I posted this message in the other thread for the GB, but it has been locked... so I am posting it here hoping that people will see it. Still can't believe that these were shipped this way from their factory, you would think that they have people checking for things like this !!!
FROM OTHER THREAD:
Okay, so here is my ONLY issue with these cards... I can't use them !!!
I did receive both decks, even though my packaging was also damaged, which led to one of the cards in the decks having a corner bent [looks like someone dug a fingernail into it and put a permanent crease in it]. Luckily, I guess, the deck that had the damaged card was the RED deck... which just happened to be the deck that has the INK STAINING!
You can see in the pic that I have attached of the cards that were affected, the 3 across the top and the one in the lower right corner, clearly have black smudges/streaks of ink, grease, whatever it is smeared on them. I have tried everything I can think of to safely remove it and it will not come off. I don't want to try anything else as I am afraid it will remove the back of the card, or damage it further.
The card in the lower left corner [while it is tough to see in this pic] is the card that has the bad corner from the shipping damage.
I have circled all of the blemishes with blue circles to highlight the problems.
My blue deck is problem free, just seems to be a problem with the reds.
Have we heard anything else about replacement cards or decks? I really like these cards and want to use them, but cannot bring myself to do so with these cards in this condition... would YOU? I doubt it. Hope there is something that can be done about these issues and that the company realizes that they are sending out a product like this... can you imagine if a CASINO got these cards... SH!T would hit the fan !!!
