I am far from being a fan of UD...as a matter of fact I avoid them as much as possible. That being said, I really think they did a great job on the design of Masterpieces this year. The base cards are very nice, with the addition of unique player-specific photography (Desmond Howard Heisman Pose, Favre Raiders game) rather than just action shots from last season. Especially pleasing are the GU, which have a solid colored border (like Gridiron Kings in Threads), and a beautiful portrait like appearance.
Takes the pain out of getting a plain GU quite a bit when they look good!
