Default Opinions on new All Time Greats?

There are some autos that look pretty sweet but still lame to have all the college unis (in my opinion). I do like some of those SPX dual autos especially this one:
2012 UD All Time Greats Michael Jordan Tiger Woods Dual Forces Auto True 1 1 | eBay


Seems like its not worth it at all break wise though. The value isn't that great coming out of it when you are paying $375 for one auto. Crazy that some of the autos are #ed to as high as 70 as well. Also is pretty similar feel to Exquisite

It's tough. Seems like a good amount of the autos sell in the $35-$80 range, which is quite a risk with a $350 pack.

I mean all boxes are a gamble, this just seems like a big unnecessary one, when you look at auctions like this

2012 All Time Greats Tiger Woods Signatures Auto 2 10 Card GA TW3 | eBay

That's a nice Tiger Woods /10 auto that sells for the price of the box. Actually with ebay fees, you'd only make about $335 on that.

One of the toughest basketball related breaks in a long time. Great product for singles, but anybody who broke this in volume got destroyed

Yeah I can't imagine spening $350 on one auto and three base cards as a gamble. Unreal.

If there were 2 autos per box, I think that'd be a good price, Or just change the $350 price to $200.

To think that there's "hits" in this product that have sold on ebay for $20 is crazy. That's like buying a $100 box and selling everything for only $5.50. Yikes

Some of the cards definitely looks nice. I am trying to pick up a Landon Donovan auto from it. Break-wise yeah not worth it, but I think if I can grab a Donovan auto on nice card stock in gold ink for less than $40 that's a pretty good deal.

Instead of spending $350/box, I picked up a Hogan for $70 and probably see if I can snag a Tiger cheap. I dont care for the MJ or Gretzky out of the set. Looking for any figures that dont need to be associated to a lisc team. Hogan/tyson/tiger.

This is a terrible product to get value on your return. Even the MAJORITY of the all time forces wont even pay for half of your box.

Everytime I pick up a auto from this ATG (this year or last year) with 1/3 of the box price, I feel bad for the seller. Even some of the /5 parallel base from last year couldn't sell for more than $10.

Very risky. Especially college uni!
But just watch Clydefreak on YouTube just pulled a north Carolina Michael Jordan and the reaction to it.wow. is worth the moment and money if you really have the means.
But risking it? For investmebt . No way!

pretty much exactly what I am thinking as well. I think the Tiger Woods autos look the nicest and like your non league affiliated idea OJ. Those could be some sweet autos to go for.

As a huge soccer fan, I wish Lionel Messi was on the checklist. He's arguably greatest of all time, and from what I've read/heard, a humble and genuine person - such rarity nowadays.

Do you think UD will ever sign him? Just curious.
