This product used to be THE product, now it's eehhh.. I mean you can get A Dalton auto patch for $50. I wonder if Kirk Cousins will ever have a patch auto?

I'm a big fan of UD, but I think I'll just pick up the singles of the Buckeye guys. Definitely Posey in there, maybe Herron and/or some of the older guys.

I thought 2011 was really nice. Lots of people disagree.

I REALLLLLLY wish they would get their freakin' NFL license back!!

Exactly!!!! I miss spa from 2009 -2001. Some of the best cards, especially rookies/ patch/ autos.

NCAA uniforms ruin it for me. Which makes me shy away from picking up singles too.

Looks like it'll be as nice as last year's, which I though had some of the most well made cards I have ever held.

Shame they're pushing it back until Press Pass' exclusive hostage taking of Luck is gone.

Its a nice product. I dont get what the big deal is about the college unis. People will say its because they like a certain pro team, but did all the Colts fans sell their Mannings? Probably not.

that's true, and I think the college uni cards are great for people who are fans of college football. I mean its gotta be cool for a guy who is a big Vols fan for example to be able to pick up auto cards of Arian Foster or Peyton Manning wearing their college uni. But for guys who are strictly NFL fans and don't really follow college sports...meh, lol.

When does SPA come out this year?

Since they made SPX its own set this year instead of doing the bonus pack, I wasn't sure if they were skipping SPA or not

UD has gotten about as irrelevant as you can get in football. They push out UD Football fast to beat the licensed products at the start of the year then completely vanish until the end of the season basically. Then SPA gets some play really on name only, other marquee products like Contenders now dwarf it. And finally they strategically wait FOREVER to get Exquisite out so it doesn't have to go head to head with Five Star and National Treasures.

SPA is riding on brand history only at this point, and if it stays NCAA licensed even that will fade eventually.
