Default 2011/12 SPX/SPA insight...

So upper deck's SPX & SPA will be coming out soon. SPX comes out around May 8th. I will be getting a couple boxes. SPA comes out in June. Anyone else looking forward to getting these products? Do you prefer one over the other?

I'll more than likely try a box or two of SPX. Never been a huge fan of SPA, mainly because of all those damn base packs. No memerobilia other than those case hit patch auto's really bothers me as well. SPX is the way I'll be going.

I really liked SPx last year. I have high hopes for this year. I liked the various hits. I didn't care as much for SPA. The base design was too plain for me.

SPA has a very hardcore following and the future watch autos of the big guns are worth much more than the SPX, even with double the print run, and they are on card auto's. The FW patches are very valuble as are the multi signature Sign of the Times. I go for SPA due to the fact you get 3 hard signed autos per box as opposed to one in SPX.

If The Cup and Ultimate were actually affordable to us everyday Joe's I'd agree with you.

Well it looks like Ultimate will be about $95 per box. Nice product, but you only get 4 cards. I like to open packs, so that's a lot for one pack of cards.
