True on some designs, but not the NT RPA's. An Alec Burks Exquisite NBA uni and auto #/99, would smoke anything Panini!

i like some cards from nt, but i never cared at all for the rpas. boring pose/design. very little creativity or imagination.

UD Football exquisite was a big hit even tho it was without NFL license. I'm sure it'll be a hit, but it will hurt the value of exquisite name. But what do Upper deck care. They probably still have plenty of sticker autos to get rid of.

I have no interest in it. All it will do is increase the value of older exquisite years. For those who are really into certain colleges it'll be a hit for them though I guess.

The biggest difference I think would be that in football they had all the key RC and veterans but in basketball many are exclusive to Panini. Unlike Retro, Exquisite is typically driven by RCs so no Kyrie will really hurt not to mention no Kobe, Durant, Rose, Blake, etc

Looks like embossed gold foilboard. Nothing that hasn't been done in the past.

Haha, that's uncanny - I was thinking exactly the same thing!

Other than that, both products look impressive.

The Championship Bling look nice, but wait til the checklist comes out. When you mention Havlicek as one of the better players and show Bill Walton, you know the checklist cant be too loaded.

The auto booklet looks straight out of Topps Triple Threads as well as being sticker autos. And the Rookie Signatures look awfully familiar to other UD designs

Instead of coming out with a 2012 Exquisite they should work on getting my 3 Luc Mbah a Moute Exquisite Press Plate Auto 1/1's made that I redeemed back in September 2009.

Dont get me started with UD Black. That Quad Exquisite Auto looks like it belongs in Black, not Exquisite. I really dont see the purpose even of having UD Black. Wait I know, to water down the product with more Freddie Lewis, Lonnie Shelton, Bill Laimbeer, andSam Cassell.

With all that said I will still be picking up whatever Tobias Harris stuff is in either product
