Upper Deck Celebrates the Redemption Card

The new ad for 2010 SPx Baseball (as posted on Upper Deck's Facebook page):



I like the concept but, "I will screm when we pull a SPx Rookie Redemption"? Really? Probably not the best choice of words. Or maybe it is. My guess is they're wanting this young lad to scream with joy like this kid:



Redemptions though - they make me want to scream, but in the slightly more angry sense.



Using redemptions as a central piece of a marketing campaign? Really?

the card companies are really putting a spin on things trying to show how fantabulous everything is that collectors in reality hate.

this ad about redemptions, topps on twitter showing off the thousands of sticker autos....

I'm getting disgruntled. Good thing I'm not a postal worker....

It sure makes set(s) building 31 year old stuff a lot more attractive. :(

Wait, that line about busting with dad makes no sense.
