Tested it out on my binders and other bits. Went to the co op and got readings on 2 of them. Did not try the ones with the satchel bag though.

Got them home and opened them like it was Christmas morning and was gutted to find no card.

I have been to loads of the big supermarkets and even Southampton hospital to find all the tops have been neatly cut open. I have looked at least 25-30 packs. I might have had a shake of them but I am not that low. They even left the packet and the Rooney card in there though!!!
I have had the same thing, got a reading on a binder but it didn't have a card inside. I have also found loads with neatly cut open outer bags, with the LE and free pack of cards left in. I wonder how people are getting away with this as the binders are always pretty near or visible from the tills.

Graham I just realised something I think the hologram numbers can help us figure out how many there are of each card, so take paulinho for example look at the numbers you have and get the hugest number and the lowest number hologram you have that will give us at least the idea of how many there could be.

Graham it could be Ronaldo's or yeah possibly a special signed card that be awesome. Where did you find it? Can you upload a picture? Also if you find anymore cards other than the ones I have let me know I'd be interested in buying them, as long as it's a duplicate of a card your son already has ofcourse

Just read through this thread. At first I thought someone was being sarcastic, but no.
Bad luck to all collectors who don't have a metal detector to search for signed redemptions, and have to try their luck the old fashioned way. Poor form.

Maybe those using such methods, could list which newsagents they have searched, so others know to avoid and can have a fair chance at hitting a redemption.

Did you every redeem your signed card, if so which one was it?

I think the Ronaldo signed didn't exist or has someone seen it on ebay? Maybe there was only one or two and these could be anywhere, in unopened starter packs or bottom of a kids toy box!

A little off topic :bum but does anyone know if the Gold Ferdinand 1 of 1 card (can't remember which year it was) was found?
