With Ultimate hockey they have limited base. With that being said, they have like 2-3 hits per pack b/c there is less base to be spread amongst the product. Ultimate basketball has base cards /499. That allowed UD to put more base with only one hit and therefor spread the hits out. It is kind of a odd thing to do, but they figure basketball collectors will pay for a one hit pack....and we have seen that they will, heck I did, haha.

Signature is a crap product for the most part, but just wait for a few months, and the stuff will be dirt cheap. Stadium Club last year was the same way, and it is 75 now. It is a good buy at this point. Signature will be the same way. It may never get you a ton of money back, but when it does totally bottom out, and it will, getting a Pierce, Rodman, and Yi might actually get you your money back or close to it. It will be a fun break sooner than later.

You might be right, but you don't know this to be fact. There are a lot of guys in this forum that spend a lot of money.

This is a ridiculous and untrue statement.

Three cards of players that you will NEVER find in a Topps product!
I have a better Pippen card and a better patch card of Lebron that came from an unlicensed product than those you just showed, and mine are worth more money. The odds of hitting them were way better too. In fact, by the case, the odds of pulling my two were one in 4.38 cases. How many cases on average would you have to open of UD in order to pull your cards?

Look, I'm only busting your balls here because it sounds as if your judging others without actually knowing what they have or haven't opened. You are making some bold statements that I either know to be untrue, or have a hard time believing you "know" them to be true. That's all.

You have some nice cards, and I thank you for sharing them.

Well if my theory holds true, it will not take much to get it back as a pack would go for about 8 bucks. Maybe it won't bottom out that low, but I bet it gets down quite a long ways.
