Default Competition among NFL licensed manufacturers

Am I the only one who is desperately hoping that UD re-enters the NFL market?

would be nice to see well designed cards however their customer service/appreciation is so bad that I don't know if it's worth it.

i would be fine with them getting back into it. i miss the sp authentic rookies like they are supposed to be...in NFL uniforms! like saintsfan said though, their customer service was HORRIBLE. maybe let them back on a year by year basis depending on how well their customer service is

Panini and Topps are hoping they never get it back.

i hope they never get back, not because of the cards, i like them a lot. because of the shady business they did and still do. if they can't pay the companies who did/do the hardwork for them and players who sign all the stuff for them, then they don't deserve to be supported by any collector.

I'd like to see UD come back...I miss some of their products, especially at the NFL level. Need more competition and Topps/Panini are just putting out the same crap with each passing product.

I vote for an option not on the board. Give Panini, Topps, and UD all a license but limit each manufacturer to only 3 - 4 products a piece.

I'd love to see Upper Deck obtain an NFL license. I stay away from the NCA unis, regardless of their great designs.

Panini just continues to regurgitate the same junk every year. I'd have no problem with them being eliminated.

Best idea so far, wish I'd thought of it....

UD has done nothing but bad things for a long time...they have horrible customer service and at best "questionable" business ethics...why bring them back? Horrible company.

I'd rather see Press Pass made legit.
