Question Sweet shot hockey????

Why would UD put signed baseball skins in this product?? I mean, if you get one, its going to be a top notch player, but why would you have a hockey player sign on a baseball skin? why not get them to sign an actual puck or something. Not the whole puck, but cut it down to fit into a card.

IMO its really lame...I was thinking about buying a couple of tins, but I think that is really, really stupid....

As for baseball players signing baseball skins, very cool!

.02 of mine given.

Probably because the puck is black and bland. Then you would have to sign it with a gold or silver marker which probably comes off alot easier on the rubber of the puck. Meanwhile on a a baseball sleeve the blue or red ink will sink into the sleeve and has a better chance of not wiping off.

Nope. For the same reason I stated. Don't celebrities other than baseball players sign on the baseball sleave as well in SS BB?

I could see the reasoning of it smearing after the player signs but hell I have seen smeared sigining on many different cards ect. I actaully have many pucks autographed in silver/gold marker.....once it is dry it really wont wear off at all. I am sure that they would probly have many smeared pucks though since these guys sign so many items and sign them so damn fast just to get through it all. Maybe that their worry????? They don't want customers calling them for damage/smeared puck cards. Just MO though. I do see what your saying though Steve, I would actaully be very dissapointed if I pulled a great auto on a baseball skin.

I personally thought it would be cool to pop one of the ballskin hockey play autos, I like how they do that and hate how they made those signature shots on a foil hockey puck last year...I have a tin coming tomorrow by the way so I will show you how awesome my sid the kid ballskin auto looks

I wouldn't go as far as saying I would be disappointed to get an Orr or a Ovechkin on a baseball skin, I would be thrilled to get an auto of one of those guys. Just to me it doesn't make sense. UD couldn't think of anything better to get them to sign? Again, lame IMO.

What do they do with the leftover ballskin? Do they use it in the next year's product.

Not Black foil it's on rubber - Doesn't say on back of card if it's a game used puck or not.
