The release of 2010 Elite Extra Edition gives collectors the most comprehensive - and the first - draft picks set featuring players from the 2010 First Year Player Draft. Collectors have been asking questions about the release, so officials at Panini want to tackle them head-on.
Officials have confirmed that the wrong autographs were inadvertently applied to the cards of pitching prospect Jordan Swagerty.
"It's an extremely unfortunate - but honest - mistake and we can't apologize enough to collectors," says Panini's Scott Prusha. "What we can do, however, is what we always do: Atone for our mistake and make things right for collectors."
To make up for the mistake, Panini will replace the error version of Jordan Swagerty's rookie card with the correct version. In addition, Panini will be offering collectors who send in the correct card an exclusive Elite Extra Edition card of top-prospect Manny Machado.
Also, collectors will discover that two cards don't exist - card #27 in the Commons and its autographed and non-autographed parallels, and card #11 in the Private Signings insert. Both were pulled during post-production.
Several players' autographs arrived in-house just after the product packed out, meaning most of the limited number of redemptions that were issued will be available for fulfillment soon. Those players include: Christian Colon, B.J. Surhoff, Alex Wimmers, Jesse Hahn, Robin Ventura, Tino Martinez and J.T. Realmuto. Anthony Ranaudo and Gary Brown.
