The NFL told Upper Deck to piss off no more UD football cards for you. :(

That leaves only Panini the only card company left and I'm not a fan!!! SP authentic has the best Panther rookie cards and now no more!!

Huge lost to the hobby and my Panther collection and with Topps out as well it stings just a little bit more. :mad5:

people still make sports cards? i thought people stopped caring about that in the '90s. i'm surprised there is still a market for it with all the more entertaining modern day distractions. if people want a picture of an athlete, or his stats, they can just download them online.

Me too. Though I did collect baseball cards for a little while so I can sympathize.

I'm not crying. Upper Decks quality control and customer service suck anyway. This years exquisite is a sorry excuse for a high end product. The cards are damaged and some of them have the wrong teams patch in them. That's inexcusable. Upper Deck can go out of business for all I care. I like Panini better anyway. I just wish Topps would get their license back.

I agree with most but SP Authentic is the greatest set ever made and too loose that is just sickening. Ultimate/SP/Exquisite is the core foundation of most collectors and Hobby shops will be hurt...If you loose UD then you should allow Topps to have football back but they suck at the high end department anyway. Hopefully this will wake up Upper Deck and in 2011 come back strong.


Exquisite always have complaints about chipping due to the heavy thick card stock.
