I don't think this break will happen until after you get back anyway.

But I hope I am wrong!

The cases should be in the mail set to arrive tomorrow. I don't think we have a problem as they should have been shipped yesterday or early today before the stop was put in.

Wow, a cease and desist order? That's a little too late.

Maybe we should sit on these cases for a little while. There may be a severe increase in the market price if Topps can stop some of the product from being released. Just a thought.

Or we can hit some cuts that shouldn't be in the product and market them as extremely rare due to the fact that UD does not hold the rights to them

I would think that a ton would've been sent out already. Of course, this entire debacle is my fault as I hemmed and hawed over getting a case or even two...which of course I didn't.

Wow, now this break is even more exciting because the cases are illicit now, lol. Is the plan still to start breaking as soon as they arrive?

Is there a chance Upperdeck could be made to not honor the redemptions of the players in question if they exist?

It would be interesting to know the "if's, when's and how many's" as far as cases getting pulled back by UD. This is rumor flying time, so who knows how much is true.......but if something big happens, we may all turn out pretty well with these breaks. I wish I had gotten more slots in all the cases instead of just #1!!!

I wonder what will be done with other UD products.......I see the checklist of UD Baseball Heroes has some of these guys in it too. I think I saw one card with Clemente and DiMaggio together. I'm sure this is true in other products as well.

*EDIT- OK, I had thought Clemente and DiMaggio were two of the guys Topps got rights to, but now I don't see them listed in info about the lawsuit.......so it appears my comment is irrelevant!!! Sorry!
