SOM Order/Shipping Question
Permalink  
 


It's been 3 years since I had placed an order with SOM, as memory serves me, the majority of the time I had, my shipment would either be missing an item or items, cards would be bent or otherwise damaged.

Three years later, I realized today nothing has changed in those regards...missing items, damaged cards prevail!
My question to the members whom wish to respond...Am I an isolated case or are other members also experiencing the same issues as I?

I honestly think its hit or miss. The damage is certainly not always Strat's fault. I do know folks that always box a game box because the cards will be shipped inside that.

I've ordered several sets and have never had a problem

What I've done the last several years is get the current GAME edition and the past season CARDS. Both sets can fit in the game box, and they ship the whole thing in a cardboard box, not the bubble wrap-lined envelope. I decided to go this route at the suggestion of other gamers and after receiving a few roughed up bubble wrap-lined envelopes here and there over the years. Plus, it's kind of nice to have crisp, brand new charts at the start of a new Strat season.

 I follow what you are saying NatsFan, however, I have all the season card sets I care to have, about 9 now, plus 2 HOF sets, both Heroes sets, the complete Oldtimer set x 2, and the 36 Past Season set. I should have just purchased an empty game box for the card sets to be shipped in as opposed to the bubble-wrapped envelopes. As far as fresh charts go, they can be bought individually. I also long ago had my charts laminated, have racked up many miles on the same charts although I have 3 sets in all.
Yes, there are directions we as consumers can do to avoid damaged product via shipping...However, for items ordered that were not shipped, which again, I experienced this time around, the only fix is a phone call to Glen Head.
