1 hit per $82, am i reading that correctly? If so that is absolutely stupid and i expect this product to drop in price atleast 30 bux or so

thats a pretty big ripoff, uness u get some really nice git BVD like 80$, just buy when it goes down.

we will have to see what comes out of it, but I imagine there are going to be alot of horrible boxes at $80-90 per crack. ohmy.gif

that sound you hear is the sound of groan of another UD customer pulling a USA Junior Team auto of some whozit who quits playing baseball during college!

Oy Vay..

Sounds like every other high-end UD product. Wonder how many Melvin Moras will find their way into this set? rolleyes.gif

This configuration change is going to kill this release. I hope the product managers at Upper Deck for the other sports don't repeat this gun-to-the-head SKU change.

Why even put those into regular UD product - create a separate USA product! If I wanted USA team autographs of people who might not sniff the major leagues I would buy the proper product!

"ONE Autograph, MEMORABILIA , or Autograph Memorabilia card per pack, on average!"

imagine paying 82 dollars and getting a not numbered base jersey card. i really wanna see some vids of ppl opening these and see the kind of cards you can get.

Up until last year, you only got 1 hit per $100 msrp pack of Ultimate Collection. The only difference with this is that instead of being 4 mini boxes or packs per box, they are simply just loose packs now. That could be good for the overall set-up becuase you don't have to worry if someone already pulled the patch out of the box, you should have equal odds. And if we remember, they upped Ultimate to 3 hits per pack last year and it is now the lowest priced Ultimate Collection you can get. So quantity doesn't equal quality. There will be some bad boxes, but I bet if you buy 4 of them you will probably find something nice. Last year, Ultimate was $300 per box when it came out, so the prices are actually pretty similar to buy 4 of these. The 1 hit from these boxes may end up being better than 2 common unnumbered jerseys and a common unnumbered auto from a 2007 Ultimate pack.

Its the same amount as buying a box of Ultimate before so its not a big deal to me. Just open it in the store and gamble if you hit big in one or 2 boxes u save a lot of money over last years product

God I hope that UD is not considering this to be their marketing schemes of the future...

If so, I won't ever buy them again...

$82 is too much of a gamble, your right.

Actually, from what I've seen this hasn't turned out too badly. Most people that have broken cases (15 boxes) are getting 13 or 14 autographed memorabilia cards on average. Also, they are cards where the player actually signed the piece of jersey. If not, then they are still on-card autos. It's not a bad looking product. Here are some shots I stole from eBay.

Looks like some nice hits in this stuff, but I'll stick to buying singles.
I Love Product
The one hit in this year's packs are a lot better than the multiple hits in last year's packs.
NYStateOfMind1976
I agree the hits look okay but I am going to stick with getting my hands on the singles I want. The price just seems a bit inflated to me.

I think this years Ultimate Baseball was pretty good. While I agree it's a little overpriced, the hits look nice and are really sick. Most of the hits are autographs on a jumbo jersey. You can't beat that now can you? I'm not going to buy a box of this, but I will be buying quite a few singles because they look azaming. Out of ten, I think this is about where it ranks:

Autos- 6/10
Game Used- 7/10
Overall Value- 6/10

You don't get your money back, but you get a nice looking card.

The one box I got was a DICE K redeemption Auto Road Jersey #D/10
So I liked it

for a highend product I prefer boxed packs, they can't as easily be "searched, check "pack searching" on youtube to see what I mean.
