Question New 1/1 NFL Logo Shield Look AWFUL

This may have been brought up, if so oh well, but they look awful and VERY CHEAP.

Have they really done away with the logo shields like the exquisite below?

this card below is a 1/1 lol and looks like crap IMO, the ryan below looks a million times better. With crap like this below no way the market stays strong. What's your take?





Edit: I am not comparing design or high end vs low end...the logo looks cheap in the new products vs old products and I believe that will severely hurt card values going forward...FYI

This has been brought up before, and yea, in my opinion, they suck. Right when the Nike jerseys came out, I noticed that the shields were plastic or rubber or something like that. Logoshields were the card to get, now they look ugly.

So nike put out new jersey that has those cheap looking shields, WOW. They obviously did not care about collectors who collect certain items. One reason I think those who have jsy # collections are borderline insane, at some point the fad will end or the player will change his # or get traded. Point being everything changes, and most times it is for the worse, most times...

The Osweiler was a Nike jersey, the Ryan was a Reebok jersey. The Reebok's were stitched, the Nike's are just pressed on or something. I forget who, maybe Larry Fitzgerald, but I noticed during a game this past weekend that a WR had lost their logoshield lol.

I agree, the 1/1 which is the new version reminds me of these...tell me if I am wrong? I know they are not the same, but at first glance they look the same. First impression is CHEAP and people do not pay top dollar for 1/1s that looks cheap in my experiences...

They do look like those cards, but the Powell is not a used logoshield of course.
I'll miss the stitched shields.

I agree with you 100%. The new 1/1's look cheap. At first glance, they do look alike

Yeah, sorta sad to see them look so cheap. People been in this game a while and love collecting and those do nothing for this hobby except bring it down IMO.

It is like was anyone thinking about the people who collect cards when they made this decision or the fact it is a billion + dollar industry...

No chance they were thinking about collectors, they were thinking about the $! Let's be honest, just about any product, shoes, jerseys, whatever, with the Nike swoosh on it will sell.

Reminds me of these "gummy helmet" cards, except with the NFL Logo instead of the team helmet:

That's one way to tell a real jersey from a cheap knockoff. The real jersey has a plastic shield.

Calm down...At least it isn't a thread, about wondering what to do with a case of Exquisite.

Not that big of a deal.

these will definetly cause a decrease in the market for these... nobody wants a plastic shield it almost makes it look fake even tho its not. my favorites were always the reebok logo cards

The new shields are neoprene, which is the exact same material used on those helmet cards.

I could take or leave them really, they actually match the NFL logo, but the shields aren't as detailed. It's all event worn anyway :P

I think the alarming thing is prior to this you thought they did care. Why in God's sweet holy taco name would Nike even remotely think about 1/1 logo shields when they design jerseys? Why on earth would that even be brought up? If some poor schmuck in a meeting brought that up, he would be shot....then fired.
