Default 2010-2011 The Cup Packout

Looking good!

2010-11 NHL The Cup | Facebook

I wonder if all of the Honorable Numbers are hand numbered...looks odd. Also note that not all of the 1/1 base are flag tags as one would infer from the sell sheet.

Well, What little faith I had in UD is even further diminished. This is a screw up, no question, and a BAD one. (I'm the Joey guy posting there).

I PLAY goalie and not to sound cocky but I know what I'm talking about in regards to goalie cut/style jerseys.

That was done so no one would try to sell the cards. There are alot of "errors" in the original sell sheet for a specific reason.

Heres what I posted on it just in case they delete it...

Joey Maestas:

First of all I PLAY goalie and know what I'm talking about, not to sound cocky. And I would LOVE to hear UD's explanation on this one. Now, granted, some players did and do wear goalie cut jerseys. No question there. And in regards to the C...CM label, jerseys have been made by CCM for a long, long time now. Even the current RBK Edge ones. So that explains that. BUT, Goalie cut/style (same exact thing) jerseys come in a 56G, 58G, or 60G cut. I have NEVER seen a 54G jersey. And what does Vanek wear? A normal 54. Notice here the Tag does NOT say Goalie Style. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...4371&hlp=false

And here, it's a 54. http://auction.nhl.com/cgi-bin/ncomm...unbr=101052630

I own several NHL/AHL issued jerseys that are true goalie cuts with a 58G or 60G cut if anyone needs to see them. But unless UD has a REALLY good explanation, this is a screw up.

Aaaaand UD's reply...

"Upper Deck: We have the best fans! Knew you guys would be able to catch the error here. This card will not be packing out in 2010-11 NHL The Cup. We had a couple other small errors we picked out of the lot, but this was the biggest we found."

Still. Kiiiiinda scary that this even happened in the first place.

Yeah, they were just testing us.

It will be interesting to see if that card becomes a redemption now or is simply dropped.

You know, honestly, that screw up might very well have turned me off UD for good. Other then base cards, etc.

Maybe you should bust a bunch of Panini products then? I hear they are full of value....

I'm not in it for the value, thank god. Both companies are going down the pooper in my mind in regards to game used stuff. Panini still has a shot if they get their act together, but theres the whole UD going to "Game used by Joe Shmuck" to "Game used memorabilia", and then they mess up a 1/1 and then post it to "test" their fans? Doesn't sound too Kosher to me. Just seems like more and more screw ups. I dunno, we'll see. Then again I'm one of those "I <3 ITG" idiots that everyone on here loves so much, so whatever. BUT If it says Budaj I'll buy it no matter who makes it.

I can't think of a year the cup didn't look good! Really wish I could bust a box or two of this. Just a little too high-end for me . Maybe next year!

I hope like last year they show all of the /99 rookies. They've showed Subban so far and there are only like two really great patches. Those will bring a crazy premium.

I don't think they've posted one yet.

Looks like a really great selection of players for the Property Of cards. I love the draft board booklets and the Stick Signings cards!

However, they also hand numbered the gold rookies which is lame.

Also, can anyone confirm the release date? I'm hearing end of August, and end of September. It shouldn't take over a month to pack out, right?

Would love to get my hands on that Lemieux Limited Logos card. That is a thing of beauty! Although my boycott of UD stands, so I will not be purchasing again this year.

Probably just going to stay away from the high end hockey this year. Load up on BDPP as it looks like it will be a huge winner if my gut is right...and they get a bunch of the top tier guys to sign.

Been around. Haven't spent much time in the hockey forums as I haven't bought any in a long time. Working on the Pick'em league and will have that up in a day or 2.
