Panini offers trades for redemptions at NSCC

By Chris Olds | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor

If you have any outstanding older redemptions with Panini America, the National Sports Collectors Convention is where you can make a trade.

In short,  in Baltimore Aug. 1-5, you can trade and maybe upgrade.

The company announced its trade program on Tuesday. For any redemptions more than four months old totaling a certain amount, a grab bag containing an autograph or memorabilia card of $50, $100 or $200 Beckett value can be obtained via trade. The bags will note which sport they are good for and there is a maximum of $400 in redemptions that can be traded in during the show.

Collectors need to bring a printed copy of their outstanding redemptions from the Panini website so they can be verified and valued. Some grab bags will include on-site redemptions good for Panini boxes as well.

The company will announce more details closer to the time of the show.

Lets just say you have a 2005 Leaf certified materials redemption for a Jevone Kearse jersey auto will they honor that or just the current products within the last couple of years? How far can it go back with Donruss? They must be hurtting for some good press or business.

So in order to take advantage of this trade one would have to attend the National… What about those of us who are unable to attend?

@Cincyscott – You’d probably get a better answer by either following them on Twitter or asking that on their Blog. My assumption is just products since Panini America took over, nothing before, but I could be wrong.

They can’t just do this via their website? They put the redemptions in their products, then don’t honor them except via this route? Absurd. Redemptions that expire, are not fulfilled, are outstanding for over two years from product release…what wonderful business practices… All I can say is, good for those in Baltimore. I would love to trade some of my worthless redemptions for a shot at a $300 BV card.

These geniuses actually spent time coming up with this program, as opposed to figuring out how to help ALL of their customers. Nothing like the threat of being face to face with the people who ultimately pay your salary to step up your level of customer service…

How is it the card companies are not sued for false advertising?

You promote a product that is NOT available.

How hard is it to hold the cards until they are redeemed , probably impossible because the companies NEVER HAD the cards in the first place which is false advertising!!!
