2012 UD Football is live........at least in some areas. Let the Andrew Luck and RGIII frenzy begin. The first few nice autos to hit eBay of those two will fetch some $$$ for sure ! smile.gif These are the first true RCs for the 2012 draft class. Should be a fun ride!

what do you mean first true rookie cards? Is it because sage and the other company (can't recall the name for some reason) don't have NFL contracts?

Press Pass and Sage product lines are both considered collegiate cards as I believe they only have contracts with the NCAA or some organization that gives them the rights to college photography.

Neither Sage or Press Pass is licensed by anyone, hence the lack of team logos. Even when those companies held an NCAA license, the cards were never considered true rookie cards throughout the hobby. UD has the exclusive NCAA license now and has had for a couple years. Both Panini and Topps hold an NFL license. If you are a fan of draft pick/college products, give the Leaf products a try. They are unlicensed as well but do a much better job with card design and quality over Press Pass and especially Sage.

Thanks, when I was writing I new the word contract was not really right but I couldn't think of license (couldn't think of press pass either.) Anyway, I'm only interested in Packers uniform or Packers logo cards so none of the college cards interest me. I'll take a college uniform card if it comes out in a month or two and says "drafted by the Packers" or something along those lines but that's about it.

Does Junior Hemmingway (WR Michigan) have a card in this set?

Yes he does. I pulled one out of the boxes that I broke for singles.

Chad,

If you pull anything of Bobby Rainey (WKU running back) please put it aside for me. He has base, a parallel or two, and an autograph in UD.
