Default It's Official...UD just DESTROYED the EXQUISITE brand....

Was somehow seeing this before it got released so it is just timely to state this on the day of release...

1. flood of MJ autos
2. College unis
3. no sick nba patch autos
4. same pictures and shots over and over again
5. it is SIMPLY - NON-EXQUISITE


*on the side note, the booklets are somehow nice...but college logos just kill the buzz....


By the way, got my case today....flipping them now....

I agree. The lack of patches kills Exquisite before it had a chance. The manufactured patches are UGLY. The college uniforms doesn't bother me, but the same pictures from every product is getting boring.

How does it kill Exquisite? The old Exquisite cards will be more desirable than ever.

this product is boring. im not sure how many people will want the same old college photos with no patches or unique stuff to pull. the rookie cards dont even look that great.

you didn't understand the context of what im saying properly...

it's not that the exquisite brand died....instead it tarnished and destroyed its reputation...

Think of it as Nike....having world balance design shoes


the exquisite brand is synonymous to its name...EXQUISITE..

but this release is exquisucks...

Take away Exquisite you get to choose from prestige and hoops

LMAO

A product filled with Jordan Lebron Bird Magic etc...

Finally something with some value even at a high box price...

I would buy 1 box of exquisite over a case of prestige

Maybe, but it just looks worse now as they are selling products based on the high rate of MJ autos.

It's gotten to a point where they are basically saying buy x number of boxes and you are guaranteed an MJ auto, in some products it's an MJ or Lebron auto.

If you collect rookies and players in NBA uniforms, than Exquisite isn't more appealing than Prestige or Hoops.

Wait, why is Exquisite even being mentioned as a rookie product? Lol

It's been perfectly clear from the getgo Exquisite is a 'vet/HOF' driven product this year.

I'm not too thrilled about picture selection...but come on guys, it's pretty obvious what was to be expected. Look at Retro. Same stuff, different day..and people are still eating up Retro way more than anyone thought they would.

We'll see how exquisite holds up long term, though.

I think UD should have stopped after 2009-10 Exquisite. It had both NBA uniforms and a solid group of rookies w/ gold parallels numbered to their jersey numbers. I agree with you on Panini's box values.

I am going to have to respectfully disagree with the original post. I just opened two cases and this stuff looks very nice in my opinion. The shadow box cards are really sharp, and the autograph selection is second to none. I do agree about the rookie selection and the fact that they are just on-card auto with no patches...but the chase in this set is not the rcs in my opinion. I can see this stuff climbing rather than falling.....I could be wrong but I dont think so.

Oh look, OP created another UD Exquisite bashing thread, I guess he's going to do one every hour.


Note: Been here 4.5 years myself. Didn't join to rave about UD.

Given the fact that Upper Deck don't have the NBA license, I think they should be commended for their recent releases. Retro, Exquisite, All-Time Greats... those are outstanding releases all things considered.

I believe his point is the fact that they bothered to release a product that is not up to standards is a joke. They have families to feed, so it's understandable.

I don't think you've seen this Pre-Sell : Blowout Cards - Sports Cards and Trading Cards Wholesale Online Store

Or this: The Panini America QC Gallery & Checklist: 2012-13 Threads Basketball (59 Images) The Official Panini America Blog

Or this: Panini America Provides a Sneak Preview of 2012-13 Timeless Treasures Basketball The Official Panini America Blog

Or this: Panini America Teases the Stunning Debut of 2012-13 Prizm Basketball (Gallery) The Official Panini America Blog

Or, of course, this: Panini Peek: 2012-13 Absolute Basketball The Official Panini America Blog

The value is coming, it just hasn't been released yet (I agree, Prestige and Hoops are really bad, but let them release some good products before you start comparing to UD)

Don't get me wrong, these cards are nice, but this set is nowhere near deserving of the Exquisite name. How are they going to use the exact same photos as Retro??? No top rookies, no gu'd, and Cazzie Russell...are you kidding me? To each their own but if you ask me, ATG,Retro&"Exquisite" are all the same s**t floating around in a different toilet.
