07/08 Cup? That won't be until July at the earliest! Why wait that long when I can spend now AND later?!

I just talked to one of the mass distributer's for ud and he does not think there is going to be the cup this year. He thinks there replacing it with black.

I can't believe that ud would do this the cup has been so awesome. But then that makes sense ud policy is to NOT MAKE a good product right?

If money is no object the The Cup. However, if you want to break something now, I really think that Sweet Shot is a nice break for the money spent. You can see my 20 tin break in the breaks section to get an idea of how the product looks.

Do they think they are going to add it in addition to The Cup? I would imagine UD would love to make 2 premium products and try and suck more money out of people.

I talked to a distributor too and they stated that they were waiting for a week or two after UC came out so they didn't hurt UC sales

Now that would make more sense to me if they decided to release Black and The Cup. That means more money for UD with 2 premium products.

Well, Ultimate is on sale this weekend if that helps. I just picked up one case and there is one more in stock right now. $1109 with the coupon, can't beat that....

I hate to say I don't break much (as much as I would like) but have been looking at ordering a box of The Cup and had a general question. Why do they release it in July when it is not hockey season?

To keep interest in hockey products year round.

Mr Snyder - Go with The Cup! IMO its a no brainer. The quality of cards is much better than Ultimate.
