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?

I think he is playing well. He plays for Montreal right? I would say redeem it before it expires....LOL:D

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.

hockeyjunkie99 01-08-2008 10:21 AM

If its in stock you'll get in a week or two.

Boo 01-08-2008 10:38 AM

Yea it shouldn't take long to get it if UD has it.

CaptainBOHICA 01-08-2008 10:57 AM

flo, call upper deck and they'll tell you whether or not the card is in stock.....

and to answer your post, a little birdy told me 2007 razor poker and 2007 bowman chrome football are GREAT breaks :rolleyes:

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?

How is Sweet Spot Football? I've heard mixed reviews.

CaptainBOHICA 01-08-2008 12:05 PM

When is the cup coming out?

flobert1205 01-08-2008 12:25 PM

Sometime inthe early summer, maybe even late spring... But i think last year it came out in july.

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.

flobert1205 01-08-2008 02:41 PM

Eh, I'm probably going with a case of the Cup 06-07. Although the new hot prospects is coming out soon, might wait for that....decisions decisions!

flobert1205 01-09-2008 12:16 PM

Alright guys, should I go for another case of The Cup (06-07)? I'm torn of what I should do!!!!!

YES!!!! :D I'm not sure I'd ever say no to that question lol

hockeyjunkie99 01-09-2008 01:16 PM


Me First......!!!:D

flobert1205 01-09-2008 01:53 PM

HJ, are you getting a case?????

hockeyjunkie99 01-09-2008 01:58 PM

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.

flobert1205 01-09-2008 02:10 PM

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.

flobert1205 01-09-2008 03:17 PM

I've decided to see how well I do on my box of trilogy until I buy the case of the c-u-p! I should have that by tonight! wish me luck!!!!

hockeyjunkie99 01-09-2008 03:23 PM

I just opened a box of Trilogy I bought today. I will Post it in a new thread with scans in a few minutes!

hockeyjunkie99 01-09-2008 03:29 PM
