Default Devante Smith-Pelly stamped autographed cards...

Beckett News NHLPA addresses Devante Smith-Pelly’s stamped autograph cards


By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Hockey Editor

Some collectors realized many of Anaheim Ducks Devante Smith-Pelly’s recent autograph cards were stamped and not actually signed by the player.

The NHL Players Association learned of the mistake and is working with Smith-Pelly, Upper Deck and Panini to fix the issue.

“It turns out he did stamp the cards, it affects five products,” said Adam Larry, director of licensing for the NHLPA. “It was just an error in judgment. There wasn’t any bad intention on his behalf.”

The five products in this scenario are Upper Deck’s SP Authentic, Ultimate and The Cup, and Panini’s Contenders and Prime, according to Larry.

Collectors who have any of these are directed to contact the customer service departments for the respective card companies.

“This is not something we’re aware of happening in other circumstances,” Larry said. “When the rumor came to service, we looked into it. We will work with Upper Deck and Panini to rectify the situation as best we could.”

Some collectors noticed a difference in his autographs on the stamped versions with different pressure marks, but the amazing consistency on all his on-card autographs. With rumors floating around message boards and blogs, the NHLPA took notice and investigated the situation.

How do the companies not notice this when they get them in? It is collectors who noticed!!! These should have never made it into the products. I usually don't chime in but some things recently have made me upset recently with Panini and Upper Deck.

I looked at the stamped example and the one I just pulled from Black Friday. The ink strokes in the 'P' does not look like the stamped version. Should I send in anyway?
