If you pulled redemption cards from Panini products a long time ago and you’re tired of waiting for those players to sign their cards, you’ll have a chance to get something else next week—if you’re going to the National Sports Collectors Convention next week.
The program allows collectors who have multiple outstanding redemption cards four months or older and already pending in Panini’s system an opportunity to trade them for something of higher value.
Turn them back over to the company during the show and you’ll get a grab bag containing an autograph, prime memorabilia card or unopened box worth more than the Beckett value of the redemption. The program will be separated by sport and you can choose a baseball, basketball or football card or box in return. Panini says some of the available random cards will be worth as much as 20-25% more than the redemption card you turn in. Each card may also include live onsite redemption cards good for boxes of product. For the second straight year, the program will also include a small number of Panini Black Boxes.
To speed up the process, Panini is asking collectors who participate to bring print outs from the company’s website of the outstanding redemptions they want to have replaced. A customer service rep will verify the outstanding redemptions as well as their values before completing the replacement process.
Collectors will be able to trade up to $400 in value at the show while supplies last. Outstanding redemption cards must total a minimum of $35 in value in order to be eligible for the trade-up program. Collectors also will be required to sign a waiver that states they agree to the random pulled replacement.
