Default Anyone buying 2010 NCAA Sweet Spot?

Trying to decide if this is worth buying or not. Any opinions?

Going to be hard to say without seeing the first breaks. Someone posted today its been delayed (which I hope not). If it is, I hope its so that they are acquiring more cards so there will be less redemption's. IMHO I think this could be a huge product (and I'm in for a case). that being said, minus the sell sheet, there is no info on this that i'm aware of. This was supposed to release at the end of the month. No checklist yet, makes me a little concerned.

Somebody had said it was on Upper Deck's facebook that it was delayed but I didn't see it on there. The Upper Deck website only had release dates up to June 22nd when I checked on there. I'm running a group break for it if you're interested.

I talked to a friend of mine who owns a card shop. And hes betting the farm on Sweet Spot. He is usually right when it comes down to forcasting products. I hope so.

I'm taking a shot at 4 or 5 boxes. The bigger HOFer and veteran autos appeared to be low numbered so I figure they'll be case hit type pulls. I expect there will be a lot of lower tier type rookie autos but I like the look so WTH. I think its worth a shot.

The case is at $1695.00. I think the boxes are around $96.

Ill be buying several boxes of it. It looks great and Ive had good luck with Sweet Spot in the past. The college theme looks cool and is something different, It will be really cool for the HOFers

I'll probably be getting a couple of boxes of it as well. I would like to join the group break on here but I'm waiting on a set release date before I commit.

How do the cards look crappy? Its like every other football sweet spot thats been out....

IF you like college logos then you'll love this product. If you don't, then you won't. But there are enough college collectors out there that even if you don't break a box you'll still pick it up on the secondary market.

Well, if its like every other sweet spot thats been out like you said above, it will be crap. Expect horrid content and boxes to go down to about $45-50. I dont see this stuff holding any value. Only shot it has is if UD makes a statement kinda like they did with Ultimate baseball and they load it.

It looks like there will be at least 2 sweet spot autos and 4 GU per box. Id bet there are 3 sweet spot sigs per box tho. Sure, you won't make your money back on 70% of boxes...but thats all wax, not just UD and not just this product.

Im no UD fan but I think they'll do this product right with their limited resources. They can't really afford any more screw ups. And look at their recent history....Ultimate, Sig Stars and Series 1 were all good products. Sure, Sig Stars sells for about 65% of what it once did, but that doesn't mean its not packed with solid content. As long as you don't jump all in on these wild card products before they are busted you are fine.

Ill presale a box at $100. If it doesn't work out then im not mad. If I can't afford to spend a little bit of money on a hobby, then why am I in the hobby?

And there's a difference between the content not being great and not getting content. I understand that UD is guilty of both in the past, but I don't gwt why people rush to judgement on stuff on here so quick.

I remember when people were dumping on 2009 Bowman Draft before it even came out and not giving it a try. Turns out the auto checklist was really really solid and some of the guys who were trashing it turned out to be some of the biggest breakers of it.

The vets will set this set apart from Press Pass. Im chomping at the bit to get a Drew Brees auto on a Purdue helmet! This set will shock you with its popularity. Sure there will be some scrub rookies in here but the checklist will be diverse enough to make you forget about Press Pass.

Press Pass Legends has vets. I will never completely understand why that product gets so little love. If they sold it in a big wooden box and it was called "Upper Deck Legends"; it'd be scorching.

I think it is going tobe great - I hope they have a PHIL SIMMS on a MOREHEAD helmet! That is a long shot but he is the only good payer to come from there and that is where I graduated from!

NCAA Sweet Spot FB has been pushed back to Early August, i think the date is August 5th to be exact

This product certainly does intrigue me. At 6 hits per box it certainly does look the part of a bang for your buck product, but With any rookie/college based set, you just hope that its not some glorified version of SP Threads (Which I've been told is coming out late October for all who care).

Before i go buying any boxes of this, i think i'll do what a previous poster suggests and join a group break, or simply watch people break it first-just to get any idea of how it breaks- if 7th round draft picks and undrafted FAs start coming out at an alarming rate then I'm gonna have to pass on it lol

I was going to post something like this yesterday as well.

I called my LCS yesterday to verify the number of boxes I was getting. He called all three of his distributers who all told him they didn't think it would even be released. I expressed my surprise at this because I thought it was a done deal but he told me they said it was all smoke and mirrors.

I guess we'll see.
