Default 100% false advertising by panini!

I opened a case of Contenders today(and watched another) and it is not as described. The sell sheet clearly states AT LEAST 2 on cards per box. Most boxes didnt even have 1 on card. I usually laugh at the lawsuit threads and I am not suggesting that I am going to start one either but how can they get away with this after it is CLEARLY what they advertised on the sell sheet? As a matter of fact... In my case.... I received only 4 autographs that were on card.....

Bait and Switch with tiny print that covers their asses. It's lame, but they've all been doing it for years, and like lemmings we continue to fall for it.

WE WANT to believe them. We really do.

Were your autos falling 5/box or 6/box?

From what I saw 6 autos were falling. I opened 2 boxes and had an on card auto in each. The sticker auto are crappy and not what we should expect from this product. I made a post on twitter but Panini has yet to respond. This is going to be a #@#@#@#@ storm of epic proportions!

It should be.... They are clearly in the wrong. I had a case ordered and couldnt back out. It is total garbage... I dont even see how fine print could save them. The sheet says.. AT LEAST 2 ON CARD AUTOS.... I had 4 in a whole case! I have to live with the garbage I pulled. I know that is the risk you take but no reason we should have to live with being duped.

Per the official sell-sheet, here is what Panini has lied about

#1: They delay the product more than a month in order to presumably cut down on the redemptions
#2: There are still 30 redemptions in the product, including 10 RPS players
#3: They say that there will be AT LEAST 2 on cards per box, but clearly there is AT MOST 1.

What do they have to say for themselves. I can't forsee any excuse that would get them out of all three of these lies.

Bottom of the sales sheet also says "All information is accurate at the time of posting content is subject to change. Card images are solely for the purpose of design display"

It's BS, but gives them a legal out.

Queue up Metallica's "Sad But True"... I'll be swinging by my LCS tomorrow. I dunno how much and of what I'll be breaking. I had thoughts of at least couple boxes each SPA/Contenders, but who knows if I'll do one of each...

no wonder Panini has been deathly silent on social media sites about contenders. Funny Olds isn't saying anything either. Did they mention that Prizm is hot hot hot?

Players are partly to blame, but Panini is doing themselves no favors by launching products weekly starting in January and going through to March. They surely are asking a ton of work of the players during the most crucial part of the season and playoffs. Panini needs to severely rethink their release calendar.

How else do you expect them to recoup their licensing fees?

Topps and UD don't seem to have a problem spreading out their releases.

Topps has larger print runs and UD doesn't have an NFL license.

It wouldn't be so bad if it was a box here or there that didn't have the 2 on card but from what it seems none of them have 2....shame

Earlier Panini flat out lied about an insert in one of their basketball sets being something like 1:30 cases. Obviously that's a VERY rare set, but as it turns out, the updated odds that they mentioned a few weeks after the release changed it to like 1 per case.

Awful how they can make stuff up and change it whenever they want to

I opened 2 boxes. One had two on card RPS redemptions, the other had one and a cracked ice auto.

Do they or don't they have the same players signing for them as Panini?

Panini bends people over on every release, just because they know all of you rubes will continue to unload cash on their products.

These threads pop up every week, time for some of us to learn already.
