This product has the most random checklist I have ever seen. Yordano Ventura and Robinson Yambati are 2 of the baseball auto's. Who??

It's Upper Decks version of Allen & Ginter - just without the collector following or success.

Looking for Andre Dawson Serial numbered cards that are his jersey number - either #8 or #10. So looking for cards like 8/8 or 08/99 or 10/250.

I saw the box breaks and really don't understand the appeal. Endangered animal cards and Karl Marx...really?

Gotta agree with everyone else. UD is really making a fool of themselves this year. With SP Cuts the signatures are cut horribly and the products over priced and now with Goodwin Champs, it's random stupid sh!t wanna be like a&g but it's just d&s. (dumb & stupid)

I opened four boxes and I thought it was fun. It's cheap to rip, has decent hits, and people do collect it for set-building (at least in previous releases - despite the earlier comment to the contrary).

Its UD's version of A+G with some nice possible hits like painted presidents and the all mighty James and Jordan On Card Autos

Considering some of the hits you can get it seems like it would be a fairly cheap break

This was fun to open and you really can't go wrong at the price point.

I just opened two more boxes and pulled a Gretchen Bleier (sp?) auto and a Wayne Gretzky auto redemption

I also hit a Jon Bones Jones auto yesterday. I think I got one baseball auto and a couple of baseball relics out of 6 boxes. I'm not sure why it's considered a baseball product, but with the price point, the nice card design, the short-printed base cards, and the potential for nice hits, I don't care what category you put it in - it's a nice product.

They know they're the only game in town and can get away with charging whatever they want. When Heritage was released I went in and they wanted $120/box. I really wanted to crack some of this stuff over the holiday but at that price I think I'm gonna be breaking retail bowman or series 2.

Use your credit card and buy from an internet dealer. You can get these anywhere for $75-$80 /box and most sites ship free with $100-$150 order and you don't have to pay tax if they are not in your state. Only drawbak is you got to wait a few days to get it.

Either that or open up your own shop down the block and undercut him on everything. LOL

If you get really drunk and squint it's almost Robin Ventura.
