Default Something else besides the cup

I'm thinking that I should stray away from the cup for a while (ie until 07-08 comes out). Any recommendations? I might still stick with the cup but I want to hear some input before I go further into debt after that deplorable break.

Also, should I redeem that kostityn?

If you can find out if UD has it on hand, I'd say redeem it. If not, sell it. You don't want to have to wait months and then get a crappy replacement because they don't have the card.

Even though I have never had a problem with UD redemptions, they seem pretty crappy. So some athlete decides not live up to the contract with UD and not sign his cards. They send a crappy replacement and people who are trying to complete a set can't do it.

CB - I have a hard enough time breaking away from hockey to buy a couple boxes of football here and there...anything in hockey worthwhile, or is The Cup my best bet?

Last time I went to my local shop, I bought 6 packs of Playoff Contenders, 1 pack of Chirography and 1 pack of Sweet Spot football. BY FAR, I did the worst in Sweet Spot........granted it was only 1 pack so I was expecting to get a kick in the nads. My 2 autos were Antonio Pittman (helmet auto) and Mark Clayton (pigskin auto). I'm generally not a big fan of Sweet Spot myself. If I do end up trying it, its usually a 1 and done for me no matter what I get

Series 2 Upper Deck should be a winner! SP Authentic is a close 2nd.

I'm not sure yet. I'm waiting for the new CC to arrive and I will make my decision then!!! Kind of a scary thought. Are you gonna get a case FLO? I may just wait till the end of the month if I get a case of The Cup becayse I will have more funds available then.

I think so, I have some room on my CC so I might do it, but I might wait until my auctions are done to do it.
