Default Anyone looking forward to UD black and its 200.00 price tag

Looks like it will be out next week. Triple threads football got pushed back. So i will have to do 1-2 blacks.

Just have no idea how the value will be close to the msrp?

Basketball has mj bron and kobe . Pulling manning ap montana marino etc... will not cover it.

Rookie value is better in NFL than NBA so the rookie might help.

Thoughts?

In fact, after even touching a box of UD Black I used a little Purell to get the germie-germs off me hands!

Nah, there will no doubt be some killer pulls, but I think to be on the safe side you've got to buy at least a case.

yeah i dont see how anyone can buy this as a box but picking up singles on the secondary market may be hard

I for one initially planned on getting more, but financially I no longer can, so one box will have to do. I personally expect to get killed on this, nothing like handing UD a free $200

I won't be buying any. $200+ for a few cards is too expensive for me.

That might sum up the card industry as a whole, no just UD Black.

The look of the cards is amazing and there are some nice pulls, but being like Topps Triple Threads but even more expensive, I don't think your return on investment will be good. I would just buy the singles you want online. Also I wouldn't wait for this product to go down in price, because with the limited quantity I see this product holding it's box price. I hope I am wrong and there are several valuable cuts autos that you get 1 per case and that the dual and quad autos are prevalent, because these cards look better than any card I have ever seen.
