yogi Berra in place of an auto of Robinson Cano because they don't believe he will sign the card (Limited Silver Sluggers card). Do ya'll think I should accept this offer?

Looking 4 Berra/Posada GU cards.

No, the Limited Silver Sluggers also has the silver nameplate in it, that's a sweet card. Yogi game used are pretty easy to come by. I think you should ask for an auto of higher value in exchange, it's their fault they can't deliver on the card, so they need to make it up to you.

I'd hold out for the Cano auto, or something worth more value. You can get Yogi Berra GU cards for fairly reasonable prices.

The guy I am dealing with seems like a jerk and all he has to offer is GU stuff. I would much rather have the auto and even though I collect Yogi Berra I am sure I would run across the 2 that he is offering to me on eBay or here in the market place at a much cheaper price combined than the value of the Cano card. He actually said that they don't believe they will get him to sign the card. Then why have it as a redemption then if you can't get the player to sign???

Ask for another auto, if he insists you go for some GU dont accept, they want you to take the easy route

Tell me about it. I was also thinking about the Better Buisness Bureau route but I don't think that will help any.

DO NOT ACCEPT. They are bound to give you the card they stated or at LEAST one of equal value. Keep pushing and you will win. Ask to work with someone higher up. The harder you push, the better the prize will be. You have nothing to lose.

RE: Should I accept????
Agreed with every comment! That guy's trying to swindle you. Do not accept! Tell him you must speak with a supervisor and let him know that you demand an auto commensurate with a Cano auto. Also tell him that a few thousand, avid collectors are on this Forum and we are eagerly waiting to see the outcome of this enormous screwup of theirs, and their company's "good name" is on the line.
Not sure who you collect, but right now,the only current players that compare to Cano would be Miguel Cabrera or Ryan Braun. (IMO) But I'd push for a Bryce Harper or Mike Trout card. When negotiating, always start high and you can seem reasonable when you settle for what it's worth, but they should make this whole debacle go away and upgrade you to a higher $ auto, just to make up for all the trouble and time they've cost you.
See, they are all the same ... Everyone trashes Topps, but here's Panini doing it just as badly!

Topps should send me Flowers and Candy this Valentine's Day, because they've been screwing me pretty regularly throughout the year. Smile

LOL!!! I know the BBB isn't worth a damn but sometimes people back off when you use something that might add weight (even though BBB won't but who knows). I asked for a Joe DiMaggio Legends Book which he shot down. I told him I'd get back with him (have a head cold right now so I feel like garbage). According to the website they have less than 3 months to give me a card cause they can wait up to 8 months to ship my card or another one that is comparable which sucks
