WOW, it does say alot about what can get passed as a good idea at UD... I think it is funny, but it raises some questions about UD as a company...

I wonder if they are trying to do something like Topps did (with Jeter/Bush/Mantle) just to get some buzz for their name.

I like the poke on the card about getting "Bazooka Joe back into the 21st century".

Yeah, because UD is just light year's ahead of everyone else.

Just makes UD look like little brats that didin't get what they wanted. I think it would be great if Eisner sued them for millions. Not that I'm saying he has reason to sue but stranger things have won in court before.

That was hillarious. It was probably an in-house joke made by someone over there that "accidentally" got into the packaging. Given the nature of the negotiations this summer, this is not that surprising.

There are over a dozen cards just like this one listed on Ebay right now. Help me understand something please...

This card just sold for $310. But there is a seller on Ebay right now with the exact same card and a BIN for $199. Wouldn't it make more sense for everyone that has this card to sell it for BIN $275 or more? Why keep cutting each other's throats? Am I missing something here?

Don't get me wrong. Since I'm a collector more so than a seller, I don't mind at all, but I feel it's killing the hobby and making sellers want to quit doing what they love.

Here's the link:

I don't know the exact answer but I would guess that the new sellers believe that they must sell their card as soon as possible before more of the same cards show up on ebay and the price drops like a rock. In other words a bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush. It's been proven that sellers will never sell the same cards for the same fixed price. It's been tried on this board and it didn't take long for someone to drop their price, always with a valid reason, and then the snowball effect begins. There's more reasons but this is enough for now.

I agree with you, and I guess I knew the answer before I even asked the question. It's just too bad everyone keeps shooting themselves in the foot.

Just another reason to not like sucker deck. Always a topps fan, never liked upper deck even though I have a few cases for sale in my room I will continue to only bust topps products.

Well, just went to my local shop......apparently it sounds like UD is trying to recall the unopened tins and rerelease the product. I guess there is some copyright infringement mentioning "Bazooka" on the card.

So can you still buy some of these tins, or did your local shop stop selling them so he can return them?

Haha, no I only bought 1. I figured I'd quit while I was close to even.

I was just at a shop and the owner told me that he heard that UD has sent out the letters to have the shop owners stop selling them. He said he would sell them until he gets the letter in hand. So I bought two tins and sure as sh*t I hit the Buysner card.

Won't be long now before the Buysner card will be $5.00 or so.
