Default 2009/10 UD Draft Basketball...????

ok quick question for you basketball guys..i know UD lost its license for Basketball products (as well as Topps) yet i saw this on the pre-sales

i know they can get around the license issue and feature cards/autos etc of Jordan Kobe either in college/high school jerseys or just airbrushed pictures with logos taken out a la Sports Kings

my question was looking at the set breakdown, they have it listed as 100 "Rookies"

I know they can get away with this in Football since there are 7 rounds so theres plenty of scrub late round Autos they can fill..but last i checked there are only 2 rounds/30 teams which means only 60 players drafted...do they really think this product is gonna sell well with 40 undrafted "Rookie" Autos in the set and thats not even counting if they get all the foreign players who are drafted to sign? Do thy really think people will pay $950/case hoping for an MJ/Kobe/Garnett Auto when they wont even be in uniform?

any thoughts?

Upper Deck will fail miserably on this product. I believe they secured an NCAA license, so they'll be able to use athletes in their highschool (Kobe, Lebron, etc) / college uniforms. Its still junk, though.

If anyone does buy any of this and gets an auto of Jessie Sapp from Georgetown, I'd be interested. He won't be drafted, but was a senior this year and this may be the only opportunity to get an auto of him. DeJuan Summers is of interest too, bu he should get drafted somewhere. I guess that's the only appeal I see in a set like this.....if you want cards of college guys. I don't know if Sapp will be in the set, but solid senior players from bigger programs seem to be a possibility. Other than that, I agree.....a failure waiting to happen, especially at the price unless there are some BIG surprises!
