Default Message from UD: 2010 SP Prospects Baseball

As we have spent a significant amount of time talking to our direct accounts and distributors over the last few weeks, it seems clear the situation with the baseball category as a whole currently is very tenuous. While we had great hopes for our 2010 SP Prospects Baseball product, we do not feel the timing is right to issue a new release into an already very crowded baseball market. Therefore we will be postponing the release of our 2010 SP Prospects Baseball product at this time and working it into the calendar for 2011 where the market will hopefully have recovered. Any current orders will be canceled and we will resolicit at a later time.

Thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,

Mike Phillips
Director of Hobby Sales
The Upper Deck Company

Just FYI. Any preorders place with Blowoutcards will be refunded back today and a email sent out to those who ordered it. You will be able to reorder once the product is resolicited.
Thanks

Me thinks that UD can't afford to pay these guys to sign.

I think they are probably making a good buisness decision. The economy is still struggling a bit.

It was a puff all right, coming straight out of Dick McWilliams' butt.

They probably saw the butt kicking topps chrome and the like are taking and realized it probably wasnt worth putting out the set.

i don't know if you could compare this to the raping that is Topps Chrome.... that's a veteran and rookie based product... this was going to be more or less direct competition to DEEE (which doesn't have a license anymore, thanks to UD)..... they probably would have done ok if they got all of the same guys to sign (Colon, Choice, Pomeranz, Taillon, Allie, and so on)

Yeah but DEEE is established along with Bowman Chrome and Prospects as the premier prospecting cards. not even close to the same. They must have realized stiff competition and how prospecting is becoming more popular now..
