Default 09-10 Exquisite answers from Upper Deck on Facebook

To my surprise, Upper Deck answered a couple of questions I had regarding 09-10 Exquisite Basketball on their Facebook site.
The first question I had was the actual release date. Their answer was 09-10 Exquisite would "most likely" start shipping out on Wednesday, but that the shipping was not synchronized. Shipping would continue throughout the end of this week.

The second more important question I had was a general question on the number of boxes of 09-10 Exquisite Basketball actually made. I quoted mightbe's stats of over 8,000 boxes being made. Their answer was "we are not packing out all of the base cards", with a further explanation of "We pulled thousands of the base cards". The "numbers" got pulled way back. "People will be able to make sets, but they will be just more limited than 199". I know lots of quotes & no link to Facebook. This is just some food for thought & what appears to me to be some honest answers from Upper Deck.
If anybody can link the Upper Deck Facebook / Basketball discussion question I would appreciate it. My computer skills are lousy.

---Oh, and those six Tiger patch cards

Interesting...I'm fascinated by how this product will end up going over once it is released. I was hoping to get a case before the weekend but it looks like that won't happen. I don't understand why they would have made the base numbered so high then...I mean, whow much more would someone pay for a Jordan base, say out of /50 rather than /199 (even knowing maybe they only ever released 50). Plus, I could see them throwing in all those extra base cards to people they'll screw out of redemptions from their products.

Projected orders would be the reason for them being /199, however, that really leaves a lot of cards left over to go backdoor in my opinion, if they're pulling base cards that means they didnt get the orders expected.

They'd be better off to make a ton of it and sit on it and slowly let it filter out into the market, than to not make it.

instead of a bait and switch, its just a bait. If they pull everything else proportionatley, how many of the Tiger Autos will still make it, much less the other guys. Have we even seen the Tiger Autos that made last years Football? I think one has hit ebay/youtube or the fourms. I think the print run was 3 or 5, but I would think that you could assume 1 of those was pulled off camera and never hit ebay.

What good is a card numbered to /25 if they only release 15? If they change the serial numbering to 15 I'd be happy, but sounds like they're keeping the numbering the same. I'm not touching this with a ten foot pole as it screams selectivly picked. I've seen hand collated

Just another screw job with deceitful production!!!

If everyone wasn't so hung up on serial numbered cards, there'd be no problem.

In my eyes there are two entities to blame...UD for one of course, and then collectors that demand serial numbered cards. What a joke they have both become.

I think here it is the fact that they are taking cards that were supposed to be packed out and not packing them out. While no one will complain about less base cards, it more the fact that they could do this with more desirable cards without people knowing.

Thats the issue, I would doubt they would as well, but it leaves room for people to question it. Like most things, it doesnt matter if you actually do something wrong, it matters if it looks like you did something wrong. Perception is everything.

The biggest issue in my mind is all these cards are serial numbered x/yy. But if they don't ever insert some of these cards, then they are actually rarer. It's all very deceiving and wrong. Everything I have come to expect from Upper Deck though I guess.

Not sure, but bumping this 3 year old thread seems like a very strange thing to do...

Have you checked eBay? That's about the only place that has Exquisite now, but it will cost you an arm and a leg.

I didn't know this. Thank you for the information.

08-09 Exquisite shocked me, with only 125 per base it never caught fire like 09-10.
