Default UD Black?

Just getting back into collecting, and one of the sets that I LOVE the look of is the UD Black cards. Can someone give me the lowdown on the product? Was it only produced one year? It doesn't seem that there are any hobby packs or boxes still out there.

Thanks in advance for the help!!

ud black was produced in 07-08 and 08-09... each box was like $200 MSRP and then skyrocketed. insanely hard to find now because of both the rookies (durant/rose/westbrook just to name a few) and the monstahh pulls, like octographs

there are actually some 06-07 UD Black cards that were redemption only


my favorite product of all time siiigh wish there was more...

Just for you two, since you like it... i'll share my Elgin Baylor 1/1



I also have the regular version which is numbered to the players' jersey numbers. In Baylor's case, it's /22 and I have 22/22 if that means anything.


But yeah, he pretty much gave you all the info on UD Black, or as far I as I know that's everything right there. I also love this product, one of my favorites!!! Oh yeah, one thing I think he missed is that the box contains 2 packs with only 1 card per pack, so yeah, only 2 cards per box!!! lol

Good luck finding a box of this stuff... very rare to come by!

Thanks man really appreciate that.

Yes, only 1 card per pack... That's crazy, right. A very exspensive lotto ticket lol

Sorry for the bad scan by the way, I need to take some pics with my camera one of these days...

So A box with 2 packs (2 cards total) sold for $200 and went up from there? That really is crazy.

I wonder if anyone at The National in Chicago will have unopened packs or if they are all just gone??

Now i'm wondering if I should have snatched up the 2 boxes my local card shop had before they closed down... It was $225 per box and this was about 8 months ago. I thought that was crazy for 2 cards lol Imagine that, $450 for a total of 4 cards

Those are sweet.
Just out of curiosity, why did you cover the serial numbering?

Why not? lol

Well, if you just MUST know, it's because i'd like some cards I collect to be private, so if I leave the serial number people can go check the next number over and see what else I got graded/slabed... Plus, sometimes you have people that will steal your cert numbers and add them to the set registries as if they ownsed them............

Are you happy?

Oh, and thanks by the way

my LCS has a box of 08/09 for $400. Been tempted many times. But can't pull the trigger on it.

More likely you will lol

Won't it be near impossible to make your money back unless you hit a Jordan or DRose? You would only be paying that much for the experience of opening the packs

There is much more to be pulled than Jordan and Drose, but yes more than likely he would lose money...it would still be exciting and the gamble would almost be worth the money IMO

Your best bet would be to go on youtube and watch some box breaks and see for yourself what some of these boxes look like...

Will, i've told you many times how much I like those cards and I will say it again! Great cards man I love UD Black too... and the more I see these cards makes me wanna buy some more.

Based on the $400 price tag that a poster mentioned, all these cards would cost $2,400.00 if you had to buy the boxes LOL

Buying singles, IMO, would be your best bet. But you can always try your luck... It's fun and you just never know.

Black was also made in 06/07 as part of a redemption program for packs found primarily in UD Hardcourt. Surprised people forgot about this.
