Default Malkin Mail and "Damage" Opinions

This redemption arrived today. I'm very happy with it but I'm curious about other people's thoughts.

I've noticed one issue I seemed to have with 08/09 Cup cards are faint surface creases by the window corners. I know my Howe Property of had them...one prospective buyer had an issue but the eventual buyer didn't even care if sent him a scan of the card since it was a 1/1.

Anyways, to me they aren't too much of a problem...obviously, you wish every card to be perfect but this seems to be "understandable" damage, you know? Just wondering what everyone thinks.

You can always upload imagery in a complaint e-mail and see if they still have one to switch it out?

Sorry, my question was unclear...I meant, is damage like that sort of expected for Cup and other patch cards? I know some rough edges and such due to handling are pretty much the norm. How big of an issue is it for buying/selling? You think most people understand minor flaws like that?

Don't get me wrong, I love the card...just curious if creases like that are a major issue to most people.

The thickness of the patch is what caused the creases. Worth a shot to contact UD and include a pic as RFJ suggested. Photo evidence goes a long way to getting a replacement form UD.

Yeah, I know it is from the patch...my question was more, when it comes to selling a card are most people going to care or do most people understand imperfections like that? I've pulled a lot of Cup cards this year that have light creases like this Malkin.

I don't do Hockey so I can't comment on the preferences of the Hockey buyers out there. But I think that most people buying high end like The Cup and Exquisite know that the cards are not going to be GEM MINT....epsecially with the caliber of patches that are in the products.

i generally don't have a problem with a slight crease like that. however for 09-10 exquisite, if the basketball guy in the middle of the jumbo patches is torn then it's a big issue.

I have a quite a few of the Foundations Quad patches and most of them have little lines in the corners, I believe it happens when the front of the card is placed over the patches. I think it's just caused by the seams/bulges. I don't mind it, cards that thick usually have some flaws whether it be dinged corners, etc... I've seen the Rookie Patch Auto's that have tears and other damage along the foil surrounding the patch, that I can't stand, totally kills the appeal.

BTW, the Grabovski HG arrived today, thanks again!!
